Real apples & oranges choice. The Glide is less than half the cost of the RSX, which is in turn around half the cost of the foil options. But have they finally made a hybrid that really works, after all the numerous attempts ? Of course reading this thread we have a bias for foiling, but the Olympics will need to decide if they want a Nacra or a Laser.

Unless I misundestand, the price is actually not the shocker everyone was expecting for a foil option. As absurdly expensive as the RS:X was, this seems more realistic.
