1. The foils were to have been made in China so no problem with volcanos there.
2. There were none made as of 2 weeks ago when I spoke to the owner and certainly none delivered or I think this forum would know.


I have just seen a pic of one that arrived in Japan!

Looks like foils are arriving!

Better late than never, I say.

I have a question to Mr Carafino : What is the definitive configuration of the stabilizer ?
On some pictures, the winglets are pointing down and on others they are pointing up.

Your way of talking to people is a shame for the kitesurfing world. I have ner read such things before.

That is because I am a working man, not a politician. I do not take much B.S. from guys hiding on a forum, what for?

I'm curious, if the front and rear wings are removable for transportation :?:

That is a great question....... winglets as you call them are known as wing tips. Wing tips reduce slippage. also known as yawing. They help you to track in a straight line. Up or down, the purpose is to track.

Thanks for your quick answer Mr Carafino ! So the stabilizer works fine in both configurations ? Is it the same on all of the pictures ?

Another question : Are the new wings compatible with the old Carafino MX9 t-bar ?

does that imply that the foil sections are symmetric?
...and that the interface with the fuselage is a good fit in both directions?

or just you way of providing additional trim adjustments?

oops.
so much for Toby's new posting protocol...sorry
