I enjoy my LPs very much. I have the 590 wings on 24" and 39" masts. I had a 720 wing on a 39" that I sold to my friend (who enjoys it very much). The LP is very maneuverable side to side. Some call this characteristic "unstable." I like freestyle and wave riding. I jump my LP hundreds of times during a long day of riding. While both wing have good glide for riding waves, the 720 had longer glides, but was slower and didn't jump as well. I've used other foils and currently use a 24" CRX for tandem with my GF. She likes jumping and doing 360s. The CRX wing is less maneuverable, but it's very stable and has good lift for us at 306# wet. Whether you'll enjoy an LP depends mainly on your riding style.

I love unstable, skatey foils, but didn't like LP one bit. The boards they got right IMO. Boards are super solid and well made, with good support from LP as well. But for freestyle I love Lift's 110 and 150 - much less effort to stay on foil, but way more skatey feel than LP. For 6ft+ waves, it's Moses 633 all the way.

I agree, I would even say LP's foil construction is probably better quality than Moses back in 2016/17, however their foil is not as smooth, pitch sensitive to whats available today from Moses

Wow, those tandem pictures are impressive! I have no idea how this feels exactly, but can imagine the challenge to keep balance foiling with a second person..
Thank you all for the great input, thanks to which I do think I have a pretty good idea of the LP foil characteristics now.
Based on the input I am going to try mastering the LP, I hope I will succeed..
