Correct, there is no need for the nose if front wing is fused with fuselage. If wing is bolted below fuselage then does the later have to protrude?

If it is aluminum, then rounding the nose is a trivial mod. Use some grinder, sander, or just plain hand file tool. I don't see why fuselage has to be round.

It's probably just a strength thing. The question about removing it is really a question of how "overbuilt" you think your fuselage is that cutting some off won't have a negative effect on the front wing's attachment.

For what it's worth I have broken a Sword2 in a crash where the fuselage cracked right up the middle there, so I certainly wouldn't recommend it with a Sword. Given how close the construction seems to Moses, it's not a recommendation I'd make. Having ridden a foil with a pointy nose for over 18 months, it was never a problem for me; once I learned how to ride it was a 100% non-issue. Might be something worth living with and considering in the future if/when you get a new one.

Anyone have pics of what wings are available for the Ghost Whisper? In the first page of this thread, looks like two different sets out there so far... also any idea of how then compare to Moses HF?

Found this pic of the two available wingsets.
Looks like last years Moses Vorace Competition and Fluente wings.

The Fluente wing is 550, this one is 545. I can't find the 545 on the Moses website tho...

Which Moses wing is recommended for wave riding / easier to ride at lower speeds?

That would be the Moses W548, looks like the 550 but has a deeper profile which creates more lift and lower speeds.

nope. the GW FR 545 is not 548 wing. It's a 558 with rounded and shortened wingtips. The GW stabilizer measures 330mm and has winglets so it must be Moses 330 stabilizer.

The 545 looks similar to moses 558 and the 578 similar to the old moses race wing 580.
