Well if it has to be available to order right now.

Moses Comet and Levitaz Bionic would be the top ones. The Spotz Shark should be pretty good too, although I have not tested it yet. We are also getting a Z-Fins Foil in soon to test, that will probably be a contender too.

Hahah, the Banga also does not have a complete website.

So ill make the questions again: The top 3 best race foils available to order? :)
The Delta foil is becoming very popular on the East Coast US. The price is very good (around $3k complete with board), made with best materials (ultra high modulus solid carbon), and available very quickly (about 1 month lead time, made to order).

I just picked one up. Crazy fast and stable. I haven't tried a lot of the other top race foils, but others say it competes with the best (definitely better than spotz4 shark, even competes with unobtainium foils :o ).

Not sure how the pricing works out if you are in Europe though. Also it is not IKA certified if that matters to you. To me, if I was going to do an international event it would definitely be the hydrofoil pro tour, not the IKA events.

It's a GoPro 5 Black which has GPS built in. It is sort of accurate. Here is the Polar from my Suunto Ambit.

Thanks

Exactly - it is IMO no doubt THE best program to analyze things, and most of us use this one.

Cost almost nothing, and you have one month trial also :naughty:

Yann who made it has developed an absolute masterpiece :thumb:

Of course there could be some twirks yes, but you can do whatever you want in terms of analyzing.

He did not ask what was readily available, he just asked what was the best. :-)

Delta, Banga, Levitaz.

Get a Delta, it's faster than a Mike's lab.
