It really depends on your weight and what your riding discipline is really the 550 is for lighter riders and the 548 for heavier riders IMO I'm 225 and prefer the 548 for free ride/ocean waves with my weight.550 a bit faster too,but after a few years foiling I don't mind slowing down a bit enjoying the waves more.I believe the MHL/slingshot foil is very similar to the 2015 MHL foil with the triangular fuselage which I have and ridden extensively too,great foil too,comes down to preference really the fluente is a bit faster especially w 550 wing than the MHL and the MHL has a bit longer mast so a bit more Cadillac stable ride especially when choppy,both excellent foils really if you want to race or go faster go with the Moses,bit slower cruisy riding especially for bigger riders edge to MHL,another nice thing is moses has more wing/mast options as the 2015 MHL is no longer in production so that has to be considered too.On another note I've been riding the new MHL with a 150 wing just love that foil can't get enough riding that set up,save that for another thread though.
So I'm about to test both:
- the 548 wing with 330/325 stabilizers on 42"/28" masts
- Lift 150 on 36" mast

And a cherry on top, not lightwind really
- the 545 (aka 558) wing with 330/325 stabilizers on 42"/28" masts
Perhaps I might of missed it but your weight is a player,and your local conditions too.Like I said for a heavier rider really no contest for me as after many hours on both really like the new MHL 150 wing w 36 mast definitely gets the edge for ocean/swell riding free-riding just a great all around foil my favorite after couple years plus foiling.The Moses is a good foil as well faster good quality foil,just prefer the 150 MHL wing/mast package,another thing to think about is the fuselage weight is heavier(alum alloy) on the
Moses which can be a factor on water starts especially riding strapless as the foil/fuse wants to sink faster than a CF fuse,basically you have a hair more time as the foil will float a bit longer,which if you ride strapless is helpful,be curious to see what your or others take is on it?keep us posted

Can you please comment what do you think Lift 150 mast is made of? Received 32" mast and it doesn't look like carbon, rather as ABS molded plastic...
