I ride the 550 and 633 back to back a good bit 550 strapped and 633 strapless and IMO unless going for a jumping session amazingly there isn't that much difference. Despite the larger size of the 633 I'm impressed with the low drag speed and turning. I also have the 683 and trying to like it... now that wing is a different beast for sure.

I have the 325 too and used it last season for 5-8 sessions. It has less yaw and roll stability making ride more agile, but more difficult to control. It works with the 550 and 548. I have not tried it yet with the 590.
I found it was better at speed and was less pitch sensitive.

So it seems Moses have a good 2018 Race setup, but doesnt have any board to use it. Whats going on with the T80 board?

T60 Sport:
- Same shape as T60.
- No pad, but 'grip paint' (what's the right term?)
- front footstrap positions moved 5cm forward
- foil position moved 2,5cm to the rear

The purpose is to work better in combination with the Comet and Vorace R.
Could also be a good choice for the Onda.

That is the information I got, currently waiting for first delivery.

Cheers,
Frank

Would make more sense to just put tracks on the T60 and add some more strap positions.

That's more flexibility for sure. But I like 4 holes setup as it's very strong and I don't care that much about the positions as I ride strapless :)

I'll test Moses T60 Sport tomorrow!

It just doesnt make any sense to have 2 types of T60 with holes, Moses had 1 board that could be used with all their Foil range, now they took that away from their customers. They took the "easy" way to fix a problem they discovered late, the fact that the 637 race wing need to be installed around 8cm to the back of the board, but now their customers cannot use a "single board" for all their kite foil range anymore.

I hear you. Moses T60 Sport has pretty wind range for footstrap positions, so I believe it may work with all the latest Moses foils, but that needs to be checked.
