You got a great foil !
What you may consider is adding the new W590 frontwing to your quiver.
Do you have the S330 or S325 rear wing?

Cheers,

Hello: Just purchased the 2018 Moses Vorace 558/330 and 325 wing. I found the 330 stabilizer vs the 325 makes a big difference in roll stability. Makes the foil a little stiffer but always good when learning. The 325 loosens the foil for turning. So try the 330 if you have not.

The 558 does not work very well with the 325 stabilizer, thats better for the 550, 548 and "maybe" the new 590.

The 330 is best for learning on 550 and 548. I have both 325 and 330 with 548 and 550 on 2016 Fluente. The learning curve has been there, but it is not insurmountable. I'm 58years and learned to go back n forth in 10 hours. 60 hours in and I'm doing gybe confidently in flat water, a less in chop and waves. You need to know I live in a cold tough place to kite and can't put in more than 60-70 sessions a year. Guys learning at same time as me on big levitaz wings, or Slingshot NF2 have not learned faster than me, and they are way younger than me.

I ordered the 590 to see it it will be better in choppy conditions, and plan on getting a vorace mast this season
