Anyone Have the 2019 Slingshot DwarfCraft Micro 36?

Postby oregonkiter » Sat Jul 07, 2018 4:22 am

Any chance you can pull a measurement for me? I need to know the distance from the rear of the mast track to the rear of the board on the 2019 DC 36 Micro. Currently riding a big surf wing on the 2018 DC36, and it's ALL the way back. From the photos it looks like SS moved the track forward several cm on the 2019 DC Micro, compared to the 2017/18/19 36 DC?

Obliged!

My 3’6” Dwarfcraft 2016 setting for 590 is 100-110mm between center of rear mast plate screw and back of my rear foot. 25mm less than that for 633. What about yours?

The micro has a kicker, just as my 2016 Dwarfcraft so real 55mm are pretty useless - just back side of the kockr and space behind it.

It certainty looks that tracks are more forward on the micro and I have a feeling I’ll have the 590 all the way back and will probably keep 633 on the old board

Also curious about the weight of this board. I’m not seeing it anywhere online.

On my 2018 DC 36, with the 2017 105cm GW mast, I have my 2017 GW plate all the way back including using the additional rear mounting holes that are 1" forward of the other. The 2017 GW plate is longer than the 2018's, with three mounting holes an inch apart in front, and two sets in the rear. The 633 feels perfect on that board in this set-up. If the new micro has a track farther forward I would have to shim the mast to tilt forward, or drill another rear hole set in the plate, which I know one can do, but I would rather not.

Does anyone have any intel on the release date of the SS Micro in the US? I’d love to get one but all the retailers are saying they don’t have them in stock yet.
