Slingshot Ghost Whisperer Foil

Postby Mozorello » Fri Jan 13, 2017 3:21 am

Hi Guys:

Anybody had a chance to try one of these out yet or know any more info than is what is on the website?
I believe the wing is made by Moses and the mast made in the USA??

They say there is an assortment of wings that will be available. Will these be the Moses family of wings or will they be Slingshot designed?
There's a short video put out by the guys in Houston, but no real performance feedback.

Seems like they've been out for about a month but I haven't seen any significant commentary yet.

Thanks!

At current exchange rates, the Moses is a bit cheaper (1200 euros vs 1400 dollars), but once you work in shipping and import fees it is probably the same.
Are they actually the same foil though?
Moses fluente wing is advertised as a 550 mm wing while slingshot has "576" written on it (no indication of what that refers to, though), slingshot mast is also longer. Either way, it's nice to see the carbon foils coming down in price so much.

Does the GW have an aluminum fuselage like the Moses? If so that's a deal breaker for me. Either all carbon or all aluminum at least for salt water environments.

Why some of them read "Ghost Whisper" and some "Ghost Whisperer"??

Even on the picture above ^^^ box says "whisperer", mast says "whisper" but picture on top of the thread has mast with "whisperer" on it :) :)

The ones that have wrong word will be worth more to collectorers.

Looking really good, as the Moses IS good, and nice to see one more almost full carbon in the US :thumb:

Only thing I would do immediately, is to cut/file/sand the sharp pointy nose, but should be really easy :naughty:
