Is there anyway to get both wings and both mast lengths without buying both P and F sets?

Certainly, you can order from your dealer what you want.... all parts are available separately and are all compatible. You can order the F foil with 90cm mast and in addition a P wing and 60 cm mast. I recommend wing covers as even small damage to the wings caused in transit can seriously reduce performance.

I had a quick go on one a couple of weeks back. P foil, 60cm, larger Jackson.
I would class myself as lower end on intermediate and normally ride Ketos with freeride 2 wing, 90cm strut.
1st impressions:
That P wing is a fatty!
Stable and V easy to ride
Can go amazing slow (& quite fast)
V Forgiving on touch downs (probably more to do with board than foil)
Surprisingly forgiving on surface breaches
Pretty heavy and not very sexy.
On choppy water I felt like it bobbled about (as if it was trying to follow the water surface) more than I am used to. This may be due to riding with the wing closer to the surface than I am used to with a longer mast.
Screws were loose when I came in! This seems to be a feature. Something like loctite might be a good idea. Or even better locking wire thread inserts.

That's it. It was only a quick go.

Hi hshim007

Thanks, the video I'm working on will tell much more info, such as the fact I am very much a beginner/intermediate to foiling (happy to mow the lawn back and forth but could not even think about toe side or gybes etc`) this foil setup aloud me to progress way quicker than I could ever have imagined

No Jacksons have shipped yet, we should start shipping next week.
145 Jackson is around 3.8 kg and the 120 around 3.3 kg.
I finally got my 145 Jackson board yesterday. However it felt a bit heavy, so I weight it. With straps and mounting hardware on (no foil, just bolts) it weighs 11.3 lbs, which is 5.1 kg. To make sure my weights are not defective, I weight my old Cabrinha Double agent, which is much bigger (165x50cm), with exactly the same straps + bolts on - it came to the same weight - 11.3 lbs!

Mark, even assuming the straps and bolts are around 1 lb, the weight is still way off then the one you posted earlier. I was hopping for a lighter setup, but now it is the same as my heaviest board and doesn't make much sense to have both. :( :( :( Has design changed since you posted the weight?

I'm considering switching to 120 cm, can you post the real weight difference between 145 and 120 Jacksons? Also, would you be able to help me to exchange it here in Toronto if I decide to do so?

Thank you!
