I've heard that Armstrong have a HA wing ready to go but won't release it untill worldwide markets improve.

Bugger that's a shame, would be good to get one for DW instead of a bigger wind wing.

Hopefully it gives them more time to refine it in testing. I'm definitely eager for the first HA Armstrong wing, would be nice around the 1100-1200 cm2 range.

Hard to understand. What do they have to lose by producing a small batch and seeing how they sell? In the meanwhile, they are losing potential customers who might be going to other brands that have well established high aspect wings.

Agreed, they could also have a few proto's doing the rounds - like Axis have at the moment with their 76/86 wings.

Once you buy an Armstrong kit you're not going anywhere else........because you're broke

I just got a 1550 kit with an 850 mast and 232 tail even got a free t shirt and hat. Price was only less than $800 more than a Takuma with alloy mast. Well worth the extra I think for something Light that won't bend and has good resale value

In Oz most of the full carbon foils are around the same price, except for MFC that are quite a bit more expensive.

I think Armstrong have the best quality atm & are very good value for the money.

If he can ride that no wonder he rips so hard when he gets on an Armie wing

Any News ? I hope they have a new tail wing too. The HS 232 is nice but something straight like the GO foil would be nice too !

Really or fake news they are only $800 more than an ali Naish set up. Cheaper than gofoil and signature carbon. Same as axis carbon setup.

That thing looks so loose in the vid as well as super efficient, interesting to see what gets released

Sold my Axis kit with 920 wing for 1350 US, bought the Armstrong 1550 kit plus a 1200 wing for 2600 US , so I'd say it's a pretty good upgrade, half the weight and top quality, looking forward to getting more skills...I still have a axis 900 to sell, 425 if anyone's interested

Yeah what's 800-1000 dollars in foil money? Kinda like funny money...My philosophy is buy the best gear possible when you really enjoy something...Sold my Axis kit with 920 wing for 1350 US, bought the Armstrong 1550 kit plus a 1200 wing for 2600 US , so I'd say it's a pretty good upgrade, half the weight and top quality, looking forward to getting more skills...I still have a axis 900 to sell, 425 if anyone's interested
