Has anybody seen or even tried the MFC Hydro?
I saw they offer a 1600 wing now as their biggest, announcing a weight of only 3,5 kg.
I'm happily using a Slingshot Infinity 84 atm, but it's soooo heavy, about 6,5 kg.
So the MFC 1600 is tempting
But I also wonder if the lift of the MFC 1600 could match the Infinity 84 or a GF Maliko 200, both around 2000 sqcm.
The MFC 1600 seems more like the Infinity 76 or GF Iwa.

I've seen the 1075 & 1250 beautiful foils. They are similar in size to the Nalu & Kai so they are small. Mates of mine have ridden them and a couple have ordered them. These guys rip on them and are top level riders. These are not designed for a Sup but the 1600 is getting closer to IWA size so you could Sup that but had no feedback on it yet. When you hold them in your hands they are a work of art. Big ticket item though $$$.

Don't expect these wings to have low speed lift they are the reverse , you need to pump , turn & drive to get your speed but once you have that , the flow is amazing and they just keep accelerating . Just watch Kai on his , the perfect example hardly ever travelling in just a straight line and constantly driving the foil.

MFC is so light ...I Had mfc & Moses next to each other and the mfc was lighter and looks more refined ..

I just took the Moses out for a ride and I'm frothing //..

The Moses felt like on rails ... Ive never had confidence to carve that hard and did it with easy on the Moses .. But what Evers making it do that I have no idea ....

Can only imagine what the mfc will do

I also had a look at the Moses, they look promising.
With their heritage in kitefoil designs I guess they could also do fine Supfoils.
Which wing did you ride?

There's a carbon fiber fuselage and carbon fiber mast compatible with the Slingshot Hoverglide foils coming out next season.

New Infinity 65 & Infinity 94 wings as well

Also I heard they are bringing completely new entirely carbon fiber foil range to suit kite / wake / surf / sup / windsurf

Slingshots Ghost Wisper full carbon Kite and Windfoils are just relabeled Moses foils. So maybe they do this with their Supfoils too.

Infinity WIng shape (which is used in surf / wind / sup foils ) was actually shared FROM Slingshot to Moses.

Slingshot have a new factory for their new designed full carbon production next season.
