Re: Foil on Craigs List in ATL

It's mine. https://windsportatlanta.com/content/fs-starboard-gt-alu-foil-2119

In my completely biased opinion, it's good. Same wing as the carbon GT and the teamset. This year's team set I think also comes with the 1000cm wing for light wind. Basically the GT but you save a bunch by having a shorter aluminum mast. You can add the 95 cm fuselage which is reputed to be a bit more stable but this flies quite well as is. The 75 cm mast is easy to learn on and great for anyone spending a lot of time in shallower water like Hatteras or FL. A new one is $500 more and really not in much better shape. It's fast enough to be scary powered up but has much better range than I anticipated. Also, light air performance is better than might be expected because the wing is so efficient.If I hadn't of plunked down for the Tillo, I was going to get a longer mast and the 95cm fuse and keep it.

btw, you made a good choice to pass on today. It would have been frustrating as it became very off and on. I used the AFS85 and Naish 5.4 and was pretty happy most of the time but it really lightened up towards the end and I struggled to get off the water.

Lol Right, wth was I thinking? Maybe I could change the text to read: "Vintage foil, original cost $1199, price reduced to $1059. Open to trades for broken iPhones, jet skis and used athletic gear. Send me your certified check for twice the amount and I'll refund you the difference."
