Because of the video of Titouan I posted a week ago, I’m having a bit of love affair with the foil wing… three session in the last 5 days. Two with a Duotone wing provided by HST and one with the F1 of Titouan. Can’t really do a complete and competent review, but I can tell the best two features of both, respectively: it’s very nice to have a boom where you can do micro-adjustments of the hands position and it’s very nice to have a wing that is extremely light. Unfortunately both of them are bad for my trigger finger, so I’m afraid the love affair will have to stop until I – somehow – heal. So I took action and called the doctor to discuss surgery, she hasn’t called me back yet, but that was a first step towards it.
Here’s a video filmed by Gofoil that shows Alan Cadiz on a Duotone. Check the smoothness of the transitions and look where he places his hands in them and imagine how much less comfortable it would be to grab handles left and right instead of just sliding your hands on the boom.
