I suspect the hover glide stab is the difference in that last case. Have a friend with one who thought they were all metal. I think hes wrong... Wink
In all seriousness, if you are ok with the weight, why not add some tire weights to the fuse ? maybe fair them in a little if you like the effect?
A few ounces could make the difference.

What no one rides the MHL lift 150 or 170 ? It would be great to hear more about them .

Yes, someone does ride the Lift 150 and 170. In fact, Larry (Mosier Larry) tried the Moses 633 for a couple sessions and sold it quick. He could not tolerate this "float" issue, I guess. Now it's all Lift.

Actually the new hoverglide wings are significantly lighter. No noticeable difference in weight between the Slingshot 42 and the Moses 483. I think the difference is the Galaxy foil board. Since it's several pounds lighter than most flotation type boards, it floats up higher which is what I think helps drive the wing down.

Speaking of the SS 633, does anyone have a clue what the numbers signify on the SS wings?

Wingspan in cm. The GW line is wingspan in millimeters. 633 = 63.3 cm wingspan. Often rounded to make a more marketable name. For instance, the HG 68cm wing has a wingspan of 68.8 cm...
