I have ridden Cliff Woodman's several times, and it is a great ride, although Cliff has FT front wing on his and GY rear wing. If you get it a good price, it will be a great foil for you.

I have ridden Cliff's GY front wing and it is nice too.

I ended up getting it! But does anyone with a G38 have preferences in set up.eg Have you Cinched out ? or Have you made tower modifications you like? or Made other improvements you could recommend? I have both stock wings forward with no shim.I ride with a lot of foot pressure to keep it down. I swapped to an extra thick seat pad to soften landings but since it goes quite a bit higher than my old cast foil my back is still kinda sore. But I like it.

CarlSweet dude! If you need to pull some lift out of it you can move your butt forward on the seat or add some shim to the rear of the rear wing.

If this is old news to you, my bad, just trying to help.:smile:

correct me if I'm wrong Jay, but isn't the shim go at the back of the rear wing to take lift out?? front of the rear wing to increase lift??
