    I would appreciate any help.

    The owner says this foil measures 36'' of wet strut length. I am just trying to find out as much as possible about it before I purchase it.

    Any recommendations, comments, or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    thanks in advance.

    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    Looks like an 04' or 05' LEX with full batwing setup. Those are great ski's, and hard to come by. You may want to upgrade components later, but this will certainly carry you for a couple years if you are a beginer-intermediate rider. Those tbars are top notch.

    Some version of an LE Tbar with LE bat wings and tower. See if you can get a picture of the top of the Tbar, and another of the bottom of the wings. I have a bolt thru LE which is a 34in bar, I'm going to guess that's what it is and he is measuring from the bottom of the board to the bottom of the keel for the extra 2in.

    There were 2 versions of the original LE/LEX. One had a fork where it connects to the seat tower like the original cast foils, the other was 1 in longer and had 3 bolts that held it to the seat tower. I have one of each, and can't say there is an advantage to the extra inch of Tbar, but the fork top sure is easy to take apat when you need to. Both have never needed any running they ride great the way they came, and will take any set of aftermarket wings. The rear LE bat is also a good rear wing especially if it has the little slot in he front where it meet the Tbar, looks like it does but I can't blow the pic up clear enough on my phone to be sure.

    As said above, if you have the ski pulli it out of the shock tower and takes a pic of the bolt thru. It looks like an Le38 but with pics it is hard to tell. I see you live in Raleigh/Durham.

    I do live in Raleigh/Durham.

    The guy said it is considered a 34'' foil with the Thru bolt

    How does that compare with a current LE?

    It's shorter.


    It is sort of like swinging a golf club, the longer Tbars give you some more height because of the length, but the ride is the same. When I move my wings to a longer Tbar they ride the same, but things take a little long to happen and I go a little higher. If given the choice between that and a launch (B39) I would choose that tbar everytime lighter weight, less drag and no tuning needed. Wings would a bigger upgrade for that than a longer Tbar. Everyone likes something different and there are plenty of choices so you shouldn't have a problem finding some you like.

    Roy, you really do want to start a fight, how bout we start a thread arguing over boats, that never gets done over here.
