This is Armstrong’s first pump-specific foil. Designed specifically for ultimate efficiency and distance covered.

The highly-anticipated MA series sits right in the middle of Armstrong's HA & HS wings. Designed for the best of both worlds this wing is made for more of a surf feel, with a slower stall speed than the HA but with more glide & efficiency than the HS.

In this test, I’m going to review both these MA wings along with the High Performance 655 mast. I’ll also go into a fair bit of detail as to the different on the different tails that I paired with the two wings.

Armstrong has gone from strength to strength and clearly take it seriously when they release new equipment. I have no doubt that R&D is done exceptionally carefully, so that they release only the highest quality products. That’s why you don’t see gear released yearly from them, only when a genuine technological update is needed. With that in mind, getting the...

The attention to detail with all Armstrong gear is next level, and this board is no different. There has clearly been a lot of time put into the development of this board to create many unique and effective features.
