Armstrong 4.5m Wing and Waist leash - both like new

Post by renegade »

I bought this wing and waist leash and haven't used it more than an hour.....I have Slingshot wings now so don't need this Armstrong 4.5m wing. The Armstrong Ultimate Wing Waist Leash is an awesome upgrade leash.

$475 for wing and waist leash.

I will be on the island April 18 - 20?

Tech Specs...this is the V1 Version.

Pre-Loaded Leading Edge Geometry
Sheer Web Ultra Stiff Handle Connection Points
Dyneema Sewn In Leach Line
Double Dacron Leading Edge Construction
Military Grade Window Material
Aramid Kevlar Internal and External Reinforced Load Zones and Leading Edge
Dimension Polyant Dacron Leading Edge and Strut Material (Germany)
Teijin T9669 D3 Triple Ripstop Canopy Material (Japan)
Two Inflate/Deflate Valves. One On the Leading Edge and One On the Strut
High Quality Bag Included

Pump is Included

4.5m Wing Weight: 5.4 lbs

Armstrong A Wing Wind Speed: 4.5m 12-28mph

Per Armstrong:

The Armstrong A Wing has the most power per size of any wing on the market. The 4.5m is comparable to most 5m to 5.5m wings of other brands.

Armstrong designed his wing so the optimal shape is when it is loaded up and under sail. This means that while riding, you get minimal flex in the frame and it is much more efficient.

When you touch down the wing tip while riding, the leading edge is so stiff that the wing just bounces off the water. No wing tip drag to wipe outs on the A Wing.

The high volume diameter of the wing tip and strut allow you to lean on the wing and use it as a kick stand while setting up for deep water starts on prone foilboard.

The leading edge has doubled up Dacron, and it is internally reinforced with Aramid Kevlar on all seams to keep this wing holding up for a long time.

Recommended inflate pressure is only 7.5 psi where as most other brands are 9-10 psi. Even at lower pressure, the Armstrong wing is significantly stiffer. Less pressure means less stress on the seams and a longer lasting wing.

We loved the dual inflate valves. They allow for proper pressure and quick deflation.

The windows are nice for improving your visibility on the water. They are small and in the right place. The material is a military tent window so it can handle all temperatures and lots of abuse with out failing.

The sheer webbing handles make for a super rigid connection point to the strut and leading edge to translate all energy into the wing. He also put in enough padding on the handles to make them plush and comfortable for lots of hours on the water.

Having the Y handles is a great option, and they make transitioning easier. There is no trailing edge flutter on this wing because of the Dyneema leach line that is sewn into the trailing edge.

Upwind performance and board speed with the A Wing is second to none.
Great hang time with the A Wing, and you get a lot of pop when you load it up because of the rigid frame.

Luffing this wing is awesome. It flags out and disappears when you are riding a wave.
High quality wing bag is included and the zippers are plastic so they won’t corrode.
