I just don't know which ones. I am not a racer, but I enjoy speed. Sometimes I would like to take my girl friend out for a spin, but she feels uncomfortable to sit so low. I used to have old H18 Magnum, where you had a nice comfortable "seats" so she got used to that. Now I'm thinking about the "comfort" model, but I'm a bit worryed about the weight. Has anyone tryed both Race and Comfort model wings, who could tell me are the comfy ones worth of loosing money and weight or should I just take the Race-ones and nod my shoulders that I tryed...?

I have the comfort wings. They come up enough that they're comfortable, but they are super easy to get in and out of the trap on. The smaller wings are more like a rail that just gets you out another foot. I haven't seen these but I don't think you'd want to sit on them for very long. My biggest complaint with the standard style wings is that you have to climb up on them then out onto the wire when tacking.

I stopped trapping out with the chute up too. It's nice with the comfort wings you can sit back where the rudders are because they extend past the rear beam and still get a bit more leverage.

Carl, are those wind generators in the background of the first pick?

Looks like some nice wind that day!

Yep. Wind farms are all over the place out here.
