It appears that the 2018 Lift classic 110 foil has a higher aspect ratio than the 2018 slingshot ghost whisper 101. As such the Lift seems to be more stable and represents possibly an easier migration path from slingshots aluminium hoverglide nf set up.

Wondering if anyone could comment and provide some guidance.

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm kinda in the same boat as you. I currently ride the SS HG and am considering an upgrade as well. But from what I have heard, it sounds like the SS GW 91 would be a better comparison to the Lift 110. And to be clear, I have no experience riding either and doubt any others have to. I say you buy both and write us up a review!

Good point on the SS GW 91. However, just from looking at the pics, it appears the aspect ratio is higher even than Lift 110. I have seen some people going back to Lift 110 after trying for years on higher aspect foils. I am just not sure if the new SS foils are similar to those high aspect foils people migrated away from. And yes it would be great to be able to try or buy all. In the meantime maybe someone did and wouldn't mind sharing some feedback.

Here's a review of the Moses 91 foil which is similar to SS GW 91

The Lift foils are great - I've ridden the 110, 150, and 170 of the current line up. I really like the 150 and 170 - light, strong, super stable, low takeoff speed, but they still go damn fast. I haven't ridden the GW so I can't comment on that one.
