I have a Moses 633 with a 95 aluminum mast and wanting a smaller board.
The Axis 110 is super thin and light , which is all good , however my question is will the heavy weight of the alu mast cause any issues with a very light weight board ?

It's funny you ask - I'm not a huge fan of the super lightweight pocket boards - they feel twitchy to me (boards under 4 pounds). Unless you have a super lightweight mast and foil.
But almost everyone who rides the super light boards boards rave about them and the first thing they say - "feel how light it is".
The Axis is 4.75 pounds - medium light.
I'm guessing it will be fine and your whole system will feel in balance.

I can for sure tell you that the Slingshot Dwarfcraft Micro (6.2) would be perfect.

I appreciate your feedback , I have been looking at the micro and also the North Scoop ,
which is actually quite a bit bigger in thickness and length than the Axis , I certain it won't feel twitchy.

Thanks again
