I was told November by a couple of dealers. I think there have been delays so expect more. A few of the Seabreeze users have moved to Moses

Hard to know how the Moses perform compared to others.

Or what size to get. (is the 790 good for light wind, or 873)

the 790's analog is the i76
the 873's is the i84

Heavier foilers (and some less experienced not so heavy) will lean towards the bigger wings. Also depends on how you define "light wind". Is that 10-15 or 6-12?

se-foil have you used the Moses? I am looking for two wings:
One equivalent of the Naish surf XL (which I think flies about the same as the i84, or maybe earlier). I use this in gusty 8-14knots on a reservoir with a 5.8.

A second wing for when the larger wing tops out and the wind is averaging 12knots+

Some videos of the Phantasm are starting to appear on Youtube.
Here is one of the team riders at Lake Mohave on a 112 mast!
Cannot be long now. Not sure when they will be in the UK though

Looks good for dodgy knee joints sailing that far above the chop, super smooth.
