Well, I never found what I was looking for. I contacted Appleman and Crumpton. Crumpton never replied me so I gave up on this option. Appleman was very fast in responding and a pleasure to speak with. Unfortunately I was not able to get a frame down to the weight I wanted, so I gave up on this option as well. The only frame I managed to identify which was light enough was Open Cycles. Unfortunately I have decided against an Open frame (at least for now) as some of the feedback I have received say that the frames are quite soft. So, - unfortunately - for now, I am still on my old Flash. With the combination of a relatively acceptable weight and reasonable stiffness of the Flash, for now this seems to be the best solution. I do however hope to find something lighter way forward.
