Surely a weight weenie would never put 3-5 layers of that heavy lacquer on!!

Take a couple off and save even more weight!! :D

Why don't you make some barends out of spaghetti? It is light, stiff, and has about the same breaking predictability as cheap carbon!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
