Thanks much for the excellent input. I really helps. What I mean by “light” is anything lighter than my 60" 50 year Old Towns. They’re still in great shape and were fine for the Boomaloom, but the Jensen deserves more. Somewhere in the ballpark of 20 oz would probably be fine for my intentions which at this time are nothing more than pleasure, no racing, and I'm a bit of a cheap skate.

Good advice on the factory 2nds. Is that something one has to call the factory on?

Wow, I lose 8.5 oz when I clip my nails! I’m 67 and my serious racing days are probably behind me (former motocross) so I don’t need to go to extremes, but then again, it’s always nice to feel like one has the best that is offered. I guess if I found a good deal on a real “light” one there is no limit to what I would be talked into. I’m weak when it comes to making deals.
Good advice on the Wenonah Quetico. Thanks.
