Hello! I know this is YEARS after the original post, but was very informative (I was gobsmacked when I found out how the yanks calculate weight) but...well, am doing the Ripstop Search as a beginner SO...things have, as always, moved on. Found a few oldies..Chikara- nice. AirX700, yes, heavy, but, weirdly, the flo-green ACTUALLY fluoresces. Bit 'plasticy', too. Some unnamed 38g that actually weighs 46g, crispy tho, AirX500, silvery, crispy, nice. Some Chinese from 9KM. Bit soft, but not unreasonable, slinky and weighed what it said- 42-43g psm. Anyone else tried them? I ask cos they also have Icarex PC20 (35g). Wanted to go for Skytex27, but buying anything from Germany has become a no-no, post bloody Brexit, dammit! I didn't vote for it...on a tight budget, appreciate any input. Oh, thanks to Ian Newham for a very clearl, helpful bridle tutorial. Love the turntable analogy. L.
