    I wish I could be parts b_tch and make the Parker Invasion! Have a great time! Warm water, crazy friends and new foiling gear... that is ideal. Hmmm, I own lots of guns too!

    10 lbs 6 3/8 oz on my scale. Maybe I should have weighed it in grams? Scale is accurate to 1 gram but rounds oz to eighths. The fuselage is beautiful. The flare into the front wing mounting surface is a cool solution for support and reduces interference drag at the intersection of fuselage body and wing surface. Must have required some extra cnc time for sure. I can't wait to try it out.

    The t bar in the photos was straight from USA Metal Polishing and needs a good cleaning and hand polish. It's not mine so I left it as I got it.

    My Fuse-40 weighed in at 10 pounds 5.25 ounces. My Fuse-39 was under 10 pounds at: 9 pounds and 14.5 ounces. T-bars will tend to vary in weight by a few ounce from one to next. N2Orbit being able to build and sell a high quility 40" inch, 7000 series aluminum T-bar that weighs in under 10.5 pounds(10pounds 8 ounces) for hundreds less less than 2K is an impressive value. As for the ano, the black always looks good from Jeronimo's ano guy but will look incredible after hand polishing the T-bar with aluminum polish and a microfiber cloth. Don't forget to Thank Jeronimo for spending his time dropping off and picking up parts from the ano shop. Jeronimo will go above and beyond to keep us foilers happy and doesn't mark up or charge a dime extra for his time spent getting our stuff anodized. Thank You Jeronimo, You Rock!

    You would have to add another grand to the price! Greg and I are trying to make high end gear more affordable to the masses. My Fuse-40's strut thickness is so minimal already it would have nothing left if I deep drilled out a full pound and a half of weight. I doubt anyone is removing that much material but I have been wrong before. I just don't add the extra weight in the first place so that I don't have to charge the customer more to machine it away. Thinner strut=less wetted surface area=less drag. Makes sense to me.

    Tbar looks cool! It looks like it actually has angles, fat at front and then diminishing down the trailing edge. Love to see how it rides......may have to join you guys in mission bay after work one of these days Kelson!!! That red wing looks cool too.....is that the XXX2 ???

    I'm pretty sure that is a regular xxx. The lighting just highlights the shape. Paul, You should have tried that xxx2 when it was at jeronimo's!

    I do wish I had a better scale for weighing the t bar. I'm not sure how accurate it is with such a long piece. I had to center it on the balance point to get a good reading. Sure feels nice and balanced compared to my b39 with the big _ss fuselage. Will be interesting to swing it around.

    No the red wing is not a XXX2, just a plain "old faithful" XXX
