Wonder what is the real gain in brushing/sanding boards to let the outer layer show through the painting: 200 grams? Personally I find some models really ugly. I would also prefer at thicker, more resilient shell. I like a board to be light but when you make a ding each time you pull it out of the bag, well... it sucks. Maybe honeycomb sandwich will make its great return as carbon becomes unaffordable. My Fanatic Ultra Rat (108L) was ~8 kg naked and rock solid twenty years ago.
