...I love Opie's signatureI am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!
That stated, I've been using a GT UL all winter that I have down to 10.55 oz with whoopies. I'd been eyeing a BB in place of my DJ for summer outings and came across a SL 1.7 (20.5 oz). I liked it so much I picked up a DL 1.1 (24 oz) the next week!
All those weights are with whoopies and without my Dutch Buckle huggers, so it is consistant.
Anyway, I'm not a gram weenie, but I'm looking at a 10 - 14 oz swing there. I'm willing to take that for the comfort I've received from the BB. However, if I can get similar comfort out of the Traveler for winter use I'm looking at a difference of 6 - 9 over my current winter setup. I certainly don't need the netting in the winter.
Question is, how much a difference does that footbox make and is it worth the roughly 4 oz?
I look forward to pages of suggestions!
