    If I am correct about Shug saying in his video that his Blackbird is a 1.1 single with his weight at 185# would confirm that WBG uses a conservation weight rating from the previously stated rating of a 1.1 double rated at 300# and a 1.1 single at half the rating of a double. As any good engineering safety margin ought to be. Shug thanks for the input.

    most my reccomendations are based on comfort, while the single 1.1 will hold one weight, it start to stretch quite a bit over 150 or so, causing less flatness and more shoulder squeeze. if you're in the 150-200 range and want a single, the single 1.7 will stretch considerably less for a relativly small weight penalty. the double 1.1 will stretch even less than the single 1.7 and has the pad pocket option
