    WBBB 1.7SL weight question

    Anyone know the weight of a WBBB 1.7 SL without a suspension? I'll be adding DIY whoopies.

    That is the line/strap suspension weight. I'm curious about the weight minus the suspension.

    My doouble 1.1 is about 21 with Dynaglide whoopies if that helps with comparison.
    was about 22+ with amsteel.whoopies. that doesnt include treestraps/toggles

    I think.I figure around 17-18 for the 1.7sl Im ordering.

    WBBB weights without suspension

    I just yesterday traded emails with Brandon where I asked this question. Here is his exact reply:

    So with the 1.7 SL with webbing weights 25 oz. Minus the 6 oz suspension, this comes to a whopping 19 oz.

    Should not be hard to do the math on the others if desired.
