In a quest to go light I went around today to local shops and here are some real world weights of boards, as much as I love my Venture the time has come to move on to something lighter and a bit softer hopefully as well. All weights with just Chinese/Karakoram Clips..

Thoughts? Set-ups?

Venture Zephyr 165 4610g 10.16lbs
Jones Solution 161 (2014) 3400g 7.49lbs
Jones Solution 161 (2015) 3100g 6.83lbs
Jones Solution 164 (2014) 3680g 8.11lbs
Prior Backcountry 161 Regular Const 3410g 7.51lbs
Prior Backcountry 161 XTC Const 2940g 6.48lbs
Prior Khyber 160 Regular Const 3425g 7.55lbs
Arbor Abacus 164 3160g 6.96lbs
K2 Ultra Split 161 3270g 7.2lbs


I'll stop by another shop in the next few days and get the weights on Rome, Voile, Lib, NS and next years Nitros. (Milo has all the next year Nitros on the floor as of a few weeks ago)

My 167X Never Summer Prospector is about 8.5 lbs. It is a big, wide board, so I am very happy with this weight. The Phantom Pho Bindings along with TLT6 CL boots saves about 1 lb per foot vs most soft systems.
The Prospector is also riding great so far, only powder days so far, and it rips that.
