Assuming no slight of the hand, now that is light...
The gauntlet has been thrown down. The contenders: Fenn Elite Carbon Double (the benchmark?), Stellar S2E (crazy light), Custom Kayaks Apex, and the new Epic V10 Doubl... Gunfight at the OK Corral? Cannot wait...

"Nice? It's the only thing," said the Water Rat, solemnly, as he leaned forward for his stroke. "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Sleight.

Mind you, even if you were slight of hand, you would be able to hold this ski overhead.

Past skis: Spirit PRS, EpicV10Sport Performance, Epic V10 Elite, Stellar SES Advantage. Current skis: Fenn Elite Spark, Fenn Swordfish vacuum. Custom Horizon, Epic V7

Laughing... Very good! Touche (minus the accent-or perhaps more reflective of my editing skills, 'tush.'). ;) Okay, I'll bite; that's a light craft. I thought the Stellar was feathery...

Although if it turns into a slide of hands, such a slight ski may not take the tumble very well.

(I had one on sharp rocks today, but the old heavy fiberglass construction didn't mind that at all).

Is that simply a cardboard cutout, hence the weight? I want to see Oscar and Glickman get into it to see if it floats...

Fenn Swordfish and Epic Midwing.

Past skis include Stellar SR and SEL, KC Zeplin, Think EVO, and in-between version of Epic V8 Ultra. Jantex Gamma is my sword of pain..though my elbow may force me to a smaller blade now. :-(

You've all been conned. The Goedhals is a beast. 7ft4, 20 inch arms and he's holding the club level ski (with his bad arm).

[Rumour has it the bikini model for the shoot (Jolandi Visser) is lying in the footwell - she lost her balance when he lifted the ski. Asked for comment afterwards she said 'Vat wos freaky']

I do believe maybe it was Worlds Lightest Double Ski yet but I do not believe "Worlds Fastest Double Ski".All we need to have is a Strongest with Lightest Double ski and about Fastest ski it will show us in a race. :)

I paddle the first out of the mould carbonology double ski (it weighs 26kg not like the 16kg one jason is holding - though my partner can also hold it in one hand but then he reps 210kg bench press!), My Partner is 125 kg and I am 93 kg and we do a 10 km club dice in 48 minutes on flat water. In the rough stuff it is even better.

Great boat no matter what you or the ski weighs!

The 26 kg one is a glass, vynelester vacummed ski with carbon re enforcing. Being the first out - it was a bit of test bed hence I over enginered the layup.

The light ski is a carbon, epoxy vacuumed ski with a foam/airex core.

Thanks! I knew the light skis used to made with Honeycomb core while the heavier skis probably made with either Soric core or Upic core,or maybe Corecork ,is that right? could you please send me the link so we could know more about it.

Just a note that the 26kg ski was not built at Carbonology-Sport.
You did build yourself a very good quatily ski though Anton, to be expected from a guru like you..

Our Entry construction is a Glass Epoxy Vacuum ski and weighs 22,5-23,5kg.
We then have a hybrid construction, a full carbon construction and then the 15-16kg construction that Jason is holding. (that one is 15kg, but our retailed ones are just under 16kg)

What we find interesting though is that over the past couple of years it has become extremely difficult (in SA) to feature in a race unless you are in a carbon ski as you just could not be competitive at the weights the glass skis were being built.

Both the Perth Doctor and the Cape Point was won on our Glass Epoxy Skis. For now, we are really happy with this as you can be competitve in a less costly ski.

The trend will however not last. As soon as the majority of guys are racing in our 17kg Carbon construction, you will once more be at a disadvantage in your 23kg glass ski.
