Okay guys, first of all, i now know so much more about pyramids - thanks!
To keep it all real: I started with a mission: "Beat the Huppa HP in weight!"
Well this is definitely possible, but i'm not so sure about the compromises i have to make to make this happen.
Still, keeping it real, a fair comparison to the Huppa HP Fly would be to compare it to another fly in the same material. In the most obvious case, that would be the MLD Duomid Sil:
My HP fly weighs 405 g (that's with all the guylines i need)
The MLD Sil Duomid weight with guylines (guesstimated from http://blogpackinglight.wordpress.com/2011/05/30/duomid-and-oookworks-inner/) weighs 585 g
HP Pegs: I use 6 DAC V poles at 11g, makes 66 g in total (could easily be lower)
Duomid Pegs: well, i'll (guesstimate again, this time from Rogers Webpage)...let's say 100 g total.
Pole Jack: 22 g
HP 405 + 66 = 471 g
Duomid: 585 + 100 + 22 = 707 g
On to the Inners...
HP: 450 g
Dumid: well, this is very personal, but i would say that a realistic comparison would be the Chikara PU edition from Oookworks at 380g
So totals thus far:
HP: 471 + 450 = 921 g
Duomid: 707 + 1087 g.
This is the most direct comparison in my view.
Now on to the tricky part...the trekking poles/tent poles
Let's say i was going to use a regular trekking pole at around 200 g (this i pretty low)
The HP Poles are 348 g
The new total..:
HP: 921 + 348 = 1269 g
Duomid: 1087+ 200 = 1287 g
But if i were to not include the trekking pole in the weight it would come to:
1269 g vs 1087 g : 182 g in favor of the DuoMid
Well...that's not a big saving...hmmm
My conclusion thus far:
I would have to buy cuben fibre to really feel the difference!
And this is not going to happen until i have seen a Duomid in real life - new mission...
