Saw it today, longer and slightly wider than the normal reload, looked like an absolute weapon, 10kgs lighter, when i am a bit older and have some money i am getting one! First 10 were for $5000 i was told 5 were sold before saturday, then goes up $1k, hopefully the price will come down eventually.... prototype looked quite rough so might even be better to wait until any kinks are sorted out. Pictures on the viking fb page i think

Scratching my head at the price Stern Smile.  You could carry less gear (and lets face it, we are all guilty of taking stuff we don't need), or lose a couple of kg and still get the same benefit.

10kg lighter would be good for car topping. We’re not all built like the big guy from Big Angry Fish!

Took me 10 years to go from a $500 Swing to a $1500 PF400 😁Way out of my budget but looks very nice.
My shoulders ache so no heavy lifting. Sliding the PF400 into the van is ok.
I reckon a carbon fibre 4m long Reload shape would be a winner, get it down to 15kgs πŸ˜‚

That's what I used to say about the Swing Muppet πŸ˜‰ Actually chuck a transducer scupper and centre storage on a Swing and would have been perfect.
