Carbon and non carbon are the same weight - 15,5 lbs. Amazing foil sup.
Donít waste money on carbon - itís more fragile than classical construction.
Addicted to foiling at the moment.

Interestingly enough my classic construction JL 6í5 came in at 16.5lbs.

That info came right from the JL shop on Maui. Canít imaging they were trying to mislead anyone. I went and bought that board this weekend, under the same impression as you. Picked it up and was like this more than 15 lbs. Carbon is 15.5
At any rate, this thing paddles amazing! No more missed waves! Canít believe how straight it stays when trying dead starts in the chop.
