Perhaps you will have s hot at the great White

But even if you don't, from your quote above, how on earth do they get the desired "feel and control" out of such a thin beam?

I can buy the notion that the thinner beam promotes feel, gobs of flexy sexy feel, but when they go as thin as 15mm or 17mm how on earth is control maintained? Is this to do with the layup or again the Xenecore throughout? I would think at these beam width you'd be looking at something strong as a noodle, hence loss of control.
