I've looked for but cannot find the expected weight for the sprits on the core sound 17.   When I did the conversion to the new sail plan, I had to make a new spar for the main sprit.  I made it out of fir and now am wondering whether it is too heavy.  It seems heavy anyway. Anybody ever weighed theirs?  Mine weighs 5 lbs 12 oz.

Interesting question, I never even thought about it.  My Lapwing main sprit weighs 4.3# with blocks and chafe gear.  It is probably a tad shorter than a CS17. I interpret this to mean mine is still a bit lighter when corrected for length. Mine is DF.
