We were lifting dozens of these into overhead racks last week and when we got up to the 158's we were busting up at how light they were. Not sure what they did this year to get that dramatic of a change (the spec is very similar), but yeah, it is noticable and it is not limited to the Rook (the Magnum is a huge wide model and is also unbelievably light for its proportions) . I spent a magic day on the new Rook 156 at T-line this summer. If you like like flat, this is a must-demo board.
