Spark burner vs burton diode

Tired of being let down by my fragile burton diodes I decided to get some solid pucks so I can use sparks on solid boards aswell. I was surprised to see the following weights.

diode


burner with ss pin


I can still take more weight out of the puck without compromising its strength





So for only 100 grams more than the diodes I have bindings I can trust and saved 1.8kg in my luggage when travelling!

with aluminum pins even lighter...also save the diode ratchets and straps will fit right on the burners for spares

Shouldn't that say 100g more? One was 0.9 Kg and the other 1.0 Kg right?

X2 which is 200 g or about half a pound... I've been lucky with the diodes and have had no issues yet. Ruined a few boards this season but no bindings!

if you wanna go super weight-weenie you can start drilling holes in your spark plates to lose even more weight.
