I've got 3 layups now. All my raw fuse balance points have been shifted forward since I started adding more fiber to nose portion since everybody was having to add lead (everything after serial #: DLG1054). The raw fuses all balance ahead of 115 mm from the LE since this change. The Economy Plus balance point is less than 108mm from the LE.

Economy weighs 51 grams with the lead to balance at 80mm (44.5 grams raw)
Economy Plus weighs 48.5 grams at 80 mm (44.5 raw - stiffer layup, higher hoop strength than economy)
UL weighs 41.5 g at 80mm (38.5 raw - stiffest layup)
