Combination Walter, I was told root is Icon and then tweaked from there out. I am guessing about mid 70's in weight.

Walter;
Marc has it! Icon center and then "special"....

Cost is 1000-1200 depending on layup.. glass, d-box, or carbon..
I am loving mine, just getting to know it. There are about 6 or 7 in So. Cal, and all reports are good!

I saw three in PHX and I would agree, kindof made me a bit envious. My Insanities are being chased!
