Yes! Less glue was used during the build process. There were a few versions and the really light ones delaminated so be careful.

Yes, there was and it was considered legal for racing. But generally there was no title.
However, they weigh the same or more than if you bought a 2004-2007 GPR hull.
There was some Carbon Fiber hulls too... they were lighter still.

Yes there is such a thing. Do you have any pics of the inside of the hull?? I have SEEN one but sure wish I could find one for sale cheap.

It's a little more than less glue. They weigh around 100lb lighter than a new hull. They will not pass the new weight restrictions though. Thats why I don't run my two. There was around 20 produced. Most have been destroyed. The ones that delaminated were the four that were produced for specific riders at world finals a couple years back. None of those particular hulls lasted more than a couple races.

Can you tell us a little more about what to look for to identify a race hull?

Weight is the best way to tell. Most that are still out there have been so well disguised that they can be hard to identify. They did not come with a Hull Id although some have taken the ID off another salvage hull to cover these to which we are referring.
