Light weight fiberglass

Post by backyardskier »

Looking for lightweight fiberglass. I know that you can get can buy light weight fiberglass from surfboards shops but apparently that kind of fiberglass isn't good for ski building because it isn't made to bend and flex. What would be a good 5oz and under fiberglass?

S glass or e glass that is the question. Then you can find anything.

E-Glass is the standard stuff I am using. You should be fine with it.
