Good bit of wind.......but they seem in displacement mode downwind. How much do they weigh?

 

Nice looking group of people...having fun.

Holy cow that rig is tiny. 

A hard chined melges with half the sail and twice the weight? It was blowing out there in that video. 

Of course if it's cheap enough, may just make sense. Otherwise just buy a J80 and go faster...

I think that you're looking at kg to lbs.  According to the specs, the MX700 is four kg heavier...i.e. the same.  Less sail area for sure but not half.
