Maybe this? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yipPQ-oi406DSem8X4GGYzTTMXXDGd_qghmhpFTjJ-0/edit#gid=0 Yes, that's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much!

### Re: PICTURES, SCORES, VIDEOS!!!

Hey, I saw a few people talk about a formula that can calculate your score that Balsa Man (may he rest in peace) posted or mentioned? I've gone through the forum and can't seem to find it...
Thanks!

### Re: Double the wood, half the weight!!!????

The key is in finding sticks that are both very light and very stiff... Then add to this, very straight. These are very rare... You may need to go through a hundred pieces just to find 2 or 3 that meet this criteria. This is just for the columns... We will order several ultra light sticks, then cut...

### Re: Double the wood, half the weight!!!????

do you have a pic of your tower and the competitions? The SUPER light balsa from specialized is very very challenging to work with. I don't think it would be worth attempting. how much do your towers weigh? what about glue, how much of your weight is glue? I already do make my towers from specializ...

### Re: Double the wood, half the weight!!!????

What are you looking for? sheets or sticks? I might have some that I can spare.

### Re: Remembering Len Joeris (Balsa Man)

We are in shock. Everyone on our team venerated Len Joeris, and he was a greater help to our team than we could ever say, so thank you so much. Rest in Peace, we'll miss the special presence he brought to our community. His passing will leave a hole in the towers community, and I can't stress enough...

### Double the wood, half the weight!!!????

Yoooo Anyone know where to buy the ULTRA LIGHT wood? Before you ask, yes I have tried SIG, National, Specialized, Amazon, and I'm checking out f1d.biz. But somehow, those that are winning have wayyyy more wood on their tower than I do, and are half the weight. What the phlorque am I missing? I'm jus...
