    Maybe it is because you didn't answer the OP question and just started spouting your opinion as if it was fact. And if you compare your last post with your first post you qualify your initial statement, basically stating your initial comment was crap as well.

    Alright it’s just misinterpretation then. I’m not trying to sound like a troll. I certainly accept that there are other ways to skin a cat.

    I’ll rephrase my statement by saying that for ME, personally I find that a steel 232 15l is not optimal for me.

    @BurhanMuntasser show some respect.

    I meant to say, you could say something like this:

    “I do not know what’s the weight adjustment to do. But have you thought that 15l are usually not great for trim/balance/whatever.

    From my experience, I am better off using a twin 12l, this is usually a better balanced configuration due to (explain why)”

    That means the same thing but you would explain your position and that would let other people continue to discuss. You still say that 15l isn’t the way to go but since you explained your reasoning it sounds more like a discussion as people can reply/agree/disagree.

    Just my two cents and feel free to disagree/correct me (as always) !
