Yes posts #77 and #80 on that thread show what I've ended up with now.... same as in the Compass24 link above. I had to import from Italy at the time as no UK availability. For me well worth the cost to protect a 66yr old back, neck and shoulders.

Unless there is a reason for the bows being heavy that can be easily redressed?

I swear by a pair of resistance band handles that I clip to the front and makes lifting and manoeuvring so much easier.

An Excel 390. Reasonably heavy for a SIB. Launching on my own I could t do it without the lifting handles. Especially recovery.
