you must state board thickness - it is most important variable - without it info about laminate is meaningless. Thicker the board the less laminate and vice versa.
the board is 25mm.

The 650g is very heavy. With 80kg core you should get away with 200g x 2, with an extra layer top and bottom at rear 1/2. You can choose to add glass on top as sanding / impact protection, but not necessary. I'm talking about 120cm or under no straps.

Yes the 650g is heavy but one layer bam done and its also very cost effective. Your suggestion is 3x200 in half the board so not much to saved there after you fair in the steps between the 2 and 3 layer parts. Cosmetics with the 650 is really nice too if you get it all down perfect. I would also say that 200g waaay easier to work with. I have done a ton of different boards over the years so can make the 650 work. Its just difficult on the rails. The main body of the board is easy. If I really was going to try and make some money on this I would probably go with a abs rail and press like a TT.

This is how the bottom turned out. Going to do the top today I hope. It's quite cold here so need to get the workshop up to temp first!

Cheers for all the advice.
