I have to say that the new Oregon nk pro bar "speedcut" has been really good, the saw is clearly lighter with this. For example, a 15" TXLB is around 5.3oz  lighter than the Husqvarna standart / oregon pro lite 16".
The warranty is also good (at least here)  if the bonding fails then i get a new one.

Very good price / quality.

  I think Stihl has the best selection of lightweight bars on the market, nice and stiff too.

BTW I think I built the worlds first functional lightweight bar 32yrs ago way back in 1983.  :D
I copied the idea off old Mac designs from the 1950's but made it functional by filling the cutout holes with JB Weld and aluminium plates
Still holding fine today.

Kevin,
I knew I posted my homemade bikesaw light weight bar a while ago on this thread so I went back to make sure.
It was my own photo in my gallery over at Forestry Forum and look what they did.
I also found out they deleted my whole amateur chainsaw competitions thread.Being sponsored by my Husqvarna dealer and lots of videos must have upset their big sponsor...

Anyways here's that picture I took again of my 36 year old lightweight 18" fat belly bar with big roller nose, 2.5 lbs.

Making a living with a saw since age 16.

That ff site went to that sponsor crap to make money off it. So they started getting real touchy on post.  Now blocking your pics  :D.  So fubarr them ;)

Some good bar info that redbull did on a bunch of different bars.

I was figuring the oregon powermatch 050 bar to be 1-2 ounce more then the 058. Was right there on used one. I must have sold the new PM ones I had and the copied forester branded one too.  24"

Weighed in ounces, must have hit wrong button in past.
