    Lightweight MM tents

    I need to replace my old 'Sup'air' (blue cloche thing)which is a single skin lightweight MM tent.
    it weighs around 780g
    Looking at the modern stuff this still seems quite light.
    most of the modern tents are double skinned. what is there on the market that would be a great MM tent weighing in at 780g or less?
    thanks

    budget?
    The Terra Nova elite (silver ones) are about 700. grams and pounds.
    I think the photon is the next lightest (800g or so), then the competition (around 950g).
    (these are all 1.5-man tent weights)

    I'm not particularly au fait with other options. I got a TN Comp 1 off ebay for about 220 (rrp 300) as it seemed like a good think to have and a good compromise for both MMs and general gadding about.

    I got a a Photon 1 from Ebay about 200. It's great but the 1g pegs are silly. The shiny condom (Laser Pulsar) are gaining popularity. But it's alot of money (999) to save 250g!

    Telemark 2 here, the space is quite pleasant compared to my old TNF Mountain Marathon.
