    Light and coil sprung?

    Does anyone have suggestions for a fork that has coils and is also light? Here are some current specs:

    On One Summer Season
    130mm Manitou Super Splice (circa 2005) 4.5#

    I am working on lightening the bike. I love the frame and the slack angles, but first built it too heavy. I ride it mostly heavy XC, but make a few trips to the NC mountains each year where I especially love it down hill. I have lightened the wheelset (noticable difference) and done other smaller items seatpost, saddle, cassette (it was time anyway). Looking at bars and a few other areas as well.

    I actually like the fork I have. Simple, minimal adjustment, works every time. Just wondering if anyone knows of another coil sprung fork that is lighter, perhaps in the 130-150mm range. Don't want to go down in size, willing to go up a bit.

    Thanks,

    How about the Marzocchi 44 RC3 Ti?
    It is slightly lighter that the Rockshox Sektor coil.
    I am actually about to get one of those two but I can't decide which one to get...
