note No experience with it, but the weight difference in the Strike is because the bladders are urethane instead of pvc.

Which also accounts for the cost difference. Not only is the urethane lighter, but it doesn't have the tendency to develop pinhole leaks with age, although the new pvc's seemed to have that problem much better controlled. The strike does have a better hull design for flat water and the solo version is supposed to be as fast as the old Force XL, which was about as fast an inflatable as you could find.
