Ahhh the Poors are here, I think a CF skid plate is a great idea, I replaced all the bolt on my rig with 18k gold plated bolts. I don't use a skid plate, they are like cases for a phone. If i smash up a part, I just buy a whole new rig and leave the old damaged one.

Weight of the rig alone would crush the CF skid if it were to hit hard on a rock. That would also require you to get a new skid every time it gets crushed. If the first purchase isn't already expensive, the second or third would kill the pocketbook.

Aluminum would be the next best bet for weight savings. Titanium would also be very expensive but tough!
