The Rocket seems to be able to carry quite a bit of weight. How much weight is the aft luggage designed to carry?

My EVO has a combined 280 pound passenger and baggage limit.
Total baggage 100 pounds
Total aft baggage (hat shelf) 15 pounds

That's an amazing load. Is it the same for the sport version?

It has to offset the big IO-540 up front!:)

The sport wing will have similar loads but each aircraft is different depending on equipment, interiors, etc. These are remarkable aircraft in terms of useful load, cruise speed and handling, as far as I know are no other aircraft in the same category. Keep in mind that I operate from a grass strip and none of the faster airplanes, lancair etc, would be suitable for that environment.
