Default Weight for Sheeting a Wing

I have a Cadence kit that I'm about to start the build on. The last time I sheeted a wing was on a 39% Dalton Extra 300 where I believe I stacked around 400 lbs. of weight on the wing panels if I remember correctly.

How much weight would be good for sheeting the wings on the Cadence when using polyurethane glue?

I used 150 pounds, and it worked just fine.

Vacuum bagging is an option also. You only need enough weight to make sure everything is bedded properly then the vacuum takes over. 5 inches of vacuum is all you need so you don't need a super expensive setup. I heard some will use a modified air pump for a fish tank.
