You're never too far from habitation on the SWCP, so you maybe don't need to cart as much food about.
I think the cheap Laser Comps have sold out now. Think of the money you've saved...
They are GF. I put the pole in a vice just gripping it tight enough to stop it moving but no more. I had only the wall thickness above the vice jaw so that I would not cut into the elastic, then used a junior hacksaw to cut down to the vice jaw. I then turned te pole slightly and cut again until I got back to where I started. Once the cut off piece is floating freely along the elastic it can be gently crushed and the bits removed.
Instead of the solo i'd have gone for one of the original green Tiger Paws tents, a bit heavier but so much easier to live with and you'd be able to pick one up for £30 i guess, seeing as two went on here recently for £25 each.
I've had a solo but it immediately struck me that i'd never use it so i sold it, you're a long time dead, so bugger living in a coffin whilst alive.

Why the lantern?
A head torch can do the same job and easier to pack. Your carrying it anyway.
Re. the Powerbee, if your taking a spare battery, do you need it for only 3 days?
As for sleeping bag, If I could I'd take something better than a Tesco's one.
Shaving oil, razor and mirror I'd dump. For three days why bother.
Chuck all the electrics.
Ditch most of the toiletries. I would take some of that sanitiser gel stuff and thats it. And bog roll..
Realistically though I doubt you will hack off enough to make any real difference.
Doubt you would notice a kilo even and that won't go without some serious pruning and spending.
OP didn't come across as wanting to do in one go.
The only things I might want to change would be the sleeping bag and maybe the tent.
