It's not much more than a mark from a colored magic marker on the pop top looking down, but there is enough left to know my current one is a blue. Google Leafield, and you will discover there is a wide range, and yes, brown is 2.5#.
I could see where a shop where the boats were taking a lot of hits might want a lower pressure. I have been running low enough that I wasn't getting any release, and may just crank it up to the full 2# and try and see. I don't think it's leaking from grit. I have been a wienie in general on pressure, and only started to crank the side tubes up to a full 2.9#. The boat handles much better when it's hard.
I've emailed Holly, I will post here if/when she responds.
