Whether thickness is indicative of weight or not, all I know is that my UFIP top is 826 grams, the A Thin Crash I put on as a top is 820 grams, and when eyeballed, they appear to be the same thickness, or close enough that you can't see the difference. The Paragon top appears to be twice as thick.
You might have a 'dog' set of PARAGONS. If you can try another pair, they may sound different. I've played more than a few HHX EVO hats and they were all different in sound and feel, enough so that I could tell. Not as much consistency as you might expect.
