I've been playing with these sticks for years, I've gone through literally hundreds of pairs. In all that time I've never noticed a weight difference, it's been incredibly consistant, and suddenly, about a month ago, every pair I've held from multiple retailers have felt lighter. I've purchased two four packs, all of them were lighter, I've checked sticks at two different Guitar Centers, a Sam Ash, and even Best Buy, all lighter. It's not just a matter of getting a lighter pair of sticks. It's more a matter of the sticks being consistent over the course of many years, and now, apparently, still consistent, but notably lighter, in all pairs I've tried.
