    Inspired by @Rustpot thread on frame weight, I was curious about the different weights of the X-metal lineup. With the help of my wife's food scale, here are the results.

    The heavy weight is unsurprisingly the Romeo at 46g.

    Number 2 is the XX at 45g.

    The biggest surprise was the Penny in third at 44g.

    Then the X-squared at 42g

    Tied with the Juliet at 42g

    And the Mars at 42g.

    Very interesting! What about Romeo 2? That frame is super light.

    I know Juliets are light enough that you don't realize they aren't on top your head anymore. I want that pair back. Bad.

    Cool, so the R2 is just over an ounce then! This was awesome, thank you for taking the time to do this! A little surprised the Penny is the 3rd heaviest frame but I guess it is fairly sturdy..
