On my Unique brand 1/4 inch lead tape it says 4inches is a 1/2 gram, But in Smash magazine Nate fugerson said that 1/4inch lead tape generally weighs 1/4gm per inch. Who's correct? (Unique 4inch=1/2gram, Nate Fugerson 4inch=1gram)

Different leads come in various thicknesses--you may be comparing different leads.
