    There seems to be two different versions of the chinese models itself - the current one that says 6.0 on it and the older ones that say 6.0 on the inside of the throat and prostaff in italics on the top of the throat. The older ones say 50-60 lbs or 25-29 kgs. These #s don't agree! Also, the older makes seem to play a lot stiffer and heavier than the current ones.

    Yep, that's what I got, the older China one. It's stiffer and heavier, but it's more stable, has a larger sweetspot and has better feel.

    It weighs 354 grams with a synthetic grip.

    I have 6g of lead at 3/9 positions and a headtape to make it about 0.25" HL which is pretty close to even balance. Works great on baseline pounding. Its the best of all the models ever released.
