How much extra weight does string add?
Usually .5 oz
which is i think about 15 grams?
natural gut and poly add more...
some multi is less...
15-25 grams... luxilon heavy.
Around 18 +/- 3 grams depend on your string pattern.
Almost poly heavier than syn gut & multi
Gut....Umm....too expensive to touch them
I just received a an order for a matched pair of K90's from TW. Unstruing weight was 12 oz even. I had Klip Legend mains and Gosen Sheep cross and it brought the weight up to 12.5 oz. so .5 oz sounds about right.
assuming you're not talking about that weird double strung frame, or a Big Bubba, or some insanely dense string pattern, about half an ounce for 16g string. About 17 grams for 15 g, and less for the 17, 18 and 19 g strings.
