    I strung a frame with a new biphase and used 120 string savers on my string.

    And my frame feels much heavier. My frames unstrung weight is 9.1 ounces, and biphase adds like .6 ounces, and i heard 120 savers should add like 1 grams.

    so the weight sould be close to 10 ounces. But it doesnt.

    is something wrong. i dont have any lead tape. just an overgrip. biphase is 16g.

    You are saying the following:

    9.1oz unstrung + 0.6oz of strings = 9.7oz strung weight

    9.7oz strung weight + 1gram of stringsavers = 10oz

    If this is true...you are saying that:

    1 gram = 0.3 oz

    That is incorrect.
    Do you see why? :confused:

    Answer in white(highlight text below):
    1 gram = 0.0352739619 ounces
