    wow. sorry I haven't posted. Been busy stringing at a National Tourney. Anyway, as for your question, I've never weighed the entire reel. I would do it for you, but right now, the only reel I have is not complete. When I order a new reel, I'll weigh it for you.

    any reason you want to know???

    My used reel of 407 feet weighs 16oz., and my "new" reel weighs 12.89oz.

    I delt with a very honest seller who assured me he will make it right if it comes up short though

    I didn't subtract out the weight of the zip tie or the plastic packaging for the 40 ft set when I weighed it .... I'm hedging my bet that the spool weighs as much as 16 zip ties and plastic packaging... :p
