Another good question is whether there is a significant weight difference in the finished product between the heat-shrink build up sleeves and the flat versions (both Gamma). Although they are a little more work, I have always preferred the latter because, if done right, they maintain the bevels better. But this thread makes me wonder whether they also maintain weight and balance better than their heat-shrink brothers. I haven't used the heat-shrinks for a very long time so I do not have both on hand for comparison.
