The last time someone asked this, I weighed a CAP set versus a standard set. IIRC, the net difference was 10 grams. Roughly 20 grams versus 10? Not noticeable to me but there are some who would say they note a difference. An overgrip adds about 6 grams, a rubber band damper maybe 2, 10 grams is not significant IMHO. No idea of the weight of the IG CAP, maybe a few grams lighter?
Not all Czech made. It was manufactured in Austria and finished in Czech Republic.
