Excellent advice Rich and Ben, thank you. I just need to fly them more. They do have more '' snap '' than RR's, and I haven't really put them '' through the paces'' only flew them twice in 0-4 winds and I definitely need more practice in those wind conditions . I will definitely keep them in my bag and fly them as often as possible. I'll edit my review in a few months after I've flown them a lot more. Thanks guys!!

I weigh them just like in the picture, balanced in the center and ends not touching the ground. Battery is good, a nickel weighs 5g, so I know it's calibrated. I dunno, might try to find another scale, but I'm pretty sure this one is accurate. Like I said, there is a difference between the two sets, the Diamonds are stiffer and that's about it. Not any real difference in the weight. The center rod in the diamond set weighs 19.9-20.0 grams, and the center rod in the race set is 14.9grams

Yes Wayne, you are correct. In weighing a frame set I will get 3-4 different weights within the same wrap. And my thoughts on this are, when you're talking Sul conditions, grams are like pounds. Every gram counts.
