Installing the grips shaved 12g off the weight of the poles. They now come in at 297 grams. The original grips were just EVA Foam, so it is not surprising that the weight did not drop all that much. No big deal, as shaving weight was not the goal of the grip change. The Gossamer Gear grips continue to be my favorite, and I will at least attempt to install them on any pole I ever use. They are extremely comfortable, plenty durable, and fit my hands well.
