    Nittaku Fastarc G-1 is the new "Mark V". The thicker it is, the higher the maximum potential spin and speed but it will be heavier.

    Yup. I might also hazard a guess the OP is probably used to playing hardbat/premades or traditional penhold with rubber on just one side and is now suddenly surprised at the extra weight.

    Yeah 209 grams is pretty darn heavy for me. My blades are generally around 80-85 grams plus average weight rubber means my setup is around 185 grams or less. You must have a really heavy 301.
