      Not directly... but indirectly I weighted current racket build, and before I glued XT, also some weighting on changing rubbers before, so if I do some not too hard math, then XT cut and with glue weight about 46 gramms... My calculations is from this: the overall weight my current racket (Cedric Nuytinck blade, EL48 max on BH, XT48 max on FH) is 183.8 gramms, it was 187.6 gramms when I used to have Tibhar Hybrid K1 (euro. edt.) max on FH, and it was 184.2 when I had Hybrid K1 on FH and Joola Rhyzer 48 max on BH, and I also know the weight of cut Rhyzer 48 (with some glue leftovers), it's 46.5 gramms, and the weight of the blade without rubbers and glue is 85.0 gramms...

      From table tennis rubber weight reference site, the stiga mantra s is the lightest with 42 degree.
      Xiom vega europe and donic acuda s2 seem good too... I heard that the vega europe is not durable at all, the topsheet worn out quickly and lose grip.
      Acuda s2 is a pretty old rubber comparing to Stiga mantra but what about the quality of mantra ? Is stiga good in table tennis rubber ? Dan says that it is the best stiga rubber in term of quality and reaches other ESN rubber... so ...
      My retiler doesnt sell Gewo rubbers... I guess they are pretty good but I cant get them.

      I currently use Rasanter R42 on BH and i'll go to a harder rubber in the next setup change but overall R42 is really sweet if you like 42/43 hardness. great active blocking, you can really feel the ball sinking into the rubber when you open up, it never feels out of control.

      I am hesitating between 45 degree and 42/43 degree... but maybe I will stay with the ventus speed which is very good...

      I've tried most of the rubbers suggested here and found R42 to be the best.

      Speaking of Gewo XT for FH, have you seen/tried Gewo EL Pro 50 or 53, I am guessing its new rubber.

      I know about them, but didn't try, but maybe try one of them or both in the future... for now my budget on table tennis inventory for next 1-2 months is already spend on second setup (the same as the main setup, I like to have two identical rackets, one for trainings and rubber experiments, second for tournaments)

      I have mantra S on the BH and i find it very good here as it's very grippy and pretty direct trajectory (still not too much)

      I also played R42 before but finally i didn't like it, it gets not grippy after a while and even in general i found it harder to grab the ball

      Stiga manta is a very nice Japanese rubber. Nittaku fastarc is also very good, fast and spinney but not too bouncy.
