M737 cassette, spot on without spending stupid money. I used to dream about buying an M950 XTR with ti small rings until I found out they weigh 232g. Big expense to save just 23g. :shock:

They varied a lot, I had an 11-30 all Ti M950 that weighed 191g Had M737 vary by as much as 48g between units too. Luck of the draw much of it.
