One measurement is worth a thousand words:
Both levers measured are the shorter hand reach style (look at angle at top of lever) with barrel cable-end holder still attached to lever.
Postal scale, so weights are relative to each other and not absolute.
Nuovo Record -31g- (no holes)
Super Record -29g- (holes) _very_ slightly thinner metal (overzealous buffing?)
