Have a Q4 on mine above. Big weight difference. Stock muff
feels like cast iron. I would say it's close to 10lb difference.
Wish I would have weighed both at install time. Love the Q4.

I'm getting close to needing a rear and seems most like the
009 especially the wear. After doing some searching I think
I might like the 005 better. Not as much life but better grip.
