The spire is slightly lighter than a Z2 but not significantly, and the Z2 is more reliable. The spire is great because it is a little lower in overall height though.
For weight? Pinokio speed
For height? Spire
For just a good all around hopper I'd say Z2. It is solid and fast and you don't have to send it in to virtue for new rubber paddles. Not quite as low as the spire, but still quite low.
Only after putting hundreds of cases through a spire will you really need new paddles. Plus don't forget that you take a brand new z2 out for a day of play, and it will look 2 years old when you get back
