Spire is actually lighter than the z2, and has a bit of a smaller profile.

No, its not.

Prophecy z2 - 14.8oz
Virtue Spire - 16.5oz

1lb = 16oz

I dont have a spire sitting in my room to compare, but i'm pretty sure the prophecy is a tad smaller. Spire is about the same size as the Rotor, maybe slightly less tall

This gives you the hopper's weights.

What batteries used and the speedfeeds both make a difference in that video....

As pumpscout posted... those are the true weights.

I really think the weight between the z2 and Spire isnt really a factor. Hardly think on top of a gun, and full of laint anyone will notice the weight difference. I didn't look at the video, but I would imagine with batteries the Spire would weigh less since it takes less batteries
I've played/owned a z2 for a while and it always worked flawlessly.

Recently tested a Spire, and it has a fairly significant lower profile. I just sold my z2 to pickup a Spire

I agree. The weight difference is minimal. Just buy according to features, looks and price. And in my opinion, if you are going to compare weights, weigh them stock WITH batteries.
