    I owned one for a tad and found them to be fine weight wise. They balance well. Not lightweight, but not Warwick weight either. I actually liked the weight. I played a USA one and it was heavier.

    I find them to be a bit heavy, undoubtedly do to the maple bodies. But they balance well, no back issues.

    Definitely balanced better (from what I remember) than my Legend 5 does. Was a little heavy it seemed, but hell, it's a big bass with loads of features and top-quality components!! Solid.

    I have a Euro 4 and find it to perfectly balanced and average weight. Not super light, but certianly not the heaviest bass I've owned. Not uncomfortable at all.

    My NS5CRFM was very heavy and a bad neck diver.
