I'm looking for the lightest short pip rubber, including sponge of at least 1.0 or so. Or at least very light ones... 

So far, I've got Nittaku Beautry in 2.0 sponge weighing in at 33 grams cut including the glue. That same rubber in 1.4 sponge might put it around 25 grams. I have some OX LP with glue sheets that weigh 18 grams for reference! 

Does anyone know how much the new spectol rubbers weigh?

I've bought and tested a lot of SP rubbers over the past few years, posting some of their specs on the Rubber Mass Database thread at OOAK: http://ooakforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1128

I played with Beautry for a time but seem to recall that Friendship Legend 105 is even lighter, and not a bad SP in its own right. That being the Legend 105 with light green sponge that comes in only one thickness, 1.9mm, iirc.

My first Legend 105, still in use, is 23g glued.
But my next two had greener sponge and were heavier, 33g glued. All 1.9 thickness.
