79 gr !!!! I really wonder what is the weight of the lightest one ! I remember 20 years ago, the lightest ones were 90 gr heavy.

I think most of the rubbers today are boosted and very heavy, therefore the blade need to be "slimmer" in order to compensate the weight. LOL

79.58? So you can call it sub 80 gram blade, but if you are going to round it to a whole number this is 80 for sure. And I am sure the difference in a 79 gram blade is A WHOLE LOT different than an 80 gram one.  
Gambler Hinoki Vector blade; Double inverted. Or some LPs.

Do you have old Viscaria? If yes can you compare handle size?

In the catalog, Butterfly indicates the dimensions of the new viscaria ST and those are the same as the ones of nearly all current ALC blades. This is a standard size

Has anyone tried this T series Viscaria? I heard that The viscaria in the past several years were not made in Japan, but this T series ones were made in Japan. Curious whether it plays differently.

These new ones weight probably 5g less. I think it will make difference. I prefer 90g+ Viscaria, not sure whether I will try the new ones.
