    Conoflex = 1lb 5 oz (595g)

    Gardner Specialist Extended = 1lb 2oz (513g)
    Drennan Super Specialist (Twistlock) = 13oz (362g)

    That makes the Conoflex sound like the Lone Angler handle I had. It was way heavier than the Gardner. You could have used the Lone Angler handle to beat people to death with.
