At 9.5 ounces it the lightest variable that has ever been made (that we know of), but to relay how light it is in promotions I need some ideas.

Average human heart is about 11 ounces.

Campbell's can of soup is 12 ounces

Two hockey pucks weigh 11 ounces.

Two D size batteries weigh 10 ounces.

Human brain typically weighs around 47 ounces, so 10 ounces should be about right for a brain of a typical Bernie voter.

10 ounces is about the same weight as 100 pennies.

Weighs less than a clear conscience.

Weighs less than a helium-filled hummingbird.

Weighs less than Ed Connelly’s brain.

Or a set of talley lightweight aluminum rings?

This might actually be false. The scope doesn’t weigh less than zero.  ;-)

Me too, but that only works for the pre-1982 copper pennies. The 1982-present ones weigh less. Smile

Chris, there’s the great ad visual you were seeking.

Good job Joe! Something everyone can relate to!
