Ponder, I'd take that shaft off your hands but I'm nowhere near Vancouver
FWIW, I actually cut/chiselled the blade out of my Base, then put in an X60 blade, and didn't really notice much of a weight/balance difference. So I'd say the weight is probably similar to the X60 blade (Base OPS sticks are fused, they're simply a 2-piece stick with the blade and shaft epoxied together, which is the case for a lot of "OPS" sticks on the market).

And too bad, obviously you're from Minny but thought I'd offer in the off chance that you were going to be in Vancouver for some reason. The Base shaft will go back to its usual duty of collecting dust in my closet.
