As much as anything there's just more diversity. Rob are most of your comments about 7.9s?
I was reffering to the spread of weights in the link above Simon. Mine would be 7.9. Fwiw though my 2014's are very good.

I can however weigh my 7.9's going back to 2005 if anyone wants to see what they are. Obviously there may only be 1-2 batches and a few years missed out, so it would be difficult to draw any conclusions.
