I’ve been researching WO1 vs WO10 horns and one of the factors people kept mentioning was the weight difference from the extra metal. I couldn't find the weights posted anywhere, so I asked sax.co.uk, and they sent me the following numbers. Figured I’d post them as others may be interested:

AWO1: 2.4kg
AWO10: 2.6kg

TWO1: 3.15kg
TWO10: 3.5kg

FWIW, here are bronze Yany tenors that I weighed:
T-WO2UL 3.39kg
T-WO20 3.48kg
only ~3% more for full ribs, double bell key arms, etc. vs. 11% more that you measure with brass T-WO1-->T-WO10.

The lightest modern tenor I measured was Yamaha
YTS-82ZASPULWOF 3.19kg.

Surprisingly heavy (to me)
Ishimori UL WOF 3.40kg.

My new 2007 Ref36FLLTD (no hi-F) is 3.24kg
while a silver-plated Ref36 is 3.50kg.

These are all including neck, but no mouthpieces.
