What is the weight difference between the two strut options?

Any noticeable change in "glide ratio", engine out?

Can't wait !!!  I noticed the sensenich propeller I'm curious what the diameter  is and what the pitch is set at.

I copied this from the 750 on my 701. Nice to see zenith continue to serve 701 owners with improvements! i hope my engineering matches yours. I probably over did it. Do you think the gross weight could be increased as you suggest in the video? Mine is the old 960lbs. If so, to what? I know a lot more components go into that but it sure would be a solution for some.
