What benefit does a lighter hammer have? If anything I'd think a heavier one would be desirable for reliability reasons.


Lighter hammers mean faster ‘lock time’. Ie since there’s less mass to accelerate it will fall faster than a heavier one. Of course being lighter it will also deliver less force at a given speed. 


bare in mind we are talking tiny differences and any benefit is likely so small as to be unnoticed. 


The bigger changes between the hammers comes from their geometry and the shape/length of the hammer hooks.
