Is there a good torque wrench out there that is not *that* heavy ?

I think iíll keep this one too but damn I must be getting old ... I need the light weight version
Not really.

Mine is 3.15lbs versus yours at 3.4lbs, so about the same. Mine is 24.5" vs yours at 21.5".

I have to say that I don't find my tool heavy at all for what it is. Maybe I am used to very heavy tools at work. For example, my 3/4" breaker bar in my garage is much longer and heavier.

Thanks for giving me the specs, greatly appreciated... I just checked and my current torque wrench weighs more ... I guess I just didn’t realize it.

This is my current one
