Anyone have the La Sportiva G5, and know it's weight?

Anyone have the La Sportiva G5, and can check the weight? I'm seeing conflicting info online about how light they actually are, and La Sportiva doesn't list the weight officially on their website.

I'm contemplating going to the G5 from my Nepal Cubes mainly for weight, since some specs claim ~7oz lighter weight per foot (worth the change), though others show 1oz lighter (not worth the change). I'm size 45 in the Nepal Cube.

The G5 is right at 30.1 oz in a size 47. I just bought a pair, and would rather the g5 over the cube anyday. The BOA system is excellent. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
