Just got an email from Gen-y.... My hitch weighs in at a approximate 70 pounds. Seems very manageable.

Mine is the 2 inch receiver version...that might explain some of the difference in weight...

Mine is the 2 inch one as well. I use my receiver reducer. So your should be around 110 pounds depending on what WD head your using. If mine had a 60lbs ship weight , then I added 32 lbs adapter . Yours is 70lbs shipped, So I subtracted 20 lbs off my total weight to get 110 to 111 pounds.

Oh got it, your weight included the WD head. I will be using a Blue Ox Sway Pro and attaching its 57 pound head to the 70 pound torsion flex hitch so I will end up close to 130 pounds...

I will...one item I noted. The GEN-Y Torsion Flex Shank is 70 pounds. The Blue OX shank that it replaces is 25 pounds. So the Torsion Flex should add about 45 pounds to the overall hitch assembly weight.
