I don't think anyone ever said ALL the bars are the same.
If two bars are identical in their specs they are the same. I'm not trying to convince anyone. Why would anyone make that up? It doesn't even make any sense that someone would make that up.
Lighter bars measure less than heavier bars. That's just a fact. No smoke involved.
