I think some (most) of that added weight is in that big rubber egg knob that’s used on the Gosa. A good example of this is comparing the Gosa 6k to the Stradic SW 6k. The Stradic is 15g lighter and these two reels are basically the same, less the dual drag stack on the Stradic, but it uses the same Ci4 knob (different color) that’s on the TP…


Can confirm. That rubber knob weighs a ton.

 

But the grip is uncomparable, so I bought an extra handle assembly and put the knob on my Stradic SW.

Might be the knob but still the difference between metal and plastic rotor should more than compensate for that. And it's not from magnesium.

^I think the plastic rotor is heavier than the metal rotor. The plastic rotor is relatively big & chunky so that it's strong & stiff enough to function as it should.
