From what I can tell there isn't alot of difference
between the tubesets other than the way they
are produced.

For Columbus SL and SLX (Seamless):

The tubes are produced from a solid billet of steel pierced and
drawn to the necessary dimensions.

Columbus Cromor (seamed):

Seamed tubes are produced by rolling sheet into a tube and
welding it up. The resulting pipe is then drawn down and cold
worked to its final dimensions; the seam is worked
into the tube and becomes invisible to all except electron
microscopes

I don't think there is a significant weight difference
in the 2 tubesets.
