    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.
