Clamps are the same between both, only the shift lever and body are different.
are they interchangeable? what the different between red and force body?

Just bought a set of SRAM Red C2 shifters and here are some more weights with Gore cables:

The cables didn't reach the table and this spare set should be a bit less than 30g (without the plastic keeping it together), so these levers are also 28x grams.

You just got a heavy set, it seems. :|

mine weigh 308.6 grams... i, too, was disappointed. seems pretty common, though, for them to be overweight.

I'm pretty sure my force clamps are a piece of metal that's been bent into shape. The red clamp is a cut from a drop shaped tube of some sort. It's one solid piece.

I could be mistaken..
