Only other hammer I have to compare against is the stock hammer.
Piranha 2k3, AA Messiah, Evil Pipe, PE 48/3k, Boss bolt
Much lighter than the stock hammer. About half the weight.
Finish wasn't as smooth as the stock hammer.
While the lighter weight of this hammer helps with efficiency, the main benefit of the weight decreas is less kick. With the standard hammer installed the firing of the gun was enough to shake the hopper to clear any jams. With this new hammer I am forced to get a motorized hopper since there is nearly no recoil. This helps you hold the gun on target while firing, increasing accuracy.
The only complaint I have is that it sounds like it is scraping a little on the inside of the body. I have it well oiled and I don't see any signs of wear after two cases of paint. I am currently looking into a way to polish titanium to maybe get rid of the noise.
While the price is kinda steep, this upgrade is definatly worth while. The accuracy achievable with this is just simply amazing. I would give it a 10, but the price and rougher than expected finish bring it to a 9.
9 out of 10

Weight decrease will cause more recoil, not less. Trust me, I've Newton's laws of motion on my side. :p
This is a false statement, less wieght will result in less recoil, there is a smaller amount of wieght movin on the inside of the gun, therefore less wieght being thrown around, it would be like getting hit by a basket ball compared to a bowling ball traveling at the same speed, the bowling ball is gonna hurt hell of a lot more.
No, you need to identify what is causing the object to move. What is causing the balls to move? If equal force (like in a paintball marker), then a bowling ball would move less. It's harder to throw a bowling ball than a basketball. Equal recoil pressure on a lighter object will push it farther than on a heavier object.
To make it easier, I'll use a 15-pound musket versus a 10-pound musket. Same concept, different stuff. You're shooting the same lead ball in each musket, with equal amounts of gunpowder. The gunpowder ignites in both guns. It produces gas which produces pressure in the chamber. Pressure goes everywhere, not just against the bullet. That's why we have recoil. Anyway, the high pressure kind of forces the chamber to expand, but it can't, so it pushes the bullet out while also pushing in the opposite direction, againts you. That gas is gonna have a harder time pushing a 15-pound musket than pushing the 10-pound musket.
