My CG5-ASGT with no CW weights 12.5lbs. I asked this same question a couple of weeks ago, I had thought that it should weigh more, but according to other members it was right.

I believe the tripod is 12 pounds.. The mount is 18 the CW's 22.... Not completely ,sure.. I have never seen such a difference in weight information, then applied to this mount.. No one seems to know exactly.....

42lb - 12lb tripod - 11lb CW = 19lb for the mount alone.

Perhaps not exactly, but I've weighed my CG5ASGT on a reasonably accurate shipping scale and here's what I got:
Head 10 lb 14 oz
CW shaft 2 lb 1 oz
CW 11 lb 9 oz.
Tripod 16 lb 7 oz (2" dia legs)
Leg spreader 12 oz
HC 8 oz
Power cord 9 oz (with cigarette lighter plug)
Total 42 lb 12 oz

12 pounds is a lot cheaper to ship than 43 pounds.
(all properly packed (in-place foam say even if this costs a little bit if extra money - much better than bubble wrap of foam peanuts)
I am assuming my old counterweights and the upgraded CG5 steel tripod I bought for it last year will fit.
This way I'd save on postage which is a killer when shipping heavy stuff from overseas.
