$3.09 a lb isn't too bad. That's less than I normally pay, but more than I've seen others around here get it for.
As for the weight, he's probably right. A fully trimmed flat and point would probably max out at about 10 lbs.
Sorry... no pictures from me. But I'll betcha some other Brothers have some AWESOME ones... (ahem...Paul?? a little help here?)
