I see Dead Blow Mallets from 12 oz up to at least 48 oz. If you were purchasing a single Dead Blow Mallet, which weight would you consider optimum?

I like something around 2 to 2 1/2 pounds. 2” diameter face and around 12 to 14” in length. Any bigger and it feels awkward and any lighter you use to much striking force.
