The effective mass for the 9c is 9.5g, only the all aluminum 9 is 11g. Pro-Ject erroneously listed it at 11g.
The big advantage with the 9cc over the 9c was that Pro-Ject had touted superior bearings in the 9cc. I suspect (but don't know for sure) that the 9c on your table may have been upgraded to the better bearings as well. I doubt you would be able to hear a difference between the two on your table, but of course if you fitted the damper it would blow away the 9c as well as the stock 9cc. The clamp that comes with the damper is too large to fit on the 9c.
