Heavier handle for R89?

I use an EJ DE89 as my daily razor (looking to upgrade to Rockwell 6C soon) and recently bought an R89 as a travel razor. I disliked it instantly as it felt far too light. I believe there to only be 10g or so difference in weight between them but in use, I noticed immediately that the R89 felt far lighter and due to this fact, I really disliked it.

Has anyone tried a heavier handle on the R89 or have any suggestions of where and which ones I could try as it would be a shame to never use it again.
The Weber Bulldog handle is significantly heavier than the stock EJ handle and works very well imo.

Might be my imagination at work, but I seem to remember reading somewhere that they are still being sold.
