I think a treble which is just 1lb short of 4cwt would be perfectly 
acceptable for a 21cwt tenor. If they sound weak - the hangings are wrong. I 
wonder why there is such a large jump between bells 4 and 5 though. 

Look at Loughborough Bellfoundry Campanile for a lightweight front end - I 
don't think they sound weak at all. Who would suggest installing a 6½ cwt 
ring of six with a 1½ cwt treble? Strange how some people say it wouldn't
