Question about mixing by weight instead of volume. http://bit.ly/2D7oTVv

Why does everyone say it’s easier/better to use a scale to measure by weight instead of measuring by volume with syringes? I can’t really wrap my head around it and I’m usually good with this stuff, so I must be missing something. I have the ingredients for Grack and I want to use my usual volumetric measuring methods but everywhere I read the original recipe is done by weight and I don’t want to change the flavor.

If I could use an example to show my thinking.

If I want a 10% flavored juice with 6 mg/ml of flavor for 100 ml of juice I just need 10 ml Flavor/6ml of 100mg nic/ and 84ml of base. That was hella fucking easy.

If I want the same thing by weight, first off I have no idea what the final weight of 100ml of juice is. So how do you work backwards with the percentages if you don’t know the final weight? And second, don’t all of these ingredients weigh differently per mL? Cause I have super thin flavoring that I know for sure doesn’t weigh the same as my thick VG mL:mL. So that complicates it even further unless you are supposed to assume all the liquids have the same density.

What Am I missing? And if anyone can give me weight per ingredient I need for 100 mL of Grack that would be very helpful.
