Is an Islander Soprano neck heavy?

If you own an Islander Soprano, do you find it to be neck heavy? I've played an old Martin soprano in the store and it was really light and balanced, weight wise.
I started on an islander soprano that now belongs to my 10 year old. I just checked it and it is definitely a little heavier in the neck than a concert flea, but I'd never found it unbearable. The weight might be due to the relatively wide neck, although I find it very nicely shaped and easy to play.
I switch back and forth from an old Martin to an Islander concert and don't notice much difference in balance, of course the Martin is much lighter.
