Has anyone verified the weight of the 6.5" Fifth Element Air Shock? Is it really sub 200 grams?

I have the 5th element air shock in 165mm in length...with the aluminum and steel end bushings/tubes and the 4 small rubber o-rings that fit inside of those, it weighs 243 grams including the 1 gram for the sticker.

The lightest shock available is the German:A Air-force SLR, followed by the German:A Air-force 1 reloaded, DT Swiss SSD 210L and the 5th Element Air.

If function is also a matter fact you should go for the DT, still the best air-shock on market. Service is great, too.

Can you provide a web link to the German Air-Force SLR company as well as weights of their air shocks?
