I've just received a set of Tune Skyline skewers I've ordered from Germany. I knew they were light but didn't really "know" what 17.2 grams feels like (both skewers combined.) Should I really use them? :noidea:

I've got some Parts of Passion skewers made for Carbonsports that weigh 31.55g. Beautifully made. Glorious appearance. A work of art.

Utter rubbish as skewers, especially the rear.

I thought they were pretty light. However, to rely upon a complete set that weighs what just the rear Parts of Passion skewer weighs? That's just delusional. I think they would be great for photos or the scales and that's as far as I'd trust them.
