Any ideas on a good light stem (<=125g, 105mm) in 1 inch? So not a 1 1/8th stem with a shim. Looking to drop the weight of the shim.

A light 1"1/8 stem with a light shim will be the lightest. Nobody makes new light 1" stems

Nobody makes 1" stems anymore. You can drill holes in the shim as long as you get rid of the sharp edges and cut the weight some that way.
