Which spokes are lighter, DT revolution 1.8/1.5 DB spokes or Sapim CX-ray aero spokes? Does Anyone KNow? Are the Sapims really that much stronger?

The DT's are ligher: for 64pcs 260mm: CX-Ray 278g, DT Revo 1.8-1.5-1.8 257g, but you better don't use them on the drive side of the rear wheel. The Sapim's are stronger but they are slightly havier.

You can use Revs on the drive side, I do so regularly (generally the 2/1.5/2 or with a spoke washer).
