Ti cable would be lighter, but how stiff would it be for brake cable? Prob do ok for shift cable.

How do Ti cables fare with stretching over time?
What is their life expectancy in terms of stretching compared to steel? Or "POWER!!!!!!!1!!!!"cordz ?

It's a bit ridiculous to pay that much for cables.
Worst places to save weight on a bike:
chain
cassette
cables
quick releases

Well, the KCNCs have never created issues, but where I have seen problems is with the Far and Near Skewers. The non qr side cap is machined so minimally, that it cannot provide adequate clamping force without causing play. This leads to a loss of efficiency due to the rear wheel moving about in the dropouts a bit.
