Thanks. Ordered today, expected in a month or so!
I did a very short test drive today (the same frame but one size smaller) and I have to say that it is amazing. Almost as stiff as the Scylon but slightly more responsive, considerably lighter and sooo much smoother. Exactly what I was looking for.
Photos, details and review after I get mine. : )

Almost bought a torque wrench, but then went down the rabbit hole researching...

Any recommendations for an adjustable one? Need 3nm and up

Depends on your budget. Cheap ones cost like 40€ and more pro stuff cost 100€+. If you go cheap route just get anything which fit on your budget. For more professional tool Wera 1-25Nm (~100€) would be one option.

Your Lightning setup was pretty light already IIRC. How much do you expect to save?

A torque wrench is only ever as good as it’s calibration certificate.

And storage. Make sure you zero it out before you put it away.
