Whatever happened to all the 8deg stems? Thomson had them (in a big range) and so did Rotor, in gloss black.

Thomson's 10deg might do you as the stack height is 36mm compared to the 'normal' 40-42mm. It's a little porky however.

Have you seen the Thomson in person? Not perfect match to gloss black, but it's good enough for me against Ritchey wet black bars.

Ritchey WCS 260 comes in Gloss Black and even the faceplate is gloss.
For certain parts stiffer is more important than lighter.
