My current Shimano 105 5700 10speed brifters weighs 496g altogether. Went 1x, don't really need 2 speed left shifter. I have new 10 speed cassettess, so kind of inclined to remain in 10 speed setup, but I'm open to anything lighter. Sram Red 10 speed used ones would be cost effective for me, but where I live (Bangladesh) it's easier to buy new stuffs that ships in my place. So back to the point, which Sram setup would be economical for me? I can go for Sram Rival sets, but I don't need that 2 speed shifter. Can I mix Sram 1speed left shifter with 10 speed ones, I mean aesthetically? Do their look match? I mean two different shapes for two shifters is a total no what combination can I go for? There's this German site bike-discount.de that ships to my country and have lots of Sram brifters. Help me decide. Also, I'm aware of the fact that with Sram shifters, I will be needing Sram rear dera as well. No problem with that.
So help me get a cheap and lightweight brifter combo for my one by setup.

Alfine drop bar brake lever might be a good budget option if it's compatible with your brakes. a quick google suggests it is

I'm running Cane Creek brake levers and a single bar end shifter on one of my 1x bikes. Depending on how you use the bike this could be an option.
