A torque wrench is only ever as good as it’s calibration certificate.
I bought one of these and use it to calibrate all of my torque wrenches. These are very accurate and stay accurate. A torque wrench will have a small hole that you use a hex key to turn a screw to loosen or tighten the spring. That's how it's calibrated at the factory.

Appreciate the link.

Ended up buying a Raden Torque Wrench and a pair of Dura Ace pedals

I wish SMP would modernise their production method, similar to what Specialized, Fabric and now Giant and some Fizik models are doing. Far tidier result. Wrapping the cover over foam and stapling/gluing it underneath is so dated now it's not even funny.

Haha old world Italian stuff made in Italy. This model has no foam but much to my surprise it is comfortable. There is always the full carbon model for modern looks. If they modernize these saddles they will be extremely expensive I fear.
