My copay for this chair was ~$200. It has just arrived and I'm setting it up. I'll post a thread after I'm done. Spoiler alert: Compared to my 2 $6,500 Lasher BT-Mg chairs, for such a fraction of the price, it's a better chair. The vast difference in price has almost zero value in performance and only a tiny in weight. Stay tuned for the details.

    I thought the Lasher was significantly less weight.

    So did I, and it is, from a particular point of view (raw frames).

    Weight is a tricky thing to compare, though. The devil is in the accessories.

    Bottom line is this: You can accessorize the "lightest metal frame chair in the world" until it weighs just a few pounds less than a factory stock TiLite Aero Z more thoughtfully accessorized.
