Not too sure about the price but I know Mission makes one of the lighest sticks I've felt. My brother uses that and he's on pace for breaking the HS record for his confrence for points... So that says alot.. about the stick

pretty much any current stick on the market should fit your needs considering the heaviest stick now is waaay heavier than the lightest stick 5 years ago.

Yes I know it's an 05 model but it is just as light as the 07 model.

I actually found the warrior to be one of the stiffest sticks i've used. I would say go for the Vapor XXX lite

Ask yourself this, are you gonna feel a difference of 20-50 grams? Not likely. Try to find something that's well balanced. A well balanced stick will feel lighter then it actually is.

Like the lightsabre, the light hockey stick is still centuries away in terms of technology.
