How much should NOS pair of Techlite levers be?
There’s a pair on eBay which inc postage from Italy is about £110 or so

And used similar Kooka? One here for £85 ex postage

Are they worth it?
It’s a choice between these, Kooka or Paul’s.

I like them, but flexy, super lite.

Paul's probably little better quality though.
And kooka is ok too.

Flip a coin lol

I’ve got a pair of those but in full silver and they are very good levers. Combined with Supreme brakes they are lighter and far more powerful than XTR.

Thanks
I was looking for a pair of High quality light Canti levers for my dynatech - these Avids work as V too I guess - so they’re look great on my Bianchi to replace the Avid SD 2.0 levers

Before you disregard the tech lite levers, I haven't used my red pair yet.
I have used 1st gen tech lite levers though- and tbh they weren't great. Mine and the ones you have seen online are newer model, apparently alot better than previous incantations. More adjustable I believe.

Just thought I should let you know, I should of made myself clearer first time round. Sorry mate....
