"relatively" lightweight rear hubs for conversion to 126 mm OLD


I was wondering what "relatively" lightweight options are out there for a 90ties rear hub (cassette compatibility) with either 126 mm OLD or a possibility to remove washers from a 130 mm to get to 126 mm? I know we are not going to get anywhere close to a 150 g hub, but I am curiouos what my options are. Weight Weenies assemble

Probably a hybrid unliglide/hyperglide shiamno 600 hub? Highest quality you can find that's natively 126, other than Dura Ace and that requires special dura ace cassettes.

Or, you might be able to remove washers from certain specific 130 OLD hubs to create a 126 OLD hub as seen in this thread: 10-speeds on a 126mm hub SUCCESS
