Default Ultralight Disc Drag Options: Sage 4230, Litespeed, Other

I've got 7' 4wt that is a sub 2 oz rod. The other 4 wt reel I have is 4.6 oz, and it really is misbalanced on this light AND short rod. I really would like a center-line disc reel if I can find one light enough to balance. It seems that weight is no reason to choose click-pawl over disc since some of the disc reels are just as light now. It looks like the Sage 4230 and the new Litespeed Hard Alox come in at 3.75 and 3.5oz. respectively; and will hold a 4 wt line. Are there other options for a 4wt disc drag reel that weighs less than 4 oz? I am open to used/outdated models also, I'll probably be looking to pick this up used and cheap.

Any input/review on these two reels or suggestions of other options?
