You should email Hitchcock's and see if there interested in purchasing a few pairs since they are buying up twins all over the planet.
I don't know yet Ace, but I will can certainly ask Monday morning. I know my preliminary phone call with them I was informed that a Honda Civic has a very similar dimension rod as what the 700s require. Those rods are holding 1500HP on a 4 cylinder for several thousand miles and are still holding together. I will ask him what the weight is of one of those Civic rods so we can at least get a rough idea of how much they will weigh. Or maybe their computer will even give a rough estimate as to how much they will weigh. I'm not sure. I DO know that like Carillo, R&R also balances their rods within +/- 1g.Maybe I should tease them "I'll trade you a pair of custom 1-off bullet proof steel rods for a 1 piece cylinder." Scottie J

Does a late model 750 cylinder actually mate up with a 700 case? If so that would be cool. If it turns out the custom rods are a bit mass-ive for your taste you could have them reprogram the CNC machine to trim it down to a 200 hp rod. Seriously, I'm not funnin on you!
