If I had to choose betwixt the twain, it would be Universal, no contest. Especially for a TT bike, 'cause Universal brake _levers_ were the lightest you could get (might still be...) ++++++++++++++ I beg to differ, and have just weighed some levers:

112 gm = Universal 61/68 with hood (not usable with out, IMHO) 92 gm = Mafac aluminum with hood, no plastic on lever arm 72 gm = Mafac plastic, no hood.
