Road quick release / QR / skewers, light vs 'normal'

I've just found a crack on my QR from Roval wheels (internal cam, housing has a crack, probably I was using too much force), and I need ones (or at least one ), S-Works Tarmac SL6 frame, rim brakes.

Can you feel difference between 'standard' ones that weights >100g and light ones? (35-50g?) I'm not talking about the weight but clamping force (affecting bike handling etc.)

according to some tests, those light external cam QRs can be even 30-40% weaker than internal cam QRs
