I'm using a Sonor 4000 multistands to reduce the number of stands I need to carry. One holds a rack tom and a crash#1, and the other holds a ride and crash #2.

Yeah my Saturn Tour V 20" kick is a beast weight-wise. I had no idea. That maple layered up with walnut makes for a very dense & heavy kick. Sounds great, though!
The older ones were even heavier. The gen III had iso mounts for everything; floor tom legs, kick spurs, and tom tree. They all sound good though.

Bones, I had a Saturn 3, which had the tom base plate mounted on rods that went from the back lugs to the front lugs. The plate was not drilled to the shell. Don't know how familiar you are with that series, but the mounting plate was fairly massive, which really added to the weight of the drum. Believe me, it wasn't fun lugging that thing out of the club at 2 am lol.

I have not tried the lightweight Sakae hardware myself, but if anyone's willing to take a risk, I just found you a hell of a deal on it on Reverb.

That's right, a hi-hat, a tom stand, a snare stand, and two cymbal stands would run you under $200.
