Default Carbon fiber lower shaft - Worth it?

I found a carbon fiber lower shaft for my Nokta Simplex for a good price. I haven't seen one in person, so I don't know if it will be noticeably lighter. I don't think it's that heavy now, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to knock the weight down a bit. It's the one that Nokta makes, not a third party. If I'm not mistaken, it was $30.

Love mine too !! I have the carbon fiber shafts on both coils. No wobble and I also like the way they look.
