Personally the cost of CF does not make the weight difference worth it to me. But if I made more money all of my guns would have their own CF Boomstick kits. Why? Because they are god damn CF Boomsticks!
I would say the big questions beyond personal preference is if you are ever going to want to anodize or bored for Freak inserts, if so aluminum.
Really it is just personal preference.

Was this comparing two barrels that were exactly the same other than material? Not arguing, just curious.
My spool experience causes a little discrimination I suppose.
Ion: takes a half hour to do easy maintenance and there is a 50% chance it will leak once reassembled.
NT: requires at least a four year degree in metallurgy, physics, meteorology and dark magic to get it to operate.
