Likes: The stem is extremely light while being adequately stiff. I was pleasantly surprised by its stiffness, actually, especially when you consider that it weighs only about 100 grams!
Dislikes: You have to really want the light weight, since it will lighten your wallet a lot.
Other: Lots of care is required (and a torque wrench!) not to over-tighten the small bolts in this low-density material.
