Hey guys anyone be able to help me out? I have a 16 inch long 54mm motor tube/airframe that is Black G12 made by (madcow/rocketrywarehouse/proline/performance). What I need to know does anyone know the weight of its filament wound carbon fiber counter part of the same dimensions?

I am asking because i want to know which is lighter. I know the CF is lighter but I dont know by how much. I want to know if it is worth getting a CF piece if there is a big difference in weight.

Thanks
