Easton Monkeylite DH Riser anyone?

Well, it's finals weeks, and I need to keep stop thinking about school, so I'm looking at parts for the Nomad. Is anyone running Easton's Monkeylite DH riser bar? Any regrets buying it? I was gonna get the Gravity Lite riser, but am thinking about getting the Easton. It's 240 grams which it pretty light in my books. Not to mention is looks awesome

My LBS sells lots of those and I haven't really heard anything bad about them. I personally wouldn't get them because I don't trust carbon. (I know I have trust issuse )

I have a Monkeylite XC bar on the Dawg...I've ridden some pretty rough terrain with it, spent some time in the air, and I'm not light. No issues with it and I've never worried about it.

That's what I keep hearing. I think everyone thinks that carbon will snap on any rough terrain, but it really doesn't

Thanks
