Worth upgrading Mastadon to Mastadon Pro?

I have a 2018 Trek Farley EX 9.8 full suspension fat bike that came equipped with a Mastadon fork. I love this bike and use it more than my trail and cross country MB's combined. My bike came stacked with carbon frame, carbon wheels, dropper post, Sram GX 1x12 and carbon handlebar in stock form. Other than the fork, nothing really left to upgrade
So I've been looking at the Mastadon Pro for potential upgrade. Anyone here use the pro or better yet, upgraded to the pro from the regular Mastadon?

I believe the Pro is a wider fork, fits 26 - 5.0 and 27.5 - 4.0 +

I guess if you feel the shortcomings of the present fork, it's worth considering
