Favorite Aero Seatpost?

I'm looking into aero seat posts for my DF frame (running FSA SLK 31.6 diameter round seatpost currently). Any caveats or favorites when it comes to aero seatposts?

Thank you.

No doubt about that.

I'm not sure if an aero seatpost makes a bit of difference, but figured if I'm doing skinsuit, aero lid, wheels, eventually more aero sprint bars, (an since my only track bike doubles as a sprint and pursuit rig), I might as well think about a post as well. Got so into messing with my road TT bike the last couple of years, getting everything slick, it's kind of hard to ignore things when looking at a bike now, haha.

Was thinking something like this or similar: https://www.dolan-bikes.com/wing-tt-...-seatpost.html

Yeah, my DF3 came with one of those. I found the hardware a bit cheap and eventually replaced it with a Thompson, and that is exactly what I would do again if I had a bike with a round seat post. I'm with you, I am dubious as to the aero seat post making any difference in times.

I've got a Thomson seatpost collar on this bike which is really nicely made; used to run Thomson posts, stems and bars on my MTBs, impressive stuff, and durable! I've replaced the crappy post that came with this DF frame with an FSA SLK which is decent, but if I can find an aero post that fits and is of good quality, I'd give it a try.
