Default Vantage carbon fiber pipe

Has anyone tried the vantage carbon pipe, 10scale?
What do you think about it?
Performance and durability?
How does it stack up to the nove 2630?

I've seen one ran on a Plus 12 and it ran pretty good. The guy running never hit anything so I don't know how strong it is. It seemed to be an all around pipe.

Nice pipe, great sound, decent performance. Pretty durable, but the stinger will break if you beat on it enough.
