Currently, I am considering this seatpost to replace the Thomson Elite I currently use.
I am hoping to both shed weight and increase comfort with a carbon post and this one seems to be pretty light (27.2x350 @ 159g) for the price (~$83 USD @ universalcycles).

Any reason why I haven't heard more about this seatpost? Anyone currently using it?

Awesome. Now that I see that picture again, I remember you being the only one I have seen so far with one of these posts.
Have you had it for a while? How do you like it?

I have the Woodman Carbo DX which is with setback version in 31.6mm X 350MM for almost a year. An excellent post and came in 153 grams.

Maybe, I have an axlightness 2100 seatpost that I'd like to use on my new bike but it might be too short. the woodman is my backup.

I have one that worked out quite well. No real flex issues. Over the winter I over torqued the bolts and cracked the lower cradle. Turns out a Thomson lower is a direct replacement. The weight after I trimmed it down and before the Thomson lower it was 98g.

On my way to work today this seat post failed. The cradle has these cutouts in it that are a crappy design. One side got caught on the post's lip and chipped the post a bit which caused the clamps to loosed just a tiny bit, which in turn caused it to fail and my seat to go flying.
