Storck 185 Ultra-Comfort seatpost - worth it?

I've just got a fabulous Enigma Echo and with it comes the standard Enigma carbon monocoque seatpost. I originally ordered a Storck 185 U-C following rave reviews, but it's taking an age to appear.

Also, I am amazed at how smooth riding the bike is and am now wondering whether to bother with the Storck? One piece of data for you - I have probably only ca. 150-170mm of exposed seatpost so my fear is that the value of going to the Storck may be limited over the Enigma.

Views?

If you have already ordered it and it is on its way, then I would try it and see if it makes an appreciable difference. But if you can cancel your order, then I would cancel it since you seem happy with the comfort of your bike as is.

I had one on my Storck Fenomalist. I switched back and forth between my Ax Lightness Europa. I could tell no difference at all. Mine weighted alot more than 185 grams. More like 230 grams. The seat clamping mechanism is easy to use and robust.
