My understanding was that 3T is actually of thicker carbon than Deda hence a small penalty in weight.
Anyway, Superleggara is still on the table too, I haven't pulled the trigger yet. (But I have like 50 tabs open so it's bound to happen soon!)

I my opinion the road buzz is greatly reduced with a good carbon stem. This is what connects directly to the fork. I changed my stem first and I was so pleased that went with bars as well.
Do you want solid bars? Go Thomson carbon. They make the bars of a whole piece of carbon. No gluing different parts as most out there.
On a fall they break at the joints. I had a couple bad falls and those things are solid!

Bike 1: FSA os-99 stem 110mm (Carbon wrap) with SL-K 40cm bars full carbon this setup feels stiff as hell
Bike 2: Deda Zero Stem 100mm, Deda Zero 100 40cm bars this setup feel much more compliant
Tape is Fizik superlight on both
I have ridden carbon bars that felt like noodles and would flex when riding hard, never really enjoyed that. 3T Rotundo comes to mind fore some reason.

The only advantage I can see with the carbon bars is the weight reduction and better looks. Too much road buzz? Lower the front tire pressure with 20-30 psi or use a wider tire
It's a princess and the pea effect; some feel it, most don't; or maybe it's psychological where one has to justify all the extra $$$ spent over equivalent alloy.
At the end of the article you can see that the stiffness differences between super stiff aero carbon frames and comfort frames can be eliminated with dropping 1 bar pressure from the tires.
