Fullcarbon or carbon legs with steel steerertube

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I'm thinking about the 4AZ Phyton or the 4AZ Zornyc - the Phyton is a fullcarbon fork with straight legs and the Zornyc has carbon legs and a steel steerertube and not straight legs.

Which one would you prefer? I like the Phyton because of the weight but it's more expensive! Do they have the same qualities?

Thanks - Mads

as said in the other post, i would definitely go for the python fork. riding quality is very good, no front wheel hopping while braking, and it is as far as i know the lightest fork for cyclocross. rithey has a new fork(wcs), but the height from axle to headset is over 10 mm more than e.g. kuota mud. frischknecht had a wcs fork, but it was unridable because geometry changed too much. python is 398 grams uncut, many road forks dream of that weight...
