Alloy post instead of carbon

I posted this before but can't find it.

I'm looking at a weight weenie upgrade for my seatpost and can see a KCNC seatpost thats nice and light to replace my S-Works Carbon one.

Reading on the WW forum people say they have changed from Carbon posts to alloy posts with no problems but they don't say if they're frames are carbon.
Not fussed about shock absorption etc as I'm very light anyway.
I would imagine a little bit of suitable greasing would be sufficient to stop it slipping or getting stuck.

    I would use carbon assembly paste.

    I just had a stroke of luck finding a nice carbon post thats light at a great price so I ordered that instead.

    However. I'll probably still go for the alloy one for my SL3 as it's a KCNC jobbie.
