Very nice
I prefer longevity over extreme weight savings so steel wins over aluminum. For the price, I am pretty happy with this sprocket so far. It is lighter than the less expensive steel sprockets as well. Fitment is perfect and it looks good on the bike. After a few rides it still looks new. Will buy again in the future.

Great value, long life and light weight
Unless you are a pro, the little weight difference on this sprocket wont matter a bit. Outstanding value compared to the aluminum centered sprockets and much longer life than aluminum. Just bought a new one with the existing one having gone two seasons and still has life in it. Stand up very well and fit perfectly.
