Carbon fiber tone ring for tenor banjo

Has anyone tried a carbon fiber tone ring on the tenor banjo?
The banjo I use for gigs gets heavier each year and a padded strap helps little.
At one time there was a lad in Australia making CF rings but I know not if he still does.

JP banjos are pretty light. It’s a bronze tone ring but lighter.
Nechville banjos make some hardwood tonerings that sound very good too.

Check with Ken LeVan. He does CF tone rings, IIRC. He is in US. Has an active presence on Banjo Hangout forum.
