Cons: um, none?
Honestly, a barrel is a barrel. Most barrels will shoot about the same, with a bit of variation in volume depending on how much porting there is.
If you want to save the extra weight, or if your stock barrel is beat up, go for the stiffi; otherwise, what you already have should be fine.

If you want a CF barrel, I have and recommend Deadlywind Barrels, specifically the Deadlywind Fibur. It is a great looking, well made CF barrel with a bore so smooth you can use a standard swab with no concerns. The main feature that sets this barrel apart is these barrels use FREAK inserts. So you can change bores for 15 bucks and match you paint and field conditions on the fly.
I have four, three of the FIBUR that use the inserts; a 14”, 12” and 10” and a 12” NULL (fixed bore) barrel in .688, the only bore available.
They are strong, very light, made well, quiet and look great too.
