02-05 Subaru WRX Lightenend Flywheels

Are these claims about lightened flywheels accurate, and who in the SPDA club might be running one in their performance auto:

"A lightweight flywheel is a great addition to any car, especially turbocharged vehicles. A lighter flywheel drastically reduces the rotating mass attached to your crankshaft, allowing your car to rev and accelerate faster. Turbocharged cars will benefit from a quicker spool as well."

What items have good value and should they be aluminum or steel; ACT, ClutchMasters, Exedy, Fidanza, etc?

Do you like the feel of less torque and having your normal shift times altered? It's at least not a sub 10lb flywheel which would give you CELs....I like the stock flywheel. My engine revs fast enough as is...

Starting from a stop on a hill isn't fun either with a light flywheel.
