buoyancy of Sigalsub Reel Edy 60 mm Carbon?

I am looking for a small reel for my bleutec simple carbon 75.
I already own a small reel from MVD, but I feel that it adds way too much negative buoyancy to the setup.
Now I have set my eyes on sigalsubs 60mm carbon reel. I wonder if the carbon helps with the buoyancy, or if its just way too little to make a difference.

Does anyone here own the reel?

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have the Sigalsub Carbon reel mounted on one my Sigalsub Team Carbon 110. I dont think it has a great influence on buoyancy but itís hard to tell without checking it. I canít take it off that easily too since I have to unwind the damn thing before I can reach the screws. The Carbon itself is positive but it has a stainless steel base and axle which you have to account for. It certainly is light and works well.
And mine is not the 60 version but the largest one they have.

Do you know if the spool itself is made of carbon? Or is it milled out of POM?
