Offhand, I'd treat it as a composite bow. Fundamentally, what it does is let you use a lighter spring arm, which means a higher efficiency, but there's not all that much room for improvement (typically reducing weight by a factor of 3 would push a 40% efficiency to 67%, a 50% to 75%, a 60% to 82%).
