I think you've seen a lot of people adopt CF shafts due to real or perceived increases in performance by one measure or the other. I think the butt of cues is a lot more about feel and aesthetics for a lot of people. Personally I see myself possibly using a CF shaft in the future, but the designs, inlays, and wood work of a butt will continue to be my preference over other materials.

Here's my analysis:

I have made 2 all carbon fiber cues, experiments, there are around 12 oz and I use them for jumping where shaft jump cues not allowed, also the lite weight makes great for breaking.
