From what I just Googled the Stohlquiest Descent is 17lbs bouyancy and the Astral green vest is 16.75 lbs so not much difference, but I like the way you are thinking.
I'll wear a comfortable PFD in the playpark. For creeking I don't give a rat's ass what it feels like. It could be lined with spikes for all I care. I want it to stay on tight, float me good, and hold all the gear that I like to have on my body.
