Catback vs Axelback?

My next step is put an exhaust on my 2012 V6 however I'm not sure if I should do an Axelback or Catback? I understand the Axelback is more for sound and the Catback reduces some weight. However I'm not planning on putting a tune on the car or anything and was wondering if it's worth getting a catback if I'm not going to use a tune or if I should just get an Axelback instead and save money? Opinions or suggestions?

axleback is all sounds. cat is lighter will actually show some hp gains and such but is also usually a lot more expensive

& u can always custom make a catback just buy a axleback & get an exhaust shop to do the over axle pipes.

Catbacks sound better and more crisp than axle-backs along with more hp
