Yep, this is pretty much exactly what I was going to type.

As for the extra $100....its hard to say whether they will last you any longer, but if you can swing it without it being a big deal on your wallet, I'd say go for it. Its not going to hurt, and at the very least you'll get a nicer tongue and liner.
