SHIMANO 105 R7000 Front Derailleur vs Ultegra R8000

My Shimano 105 Front Derailleur (Brazed-On Mount) 2x11-speed needs replacing. The metal where you clamp the gear cable is made of cheese and it's stripped. I need to order a replacement in the next few hours.

Is it worth buying the Ultegra version or would you just buy another 105 FD?
I'm not bothered about weight saving. I just wondered if it's made of real metal and has a better build quality.

Thank you.
