Strengths:    - Stopping power; solid feel
- Looks - if you want something "different"
- Koolstop dual compound pads come stock
- Allows for spring adjustment


Weaknesses:    - Price maybe... more well known calipers can be had for less money; Ultegra/SL is probably a better value
- Feel might not "do it" for some as they do not feel like Campy or Shimano setups


Bottom Line:   
I was previously using Ultegra SL calipers with Koolstops on my good road bike but took a gamble with these in an effort to gain more stopping power. Fortunately it worked. They have very impressive stopping power - even better than Ultegra. I'm using them with SRAM Force levers and they seem to lack a little bit of feel that you get from a SRAM/SRAM setup, but they make up for it in stopping power. The modulation has a better feel to it than Shimano and Campy setups that I have ridden.
