Spookys are easy to adjust as well. Sometimes you have to turn the rear pads around to achieve the proper toe-in. And don't be scared to really give'r with a 13mm wrench to tighten the pad posts down. They have a huge amount of tension which is nice in bad conditions.

when you say easy, how would they compare to avid shorty 6's?
Pauls use the same standard threaded V-brake type pads as Avid, so toe angle can be set with the radial washers.

Its easier to adjust pad-rim distance on Avid brakes because they have the little set-screws that you can use to tweak the preload on the spring. With Pauls, you need to loosen the mounting bolt and adjust the preload with a box wrench. Its not difficult.
