Strengths:    inexpensive

Weaknesses:    too much play
not solid feel

Bottom Line:   
These lever came on my bike when I purchased it from a bike mechanic. They work just fine, but they have too much lateral play for my taste and they just don't feel right. If you are looking for something that you won't spend too much on and that works, by all means these are the levers for you. But, for me personally, I want to replace them with some XT levers. I just really don't like the lateral play in them. Hope this helps somebody out.
