Strengths: Nice shape. Should be stronger than stock, definitely stronger than carbon.
Weaknesses: Not a well developed product. Did not install without having to do some modification. The bore for the plunger bushing on both levers was too tight creating excessive friction. I had to file the coating off the inside in order to get it too work. Levers are slightly too wide at the pivot causing excessive friction against the pivot bushings resulting in slow return of the lever.
I had to mess with these way too much for a $94.00 set of blades. Fortunately I got mine for $65.00. I would just by stock Juicy blades to replace mine if I had to do it over again.
