Bottom Line:   
it was okay but i like my 8 inch hayes better. the wet weather stopping power is good but they could be better. the price for them was overall okay, but 150+ for the vee brakes was unreasonable to me. i think that for anyone who loves vee brakes should go with these, but the hayes hydro was better.
