Strengths:    Looks great, good attention to detail

Weaknesses:    Pricey!

Bottom Line:   
The headset spacers look great, the grain pattern on the Maple matches throughout. It is extremely expensive for a computer milled piece. But then there's the fact that it's unusual and different, which is worth a bit of dough. A standard FSA or Cane Creek IS2 is in the $25 to $45 range. This is 3-6 times that, and the only real difference is the spacer? HMMMMMM? Well I paid it, so I guess that means it was worth it to me! Works exactly like any other headset.......................
