Is it me (as in my braking skills) or do Margura Marta pads wear fast?

I have tried both the Performance and Endurance (5.1 and 5.2) on the rear and really didnt see any difference in wear. The front (performance) seem to be wearing OK.

I'm running 200mm on front with a with a Marta wavey rotor. The rear is 160 mm with an SL drilled rotor.

I rarely get brake fade on the rear. In fact, it happens more often on the front. I tend to do lighter, but longer braking on the back.

They wear really fast (I have only tried Performance pads). It seems like 6 months of regular use. I think I wore out the rear faster than the front (probably bad technique). I also got lot of fading/ballooning after doing more technical trails.

I barely got 3 months out of mine. I ride a lot, 2000+ mi yr. I have also been doing a lot of long climb, long downhill runs recently trying to get ready for Downieville. So, it maybe normal wear.
