It seriously feels like fred Flintstone has his feet out, trying to stop the bike! I have to consciously remember to use a very light "touch" with them, which may be better technique, but if there's a bump on the track it just about rips your leg off.
If there is someone who loves these things, I'll make you a deal.. If someone wants a nice, lightly scuffed set "for the street," PM me!
Otherwise, buyer beware.
You just don't know what a good puck should feel like. I have used the A&Gs since the first batch they made and absolutely love them. I'll take em off your hands (are you coming to Trackoholics?).
They do have a bit of drag, but that's what I look for in terms of feel and they have never bounced like the plastic ones do (nearly broke my knee bouncing off a curbing with a set of Dianese pucks). It's chocolate and vanilla I guess . . .
