I have used the BB shell in question. I intend to use more in the future. I believe they are Haden blanks that are cut to the Nervex pattern, It just so happens that I recently happened upon an original Nervex BB shell and found that the angles are not compatible with current geometry. It could of course be blacksmithed into submission but I opted for the already conforming Haden shell as the center of my replica of a 1960ish Masi Special track bike for myself. I say go with the better quality and comforming Haden.

Can't decide wheather they're less filling or wheather they taste great; but either way they're better!
