Fair. I have only built a couple of sets of spokes with them and it was a number of years ago. The single butted spokes with the heavier guage at the hub are a good idea I suppose. The threading is not as good as DT or top Japanese spokes. So they bind a little more than necessary when you are building the wheel. No breakages but I don't know if I ride any one set of wheels enough to evaluate the endurance of spokes anymore.
