I have a pair. For me there has a been a fairly decent learning curve/adjustment period. The main issue is I had to have the right boot stretched a ton around the toe as it was killing my foot. The pronounced pitch is also differant than what I'm used to (coming from Nike Flexlite 12s). You have to change your stance a bit to maximize their potential. I do like the weight and fit through (now that their have been adjusted). Honestly, probably too much skate for a player of my ability but I was in the market for a new pair, had some money to burn, etc.....
