In my experience, EE brakes are every bit as good or better than Red on my Reynolds Assault / Attack clinchers and Reynolds blue pads. I'm within a couple of kilos to your weight.
But, EE brakes at over $600 are nowhere near the same league as the Ultegra, KCNC, and Planet X brakes at ~$150-250.
I've only used Ultegra's out of that lot but like mentioned before, they just work. They are definitely heavy but provide good stopping power and modulation. I've heard the same thing about KCNC brakes but I've been wanting to try out those Planet X brakes (or the same brakes under various names). The only issue I have with them is the design of the QR. Seems like a pain in the ***.
