Looking at removing some weight off the bike, and came across these on eBay.

Is there any experience on the forum with this brakes below?

I owned some once. They cost me £35 from Planet X. Unfortunately they stopped selling them. They work well enough, not as good as Shimano or SRAM, but better than something like Tektro.

I do remember seeing a them on PlanetX some time ago.

So these aren't a bad braking system to use and safe? I currently run 6800 callipers but fancy a different look and to remove some weight off the bike.

I have the CNC versions which are even lighter.

You can find them as "July" oder "July 21" brakes, they're made by a company called Mr.Control, and also come branded as Fouriers etc.

They work very well for me.

I have them on my Addict. Didn't get the CNC versions but they are still plenty light. They definitely sacrifice some performance for the weight. However they aren't dangerous. Just don't expect too much of them.

Works very well. I got the cnc ones.

Coming from shimano brakes though it might disappoint slightly. I've never used shimano but I hear they are good.
