Does anyone have experience with the prior gen (before they switched to Praxis rings) S-Works chainrings, how does the shift quality compare to DuraAce and Praxis rings?

It's the S-Works 'Team' chainring set that's supposedly extra stiff

In order of shift quality:

1. Dura Ace
2. Praxis
3. S Works Team.

Thanks. Is it a substantial difference in shift quality between the three?

Each is pretty good, but Dura Ace is outstanding.

As I recall the S-Works rings weren't stiff enough to work satisfactorily with the Sram Red Yaw front derailleur so Specialized had to ship their Red bikes with Sram rings. Still used their own rings for Shimano equipped bikes though.
