So, the one thing I did not anticipate in having a problem with these was the Q factor. Turns out my knees like my feet next to the crank arm, and these do not offer that. Unfortunately, my knee was getting worse rather than used to the new position, so these have to go.

Price: $250 shipped
Comes with heavy and normal springs, cleats with float (has wear) and new zero float cleats.

Here's my take on them:

The Good:
Very light
Feel very stable while riding
No hotspot issues
Confidence grew in not clipping out once I got the strong springs

The Annoyances:
Even though I can clip in right away 90% of the time, that 10% I don't clip in right away is usually when I'm dealing with cars or a red light.
Sensitive to dirt, which can lead to noise

Overall, these are really nice and well thought out. Having the heavy springs in them eased most of my concern with clipping out accidentally. I rode 600 miles in 2 weeks on them, did a few competitive group rides which involved sprint finishes and overall never really noticed them (in a good way). Being in the middle of LA and dealing with lights a lot, they did get annoying when I needed to make a last second move and I couldn't clip in immediately. That's my main gripe about them.
