I think its a nice hub very good bearing with precise job.
Its weight the same as claimed. So very good for weight saving.
I build it with my Zipp 280 rim.
The result is 998 gram wheelset! with 18 spokes on front and 28 spokes on rear, Its a good wheel for competition.
I will test it for durability and let you know for furture report.

do you own a set? if so for how long, please tell us about them and your experience with them.

they are expensive, but i think the question in everyones mind here is are they worth it. they look impressive, but will they last? would you use them everyday, or are they a race day only hub?

how does the hub feel? the engagements; does it engage quickly? has it slipped on you. is a silent hub, or do you hear it engage everytime.

do you use them everyday?

Why not an American Classic Micro Hub? It's only 6gr. heavier and much cheaper.

I have about 1000km on my Soul-Kozak hubs and so far haven't had any problems (most of it was wet weather). The freehub mechanism is a little louder than Campy hubs which was annoying after using American Classic which are pretty quiet. The only other thing I have noticed is after they broke in they have a little side to side play at the rim, though it's not enough to rub the brake pads(max of ~1mm each side).

My front hub has side play since the first day, and the rear hub sometimes makes some 'klink' noises when the pawls engage the freewheel...I'll test them thoroughly before taking them to a race...
