The brake performance was transformed - easy to lock up at almost any
speed and absolutely no fade that I could detect in normal use. I may
have imagined it, but they perhaps felt a little 'soft' on the first
use of the day, as if there was something to be rubbed off the surface

probably have made a big difference to my well worn setup as well....
