Aztec Mag 2.0 review?

Hi guys,
I have these shimano 105 brake pads. They are getting pretty old and losing stopping power. I have adjusted my brakes the best I can and still pretty disappointed with their performance. I want to upgrade to new pads, I've heard kool stops are great, but it seems I need to get shoes before I can get those.

Has anyone used the Aztec Mag 2.0? I got a certificate for Amazon so I was thinking about getting these. http://www.amazon.com/Aztec-Mags-Roa...472434&sr=1-14

Recommendations? Options? Does this mean I can only use Aztec pads in those holders in the future?
Thanks in advance!

I think they use proprietary pads.

You can get shimano style pad holders pretty cheap. I know jagwire makes some. Get those, use those pads that come with them or swap out for koolstops.

I think Jagwire Pro/BSR pads or Bontrager BSR pads are the best bang for the buck. Everything Aztec I have ever used on my road bikes in terms of brake parts has been truly awful and expensive. I just replaced a set of "perfectly good" (they never were good to begin with, however) Aztecs with some Jagwire Pro's, the difference is night and day.
