Tern Kinetix Pro wheelset, user feedback?

hi, anyone here with real world usage and experience with the newer Tern Kinetix Pro 406 wheelset with the bladed SAPIM spokes and nipples. How reliable--trueness, durability--are they?

So...

...no one here has used these things?



I managed to pick up a new pair at a very decent price ($335). On the fence about whether to keep or flip.

Thor, you sell these, don't you?

I haven't used them. Always thought the bang for buck ratio was too low. What ERD are these? Looks like 451mm. What do the individual wheels weigh sans QRs?

Sure, these days with the likes of Mialo, Litepro, etc. one can get a basic wheelset for a third of the cost of these. These are not about value.

These are 406, and weigh 491/657 grams sans QR.
