Hayes sole disc brakes

I have Hayes Sole hydraulic disc brakes on my newly purchased bike. I was wondering on the hayes scale of quality, where these brakes stand. For example the shimano xt is better than the deore. Are my brakes low end hayes, middle, or what?

According to the Hayes website, the sole brakes are at the bottom of all their hydraulic brakes . The site claims that they are mainly XC brakes. Here's a chart to help you out: http://www.hayesdiscbrake.com/produc...kupchart.shtml

Had 'em.

Had a bunch of problems, and to make a long PITA story short - my NRS now sports Avid Juicy 7s.

I noticed a lot of the 2006 Kona's have them on there.
