i recently went to the LBS to pick up kool stop salmon brake pads but they did not have them in stock. he did have a set of jagwire reds that he sold me for $1 a pad. it sounded like a great deal but after i got them mounted, i started to second guess it. they sound somewhat "rough" on the rim...

anyone have experience with jagwire red zone pads?

are they easy on the rims surface?
