Yes, you are guessing. I've had these on my bike since April 2011, using standard v-brake levers (Avid SD7). They replaced stock Tektro mini-vs.

I ride about 7000kms/year (three seasons) -- a mix of road (including stop/start in traffic), MUP, and non-technical off-road. They have never once 'grabbed'. They are powerful, smooth, and easy to modulate. I'd say that qualifies as "perfectly well."
