I had an older generation of the spyre's and had a lot of issue with rubbing and overall crappy stopping power. I was ready to crush them in a press when I decided to replace the cable and housing first just to make sure there was not something else going on. The existing cable and housing were new. Come to find out there was a small area in the housing that was catching the cable and created a little spur. Once I put the new canle\housing on, it performed so much better. I eventually sold that bike a couple of years later and the new owner is still using them.
