Which brakes are less hassle, have better stopping power, better quality:

Hayes MX-2
Hayes Sole

Any pros/cons or comparisons would be very informative.

In other words, which of the two would you get and why? Thank you much!

THANK YOU, neil502! That link gave pretty okay reviews on the mechanical MX2. Now I have a better idea, considering someone said that the Sole wasn't that great. I just didn't know about the MX2. I appreciate your help!
