Whisky Parts Carbon Forks

Don't see much discussion on this forum about Whiskey Parts' line of carbon forks. Specifically the No 9 thru axle cross fork. MSRP seems a little pricey, but I'm seeing more marked down prices than I do for Enve. Anyone have experience with Whisky Parts?

They've been specced on Foundry bikes for a long time and they have a great reputation. I wouldn't hesitate to use one.

Whiskey Parts, and Foundry, are QBP in house brands. Other QBP in house brands include Surly, All City, and Salsa. QBP makes good stuff, and their brands are all well respected for the niches they fill and the products they make.

I'm a canti hold-out so no experience with the No 9. But the Whisky No 7 on my CX bike has been great. Good weight, excellent construction, nice finish, and very stiff (no canti brake judder even when using a steerer mounted cable hanger).
