Cobra EAI rim?

Anyone have experience with this rim? Garbage or decent?
Im interested in the 32mm version, not the super deep one.
Just looking for a decent all black rim for a rear and need a braking surface. Its actually for my geared road bike.
Anyone have any insight on these?

no experience at all, but at 540g in 32mm i'm sure you realize that they are quite heavy. i wonder how long the brake bed ano will last if conditions are anything but clean/dry?

My LBS was giving me this option for a rim I needed too. He had one in stock that he was building up for a customer. The look and feel was pretty good. The black is a gloss and the only thing i didnt like about them was that you could see a definite weld right where they join. Thats all i am able to say about those rims. Oh but those were the deeper rims...i dont know if the build will be the same for the 32's
