    I've heard they cut good but there slow. Kinda ugly too. Everyone around here that used to use them has switched.

    They used to be slow with the old Gemini trans. system. Those days are gone. Speed may vary depending on model, but generally you are looking an advertised speed of around 11MPH. This is conservative, as we have run them at a radar detector and it ususally shows around 13MPH.
