    Playboy, you got a good deal on them at 12 something... I like them, but I agree with printer, by themselves, I didn't see a lot of difference, the advantage for me, id they allow me to run doubles now(double hi-lifts bogged my machine down) which is the saving grace for my Surfer.. They don't load the engine as much, and when doubled with the hi-lifts, they give an absolutely beautiful cut..and make a sweet "turbine like" sound:D

    I run doubles now with high lifts on the bottome and gators on top.
