Have Salmon Supra 2s on one bike and Salmon Eagles (same pad design and rubber, different mounting hardware) on another. The salmon rubber is an improvement over most others. I get better wet braking, fine dry braking, minimal rim wear and minimal squeal. I have also tried the KoolStop Mountain pads with Salmon rubber. I prefer the Supra over the Mountain. The Supras are easier to adjust (because they are shorter and not curved) and squeal less than the Mountains.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
