I dig 'em. No problems. I'm also of the school of the Rainey Super Loops and I loved those. Still have them.
The toe plate (black part between the riser and anti-ice plate) is weak on the T/9s. I was skiing at a resort in 40 degree weather and cracked the aluminum at all 4 screw holes. One ripped all the way through, bending and breaking the plate beyond repair. It's 40 bucks for a new toe plate, and I'm going to replace it with the normal stainless Targa version instead or the aluminum.
