ARB OME BP-51 Resv Shocks

I'm looking for feedback on the ARB OME BP-51 reservoir shocks...good, bad, value vs performance, that kind of stuff. I'm thinking about upgrading the shocks on my Bronco and these looked interesting...I like the compression and rebound dampening adjustability and location of the adjusters. They're fairly new to the market so thought I'd ask for opinions here first.

I didn't realize these shocks were this new; kind of hard to get user feedback on them if they've barely been released (summer/fall 2015)... This link from ARB describes them, in case anyone else is interested: http://www.arbusa.com/uploads/PDF/ne...ral_Retail.pdf

my freind Ross was the lead engineer on them and I have ridden about 1500 kilometers in a Nissan fitted with them. they work well but have similar traits to other IBP shocks. I would buy something with parts more availble if it were me but that was not your question though.
