Welcome to CKR Russ!

The hotends have been working really nice after the mods, many hours on 3 with no problems and great prints. I've never owned a nice expensive hotend, so hard to compare there, but compared to the original cheap hotend, they have been great, even printing at higher temps (240c - 245c) needed for PETG filaments.
