Default Shim kit ?

Has anyone used the new shocktech shim get and if so how well does it work?
They claim each shim raises your fps by 10fps. Please let me know if you have used one of these kits.

I talked to Otter about this once upon a time. At the end of the discussion we both agreed that if you have a spring kit, a shim kit really isn't necessary. Especially since you have a velocity adjuster.

Agreed...I personally wouldn't trust that my FPS went up or down just by changing a shim, too dangerous.
