Thinking about getting 2 sets for my Kona but they'd be a big outlay so want to make sure they work well and are durable.
And any other brake choices similar to them you can suggest?

They work well. They are easy to adjust.
Mine squealed but it may have been my setup.

I have some, funnily enough on a Kona as well. They are as others have said already - easy to set up and well powerful, plus they look especially cool mated with Love levers. Before that I used some Avid Mag's (the copper ones) that were also nice to use, and very light, they just didn't match the levers….

I also inherited a set of Avid 1D's on a bike I bought which I planned to change, but I've been impressed enough to keep them, they work in a similar way to the Pauls i.e you adjust the spring tension externally. I think that they're pretty cheap to buy if cost is a factor :)
