Well, I was being a little dramatic. However, they may get you down the river, but I don't trust them--had too many sketchy experiences, including broken/bent shafts. I have yet to break a cataract shaft or blade--although I've had shark bites a couple of times. So, it's not about cuteness and all about an opinion, which is worth .02 and that may be overly inflated.
