Proving grounds @ 450-550?

How is the proving grounds at current flows? Never ran it and slightly interested to see something new. My gut tells me that high water big T, clear creek, boulder creek etc would be time better spent, but the call of the new has me wondering?

Heard some crappy things about the run, but most of the comments were that it needed more water.

Ian, I would like to paddle it again if you don't object and decide to go paddle it. I am not qualified for SSV until it drops back to low flows, and not Upper NSV either, at least based on the descriptions. I enjoyed Proving Grounds at about 200 cfs last year. I did enjoy high water Blackrock more, but it was still fun. I would like to paddle it with more water but haven't found a lot of people I know interested in going all that way up there when so many other runs are so high.
