Products Used:

Weaknesses: Detent face texture

Review: (Strength) Color
Kila offers their detents in several colors, to match any scheme you want. They even have different gloss and dust options.

(Strength) Easy to install
All it takes is a flat-tip screwdriver to install and remove the detents, no hex wrench required.

(Weakness) Detent face texture
The detents I received have a very rough face, and feel like they have been sandblasted. I'd prefer if a detent was going to claim that it was "soft on paint", that it actually be soft. At least not rough.

(Weakness) Sharp edges
These detents were only installed for two games: The edges of the screwdriver slot are so sharp that they kept scratching my fingers and catching my jersey when I bring my hand forward. Normally I would have no problem sanding them down a bit, but it would look really bad when I ruined the anodizing.

(Weakness) Price
They're just detents. Seriously. I only have these things because they were given to me, and they are now sitting unused in my toolbox.
Conclusion: Zero performance difference, and the edges are sharp. If you really want to change the color of your detents, I'm not stopping you, but I will suggest that there are better ways to spend $25.

"Soft on paint" is a reference to the ammount of force that it puts on the ball, most of the Kila Detent systems utilize a smooth, self lubricating magnetic piston. If the detent is rough or sharp, you may have gotten a defect detent. Kila honors their warranty so just contact them and send it back.

As other detent system are lower price they some of them dont offer even a complete detent you must use stock parts to have a complete detent and stock detents aren't much cheaper.

Zero perfomance gains is an invalid arguement, these are soft on paint, they do last, and do exactly what they say they do.
