Only reviews I can find do not seem so auspicious compared to BD or DMM. The reviews in the link below are generally "other cams are better, but these will function". It's not clear to me which version of the Kouba cams these are, they have (had?) a flex stem line and rigid U-stem line and used to manufacture them for other brands.

More reviews, after changing search terms. Still not clear if reviews are for same cams as in ebay listing. For link below, there are several reiviews that basically say:

1) Tend to walk, possibly a lot;
2) Smaller camming sweet spot (range of not over-cammed, not under-cammed);
3) Falls held unless rock fractured or placement was otherwise bad.

Kouba was the manufacturer for Rock Empire, Singing Rock, and some other Euro brands.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
