I thought the Hawk HPS might be a good alternative, however, after some research, they seem to me not much better than the Axxis Deluxe pads, which are junk IMO.
I will have to still do some more research on the HPS pads...

I noticed the Akebono's had a huge amount of positive reviews. It doesn't matter what you look at, there will always be someone who has a negative opinion of a product. The majority of the opinions are positive with a few negatives, even though several of those reported higher marks after giving them a chance.

??? You're judging the HPS's after one thread? You kill me sometimes Jason. There could be 1,000 positive threads about something, but you'll make a decision about one negative one. You choose the most random threads to let form your opinion. Have you had the Axxis Deluxe? Is that how you came to the opinion they are junk?
