I haven't tried them yet, except briefly at NAMM, and they didn't stand out as better than the Private Jack, but I'll have to get some in and do some further comparisons.

The Two Rock boys have heard a bunch of samples recently and were blown away. They are now content with speakers and have ordered many. Great ones for less money, what a concept. They tested a bunch and found them stellar.

I just got my Red Fang this morning and A/B'd it with a new Celestion Alnico Blue in my Traynor YCV20WR (2-EL84's). My immediate impression is that the Red Fang is very, very close to the Alnico Blue. They are similar in every respect across the tonal sprectrum, and I only detected subtle differences in the high end.
Just out of curiousity, when you say A/B'd in your Traynor, do you mean play for a while with one speaker, then remove the first speaker, install the second speaker, and then play thru that one? If so, it's much harder to hear the differences with that much time between samples. My first impression was the same as yours, but switching speakers within seconds made it very easy to hear significant differences. Memory of tonal nuances is not extremely accurate! I think if you were to quickly switch between them, playing the identical chord, riff, or double stop, the difference becomes much more obvious.
