I have read some positive comments on the Metal Masters, as well as some negatives. (I believe they were even referred to as “cheap” in one thread.) I was hesitant to get them, and actually wanted the Axxis Deluxe Plus pads, which seemed to be getting universal praise, but the parts place I went to did not have them, thus the Metal Masters.

So far, they are silent. I used only brake paste on the backs. My calipers do not have spring plates or pins, so all pads will shift a bit within them. However, I am not hearing any sqeal or other noise.

The Porterfields sound great – I have read nothing but praise here and on other forums, but they are twice the cost of Metal Masters (I paid $60.00 for the set).
