I'm curious to hear some feedback from USBC competitors on the GB/5 EE. Are they all they're cracked up to be?

I didn't compete in the USBC and I also don't know how 'cracked up' the GB5s are in the States. But I'm pulling shots on one every day right now, and I really think it's great. The temps seem to be extremely stable and even though the machine still has a bit of new-machine-taste the shots are magnificent. Still room for improvement in general (like using a proper steel for the front plate) but I have no hesitations towards recommending it, at all.
