I anybody using Callahan brake rotors?

I may be able to buy some for a good price and I'd like to know if anyone has had problems. They appear to be manufactured in China and some other boards (not Porsche specific) seem skeptical.

Thanks for any input.

All seriousness aside...

rotors are rotors. Yes, some of the really expensive ones have some fancy stuff done to them, but IMHO the basic ones are all pretty much the same

Let the flaming begin....

I'm using R1 concepts drilled rotors (cheap). They said they were zinc coated. Well after about 6,000 miles they still look great. The hats are still silver and the face doesn't have a lip. I also got some ceramic pads in the kit. They produce no dust, I mean none. Also in the kit came all new hardware. So for the $250 I spent on 4 rotors, 8 pads and the hardware I'd say great deal. How long will they last is any ones guess. But so far so good.
