Smeding Diesel Headgaskets

Has anyone ever used the Smeding Diesel Headgaskets? I've read on the forums here that most "knock-off" brand head gaskets aren't any good but I haven't found very many opinions on the Smeding diesel head gaskets.

The price is convincing, $595 for head gaskets and ARP studs. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

funny how the term Titanium is used in both of these gaskets
neither having Titanium in them

::For Everyone Running “Black Diamond Titanium” Head gaskets::

my opinion is until someone with real credibility and experience states that gasket ( unknown ) is better than OEM

I won't hold my breath for the next two years as I sit back and watch the real world results LOL

They are just the new victor reinz gaskets. Many people are running them with good results. I have them in my engine and have installed them in vehicles at the shop with zero issues. Funny how people want to repackage something as there own.
