Definitely a great feeling, responsive and enjoyable to play V-Drum cymbal. Of course, it feels very different to an actual hi-hat as it has slightly less resistance and bounce back on the stick but I actually found this to be enjoyable - Once I got back on my acoustic kit, I found my feel and speed on the hats had improved since playing the CY-5.
Anyway, really nice quality for the most part. These things to do take a beating and other than the snare, they probably get hit the most and hardest on my TD-11K kit. I've had one go faulty on me after almost a year but to be quite honest, at this price and with the amount I play (i'm quite a hard hitting drummer), I'd put this down to general wear and tear. Good stuff roland!
