Steelex turning tools Opinions

Have any of you guys used these? Are they any good? i was in a local family owned woodworking store and they had a 6 piece set of the Steelex D2304 turning chisels there. they look a lot like the Benjamin best from Penn state. Are these worth looking at or should i stay away.
thanks for all the great information this site brings.

I have a set for 8 years now, they have turned countless furniture pieces, hold an edge well, sharpen well, no complaints.
