Man...just played in the Future Legends and these are amazing! I like these better than the JC3 because the outrigger is huge and I felt totally safe. Traction was freaking beast, even on the dusty court (I wiped out of habit but I would've been fine without wiping I think). The cushioning...man...the cushioning was so freaking awesome. Bouncy, up there with Boost from the D-Rose 6 for me (when the Boost was good in those). Low to the ground, but bouncy and firm as well. I felt so confident playing these. My ONLY complaint is that it feels a LITTLE bulky and not one-to-one as much. I did play with and without the shroud and the shroud DOES make a difference. I will play with lacing setups to see if a slightly tighter fit will help with one-to-one feel. It wasn't BAD, I just noticed that something was on my foot while playing.
I would be interested to see how the cushioning height difference compares with the Rare Metal. I am scared to get those because of the traction, as well as the Jetlon Plus being slightly thinner (I tend to bottom cushions out pretty quick). Any comparisons from people who have both and have played in both for a while?
