I had one for the while, they are not problematic (I didn't care much for the pot itself, however). Functionaly they're sound, and do a superb job, though many know I prefer sasame (clay mesh screen).
I don't understand the need for the complete 360 band, though. An ita ami, like the one in Rishi's wangata dobin, does the same job just as well with less material.
