Very strong.
Smooth, hard to pinch yourself with them.
Surprisingly fun to mess around with.
They do work as rather thick spacers.
They're pretty difficult to coax into a cube shape if you're building a small one.
The ones I received were free of defects; all smooth and uniformly sized.
They tend to form rings when you bring them together if they aren't lined up just right at the ends. You need to build a fairly large cube if you want to overpower this tendency for edges to pop out.
Would make for fantastic experiments to demo to students if you could keep the kids from stealing them.
