Anyone tried the rebel carbons?

How stiff are they compared to, say, the charmoz?

The suggested used on scarpa's website seems to suggest that they should be a bit better for winter climbing than the charmoz, but they still seem to be rated as B2....

Is the Rebel Ultra (which definitely seems to be aimed at winter climbing) different other than the crampon toe lug and built in gaiter?

In case anyone else is interested, I found this comment on Dane's blog:

The sole on the Carbon is def stiffer than the LS trango S (or the Scarpa Charmoz) but not quite as stiff as the LS extreme, although close. Comfortable to walk in for sure but with a ton of edging ability and support for front pointing. Have yet to try them with a rigid crampon but excellent with Grivel AT and flex bar."
