Interesting. As I've known Vibram soles for years, as being excellent all round, especially for wear. The one area that the Vibram Block was/is notorious for, is its total lack of grip on wet rock/stone/brick.

Totally agree, the old vibram was too hard for good grip on shiny surfaces, great apart from that. If they have addressed that problem they will be excellent.

Would also be interested in which boot you're fitting them to.

I have a local cobbler that replaces my old soles with a vibram logger sole once they have worn out. It lasts far longer than my original sole did. the gripping issue on wet or polished surfaces is still an issue though.
