The soft close is awesome. There is a small amount of tug to open the drawer, this could be because the slides are new, or the drawer is not super heavy. I got the 100lbs slides, the drawers are custom made of 1/2 MDF, sides and bottom, which makes it heavy but probably only 10-15lbs, maybe once the drawer is full the tug won't be so apparently. Besides that, this is still 5 stars, and much cheaper than what you get at the home stores. P.S. absolutely no instructions, so do a search or if you know how to install you will be ok.
My hubby was happy to get these slides for drawers he was making in his workshop-he was especially happy about the price- the quality is great -and really compare to more expensive slides-
