Experience with reynolds 853?

Anyone here have any experience with a frame made of 853? My last BMX was swiped and its time to find a new one.

Kink's original Jim C. frame (if I remember correctly), and the earlier Specialized S-Works freestyle frames were 853.

Eastern frames use Reynolds tubing...
