Fortress Metal Framing

Anyone used new the Fortress framing yet? If so, so was it to install?

I installed Irondeck before Trex bought it, and wasn't impressed. It looks like Trex made some much needed changes, but I never had the opportunity (or bravery) to try it again.

Fortress looks like the installation would be pretty easy, and I like that everything is the same color. I'm sure it's $$$. My rep was telling me about it, but didn't really know pricing yet.

Worst part of the metal framing I used was the stairs. It doesn't look like Fortress has figured that one out either.

If anyone has used it, let me know your thoughts. With lumber getting worse and worse, it may be time to start pushing metal.
