I'm on Spookys and have looked closely at the Froglegs, and I'm not sure you'd be able to tell the difference in performance -- Henry's Bikes (where I got my Spookys a couple of years ago) told me that Spooky as a company was the byproduct of a falling out between some folks at Empella, and that the first shipment of Spooky brakes they received actually had a few pairs of Froglegs in it!

Of course, I've not ridden the Empellas, so would defer to anyone who's tried both.

Cheers!
