( All the above is hearsay)
All sheet steel comes from a roll, so that factor is a constant. I won't comment on the chinesium factor. But if EBC are skimping on heat treatment that is an issue.

I and riding over 44 years and I use the bike everyday not a just a Sunday rider and as happy riding fast as slow as many on here will testify.
When I left for work each day I would need to hold the brakes on for a kilometer to heat the discs to get them to work and the same anytime the disc cooled down
I have been using EBC HH (recommended by EBC for their discs) also tried Organic and Kevler, discs were still shite with any pad.

Back with OEM discs and any pad works, but still use EBC HH pads
Oem or Brembo is all I would use now, thankfully Brembo now do a front disc for the Fazer600 which I will be buying shortly. However I have not had any experience with Galfer or Armstrong, but any bike I rode with them felt good with Galfer feeling slightly better than Armstrong.
Not convinced by these wavy discs, cannot see how taking bites out of a discs is a good thing

I remember talking to Wal Saunders about this, he owns PFM brakes, he buys his steel from Germany or Sweden , price depending, and it's in flat sheets for that very reason.
