I know people who have used them, and they seem OK, but you will need to use springs made for them since they are quite a bit heavier.

The second time that you have to shim them, they should be replaced and a full valve job performed (valves, springs, guides, seats, any worn parts, and shop machining). That can happen at 20 hours or hundreds of hours. Keep the air clean, the revs reasonable, and they should last a long time.
