I was looking at their 1/3 set for my ESM 195 that is 107" span. I wanted plenty of float length for that long fuse.

You can always make a glassed foam set.

Has anyone used the leading edge devices for any extended amount of flying time. How do they compare to not using them, have you noticed any good or bad results from using them?

Not yet, but I am getting ready to put them on. The only thing I have heard that do help keep the wing flying longer thus reducing wing drop/tip stall, and that they slow the roll rate a bit. So unless you are going to do rolling circles with the plane all day there is no disadvantage.

60" deep "V" with the flat. Looks like it will be a good setup.
I also ordered a Timber. I couldn't take all of the positives without joining in.
I'm weak- no other excuse fits
I have a GP61 or a DLE40 twin needing a place to hang out. I'll have to check the cowl width for the twin.
