Anyone tried Redken Crystal Curls yet?

The Redken ringlet stuff didn't work for me neither did their curl line when it came out. But I am still curious. Thanks!
I've been looking for it but haven't seen it yet.

Ingreds?
I've only seen it in a little barbershop near my house, but I got a tube as my free gift from Curlmart for buying way too much stuff from them , so I expect it'll be more widely available soon.

The ingredients are: aqua/water, glycerin, alcohol denat., sorbitol, propylene glycol, oleth-10 phosphate, triethanolamine, carbomer, diglycol/chdm/isophthalates/sip copolymer, phenoxyethanol, hydroxypropyl guar, methylparaben, parfum/fragrance, potassium hydroxide, ethylparaben, disodium edta, hexyl cinnamal, hydrolyzed wheat protein, linalool, benzophenone-4, hydrolized wheat starch, citral, coumarin, ci 42090/blue 1, CI 19140/yellow 5, CI 14700/Red 4 (D7015/1).

I have mixed feelings about it so far; I got nice hold and curl formation the first time I tried it, but the second time I got a massive amount of frizz. I haven't written it off yet because I'm not 100% positive it was responsible for the huge frizz, but so far I'd rank it behind BioSilk Rock Hard Gelee.
2c; some 3a

Those ingreds are nearly identical to Redken Solid Water. I know it was being repackaged so I wouldn't be surprised if this is the reincarnation of Solid Water.
I've ordered from curlmart 4 times this month and everytime I've gotten this as a freebie. I havne't tried it yet since I have so much other stuff to try. I figured if they are giving it away so much that it must not be too good
2c, 3a and 3b combined. I think anyway
Love Activate poo, Jessicurl too shea and aloeba as a leave in, Curls spiral cream(old version) and milkshake!!

Others have been so-so to yucky.

Ironically, the big-name brands (Matrix Curl Life comes to mind) have been lousy so that it seemed their freebies were intended to get the word out but were such bad products that it wasn't advantageous since so many nc.com-ers hated those products. But the smaller companies (Jessicurl, Curl Junkie, AG) who have provided samples have gotten to introduce curlies to their products and that technique has been advantageous to them.
I used it today and got a huge amount of frizz I don't think i've ever seen my hair this frizzy. So far I don't like it at all.
