Sizzix Pro Dies in the Fuse

I got my pro die and accessories on Friday.  I had very little time to play with them over the weekend, however, I did play a little.  Using the cutting plate, die, crease pad sandwich, I was able to cut medium weight chipbard perfectly.  There is no forcing the die through or anything.  The tension seems to be perfect.  I got one of the mini album dies.  It has the 3 page sizes.  I will be using them to create some of my album covers.  I hate trying to cut chipboard covers.  They always seem to end up crooked.  I have been reading about cutters that handle chipboard with no problem.  Fiskars is presenting one at CHA.  I will have to look into it.  I can not wait to get some more pro dies.  I have seen a bunch of them on sale recently.  Maybe this means there are more being released in the near future.  I wonder what Fiskars is going to come out with in the way of large dies.
