any thoughts on invisible spring hinge?

We would like hidden hinges for our kitchen cabinet doors. The euro hinge doesn't fit. Rockler suggested the invisible spring hinge as a possibility. Anyone have any thoughts or experience with it? Need to decide between the invisible spring hinge for a concealed look or the regular semi concealed hinge.

RE: any thoughts on invisible spring hinge?

I don't know, it looks kind of light-duty.
When you say "the euro hinge doesn't fit" I wonder if you just have not yet located the proper type of euro hinge; they are made for almost every fitment imaginable, but it takes a lot of technical know-how sometimes to determine which hinge to buy. And some manufacturer's websites are useless to help a layman figure it out; Blum's site, for example is byzantine.
All the euro hinges must have a 1 1/4" hole bored near the edge of the door to be imstalled. If that's holding you back, you can buy a jig/bit set for less than $20.
