Default Rear Brake Strength

Does anyone else feel the power of the rear brake on their 18/19 EC to be a bit under gunned. It takes a fair bit of foot force to lock up which is both good and bad. The pads appear to be bedded evenly.
I'm leaning towards throwing some sintered metal pads in and seeing if i like them better.

Mine are piss weak like my road bikes, I'm not even sure I can lock mine up(can't say I've tried as I'm not a huge back brake user). How good are they supposed to be

If you fit sintered can you chime back in with some feedback please?

The pedal didn't feel spongy so I hadn't bled them. I did just then though as it takes zero effort and there could be a slightly firmer feel from the lever.
I'll report back once I go for a ride.

My 18 XC 300 felt a bit weak until I bled them and now they are great.
