I would like to know more about Top Echelon myself and how successful people have been using it.

We do not belong, but several recruiters I know (and have worked splits with) are members and seem very happy with it. The monthly cost and network fee per placement seem reasonable for that sort of service. I do not know exactly how they vet the members or monitor their "Ethics Enforcement" and "Policy Handbook" rules.
Most of our most successful split partners are people we have just "met" over the years in various ways and we have not had many issues regarding getting paid, etc. It's pretty easy to see if the styles jive and work well together.
