I've hiked it a couple of times, the last time was in 2004. I hiked the route from Oconee SP to Table Rock SP both times. It is a great hike with lots of camping opportunities with hammocks or tents. It was what I considered 'fast trail' at the time I hiked them in that it didn't have a lot of up and downs each day. You usually had one good tug or so each day, not like much of the AT in Georgia where it is one climb after another and wear you down if you aren't conditioned for lots of elevation changes. Most people make pretty good mileage on FT thru hikes.
