Has anyone out there tried the new CX business class sleeper seats? One comment I heard was that the seats sloped downwards and were not as comfortable as they should be. I would like to hear more about them.

But due to the angle of the plane in flight, your feet are not sloping 'downwards'. In fact, with BA's flat bed, when fully reclined, your head is actually lower than your feet.
I haven't tried CX's seat, but I can tell you that I absolutely abhor BA's Flat Bed in their Club World. Give me back my normal Business Class seat. It's like sleeping on a plank of wood! And it's so narrow that one cannot move.

Thank you GuyBetsy1 for your comment. I have heard negative comments on the BA Club World Flat Bed too, namely too narrow. I have not heard anyone mentioning the levelling of the bed. Also, most people I know who have tried BA Club World said that they disliked their 'lounge atmosphere' with people facing each other. I shall see for myself the CX new Business Class seats later next month on my way to Amsterdam.
