It will cookie cut a perfect plastic film disk and this will take up and play you have. You can experiment with different thickness bags to get the feel you want. If they end up a little tight squeeze the side with needle nose pliers and they will free up.
I'll give this a try before buying the RPM ball cups.

What P/N were the titanium pivot pins, I'm after some of those to shed a few grammes.

AdrianM says that Titanium is actually 6% heavier than aluminum...so according to AdrianM- by using the Ti stuff you'll be adding weight.

Thats true if you re replacing Aluminum with Ti. However, Ti is half the weight of steel so if you replace screws, hinge pins and turnbuckles you are saving a lot of weight.
