its about the same firmness, but a different material....its smooth like a molded foam, but has the density of a closed cell foam, its weird

its also much much lighter than any other foam on the market

In my opinion it's a bit softer. I would almost compare it to a AKA foam on it's second use. What I mean by that is using the same foam with a second set of rubber. At our track a lot of people are going to the Proline foam because our track is a bit bumpier and the softer foam helps absorb the bumps. But a set of AKA foams on there second or third set of rubber works the same. And in my opinion the AKA foams last longer because they seem to get better the more you use them. So I recommend for people not reusing AKA foams to do so and see if it works the same for them. Many people on here have reported the same thing.
