Default proline foams

what is the difference in the 2 somewhat new proline foams the Blue closed cell foam and the black evo foam?

i have been out of the loop on proline foams with just running AKA foams in all my tires. but would like to know what is up with these new proline ones

Of the two, you'd want to go with the Black Evo2 foams.

They're a little softer and have more compressability to them.

The PL Blue's are very dense. I only intend on using the 1-set I have at a smooth,indoor grooved track. I wouldn't use them on any outdoor track.

I emailed PL when they came out and the response was that they had better success using the Evo 2 black for the most part and that it was better on rough tracks.

The Evo2 black foams are also a bit lighter so that's a plus. They are good foams! Super light weight and seem to be a good density.

They are very close to AKA foams. They are a bit lighter and they are shaped to fit proline tires obviously.

A tip for the acetone deal, if you are doing it just to save the rims and don't care about the tires, cut the foams out of the tires before you acetone them. Saves them from a lot of unneeded chemical exposure.
