Default pro line foams

this may sound like a dumb question but im not really sure of the correct answer. are all of the original grey proline foams the same density? i have a set of revolvers with the standard grey foam that one has blown out. and i dont want to buy a new set but i have a set of garbage proline tires that are xtr compound.
so is it just the compound of the rubber that is different or is the density of the foams different too?
thanks and sorry for the dumb question

The gray foams are all the same. Well at least they are supposed to be. Didn't really turn out that way as you could get one pair of tires with two totally different firmness foams in them. In other words, they are VERY inconsistent. Hell, you could even get one foam that harder and softer spots to it. Garbage foams IMO. I'd just replace the whole set with a better foam.
