I prefer AKA. Proline is very inconsistent on foams.

If AKA Soft CityBlocks work well for you; try PL M3 Calibers for comparison. In all honesty, I'd try JConcepts Subcultures in Blue or Green. Blue is like AKA soft/PL M3; Green is more like AKA SuperSoft/PL M4.


I prefer AKA and JConcepts and have almost totally gotten away from Proline except for Recoils.

That not all there foams hold up. My first set of revolvers the foams still feel good. My second set with 3 quals and a short main softer than heck and just feel like they do not fill the tire and support it well. I am making the switch to jconcepts soon though.

well that but if you buy a pack of foams or just take the foams out of unmounted tires the foams usually vary in size slightly
