+1 not so much with the new red foams (they are good right out of the bag) but i think personally that the black foams actually get better once they have been used. when i used to run aka tires i would re-use the black foams 4 or 5 times before i would finally trash them

+1, the black foams get better on the 2nd and 3rd use. I can't say for the red as all of mine are still on their first use.

I've reused the reds with no loss in performance. I'm not sure about using them 4 or 5 times like the black, as they do break in and start to break down quicker than the black. I've reused a couple of the black grooved sets 6 to 8 times and they still feel pretty good, to some it may be a little much.
