So I happen to have one pair of new John's BSR Black foams which are 40-45 duro. So that should help because the hardness differential is more similar to the old blue/green from back in the day. My problem is that after taking 10 years away from this hobby I've forgotten so much. I'm fortunate to have you guys and this forum to help me cure my frequent brain farts.
Hey Tom,

I originally looked at the Jaco charts too; and, found no help there.

At least John's BSR and RC4Less gives you some alternatives. And BigBull's suggestion of trying the RC4Less foams with more rubber content may be a winner for your situation.

FYI...We spray root beer on our asphalt track to prep it. Guessing that the basketball players would have something to say about any track prep.
