To be honest, I feel that the reviews from non bias people on the forum are more credible than mine. With that in mind, I have worked hard to get all the early sets shipped out so that forum members can test and post about them. What's funny, is that all the positive reviews are from people that paid for there foams with no discounts. The people that received free tester foams haven't even posted up about them.

I hope that helps to answer your questions some and thank you for your interest in my product.

Thanks! Definately helpful. I plan on placing an order before too long regardless, as I'm currently running the Rovers, and I can always use a better foam in them. I was just curious as to how they did with the Leopards, since they're a bit different tire as for foam requirements than others.

BTW, I really like what you've done, offering a 2 stage non-memory foam, and from the reports of quality, definately looks to be worth the money!

I tried out the 1.9 foams today. Just plain awesome in Flat Irons! I need to get another set now to try in the Rok Lox. Now I need tires to show up to put them in the 2.2.

Great Job, Nova !

The guys that received my 2.2 foams that have Leopards and were suppose to give me answers on the exact question have not. However I am learning, that for most top drivers, if something works good, they will not tell anyone. They would rather keep any advantage to themselves. If the product is a total flop, then you hear about it. So I guess no news is good news?

I should be picking up 100 sets of the 2.2 dual stage foams tonight. I still have to glue them all by hand. If I do get them, they will start shipping out tomorrow.

I will also test them in the Panther Leopards once all the orders are shipped out. I will take some video as well and post it here in this thread.

I also have Panther Leopards in stock if anyone is looking to purchase them.

How is the glued joint holding up to being muscled over wheels with a pile of weights on them? Pretty strong glue? or would you suggest cutting the center out to fit over the weights?

As far as I know it's holding up great. I have been told of one guy that ripped the inner foam trying to get them over his weights. The foam ripped, not the glue joint. The foam specific glue is very strong. That is why I am selling them pre-glued. I have used other brand foams in the past that I had to glue myself with 3M spray adhesive and they ultimately failed at the joint inside the tire. I don't want that happening with my product.

Also, the inner diameter has been increased on the new foams. It should make it much easier to mount.

I will be testing these in my leopards this weekend as well. Sorry for the delay Nova, I decided to tear down my rig at the last second.

Just bought some of the proline 2 stage foams...Wish they had taller inside foams. Definitely think these will be what I'm looking for.

I have the V1 foams and had to trim the inside to fit around the weights on my SLWs(I am the one the center started to tear). After discussing redesign dimensions with NA the V3s should be perfect. I am waiting for my V3s to get here for a full write up but the V1s work VERY well with my white rovers. With the change in dimensions we worked out for V3 they should be even better. I will be testing them in white rovers and leopards and will do a complete write up once mine arrive. All of mine will be on VP SLWs in both the 1" and 1.3 widths.

Looking forward to running them next week at Crawlapalooza.

Thanks Nova's Ark!

I finally got mine mounted up last night in some Panther Leopards. I don't have much run time yet but so far so good. I really like the feel of them. Very soft for the first bit then firm and the tires hold a sidehill great. My Leopards I put on were brand new so I need to wear them in some but I don't see myself taking them out.
