Default Proline Foam Combo Question

Iíve got a Set of Proline BFG Mud Terrain Tires in Predator Compound. Initially I Purchased a Set Of Proline Dual Stage Foams for them. While waiting on the Slow Boat from China to bring my wheels, I Ordered a Pair of Proline Closed Cell Single Stage Foams to try in the Rear Tires, using Dual Stage up front.

Iíve Got Several other Tire Sets/Brands that Eddie at Crawler Innovations Recommended a Similar Combo of Dual and Single Stage foam set ups that have worked well.

My Question is...have any of you Guys tried this with Proline Tires/Foams?

If so how did you like the Setup?

I had this setup with Hyrax tires years ago. I didn't like the air gap in my rear tire and ended up switching the rear foams to CI 4.75 Med.

I use this setup on my TRex with Hyrax and i like it. But i tried same combo on my Capra with KLR-M an it didn' work well.
If it works or not is depending on the weight of your rig, the TRex is ~11-12lbs and the Capra ~5-6lbs.

Iíve got a complete set of Prolineís Dual Stage Foam, if I donít like it I can switch them out. I also have a set of C.I. Lil Novaís for a Set of Hyrax thatíd Probably work fine in these as well.

With the predator compound I like the single stage closed cell foams they just seem to work better. I have always had good results with the duels in the g8's
