Default Stiffer/Better Dampners?

So I wear out the dampners really fast.... About 100 flights or less and they get very soft. They're pretty darn soft to begin with, with the all metal head and the increased mass it doesn't help. (don't talk to me about excessive bling, I haven't broken a single head component in 400+ flights. Even my MH swash is still PERFECT with no slop. Can't say that about the plastic).

I think the dampners work great stock, but with brushless it's not enough for me. I'm hard on the cyclic.

Does KBDD plan to make any? Is there a substitute?

I've tried the thicker brass washers that came with the MH head, and ended up going back to two stock washers on each side. Helps alot to stiffen up the head, but it just needs more.

Use these instead of the stcok dampners. They are much harder and I use them on all my conversions.

I use the stock dampners but with extra washers, I took off the step of the stock brass washers and added 1 per side.

So its 2 washers per side instead of the one.

These are by far the best solution. They are quite a bit stiffer than the stock set, and i have yet to wear out my original set from months ago, on any of my helis. They also seem to tighten up the grips and hub eliminating any slop. I also include them in my customer builds because they are just that good.
