Default When to replace Damper Rubber

How do you know when is the time to replace the damper rubber? Is the Align damper any good?

Thank you.

I just am starting to build my SE V2 but I hear these are really good. They last longer and give better dampening.

As the dampers degrade, you will notice your cyclic getting mushy. When they get real bad.....It will become hard to track the blades. The stock dampers will actually get torn up so give them a visual inspection.

The Truebloods are great dampers. They are very stiff and last a LONG time. The Align dampers arn't so good.
