I recently got a Royale in a trade, and it came with CBC Pads installed that stuck out much too far into the gap (I was informed of this before the trade), so I popped them out with the intention of putting in flowable silicone. I know that the Royale comes stock with flowable, so I was very surprised at how shallow the response groove is. I put in as little silicone as possible and let it cure for a full 24 hours, and even after playing with it for a couple hours, it is still fairly responsive and extremely snaggy. The silicone is perfectly flush with the gap, which I think may be the problem, but that is as little as I could imagine using for such a shallow response groove. If I would’ve put any less silicone, I’m afraid I wouldn’t have even covered the entire groove. Is there any alternative to flowable in the Royale? I was thinking something along the lines of Thin IrPads, but just wanted to hear what you guys had to say first.

Flowable silicone works on just about anything these days.
The pre-release Royales had rather shallow recesses. I’ll see if I can find out what is recommended. I have had good results with flowable in them anyways. I have a pre-release model.
