I need pads to make my metal drifter unresponsive as well as a nice size a bearing to help it play well. What do i get?

Comes in size a and keeps string from touching the response

12mm Silicone is what you want

For the same price though you can get a speedaholic which plays better in my opinion but it’s not metal of course

I know the konkave bearing is one of the best bearings on the market but i just dont have the money. any others?

If you can find a size a center trac it might work
