Sorry for my curiosness! :)

Is there other alternative for friction stickers?
I’ll buy a pair of speed beetles.
but i buy some friction stickers. (Maybe 50, here is just 4$=200 i think?)

Or recess the speed beetles with silicone but make it not “flushed” Like YYJ Legecy…(just level or more higher than the surface with the “Digged” surface that you make…)

Question…

-Is the Speed Beetle surface is sufficient for silicone recessing?

-As long as it is a Silicone Sealant then it’s ok to apply it right?

(I won’t buy Raider or Sunset’s, because it is pretty expensive and i want to try speed beetle’s for looping, because I’m starting 2A, Thanks For The Tips Jayyo!  :D)

Just stick with Friction Stickers if they are that cheap there.


#3

there are also silicone pads that require a less extreme recess. I also have weird response pads for my fhz that are very thick. They are tan and you might want to look into those!


#4

Friction and Silicone Stickers will both work, but recessing might be interesting. It will allow you to put any type of pad/flowable sili in there (I don’t know how it’ll work on a speed beetle though.)

Kots of pads are made in that size. But the regular duncan stickers are supposed to be a little more aggressive (responsive) which is good for looping. You can try all the pads you want, but the Duncan stickers should be better fitted for looping… they just need a lot of replacements.
