Default Re: KickPort D-Port?

That might create some create some nice, focused sounds but as often as a lot of guys change heads, it might be a pain to constantly be installing them.
The D-Ports are the smaller tom ports, if I'm not mistaken. I would be worried about how much they would dampen the head, but I always buy heads with built-in dampening, so I could just get heads without. I would be more than happy to reinstall them on new heads if they would make the kind of difference that they do for a kick drum

EDIT: I did a little more research and found that they got rid of the name D-Port, and just started calling them the FX series. It says they were to be released in 2013, but I can't find them for sale anywhere
