Default Kickport FX

Has anyone in the Forum tried the new Kickport FX ports for snare and tom toms? Kickport are now also suggesting mounting the 2 inch FXs on the batter head of the Bass drum!!
Its maybe just me BUT I would think the place for a tuned port would be the drum shell not the batter or rez heads. After all speaker cabs have the tuned port in the cabinet, not the loudspeaker membrane!

Has anyone on forum fitted these FX ports and do you like or loath them?

I don't own any, but given the video demos of them... I don't intend to.

(I should mention I am referring to the anything other than the bass drum reso application... definitely a specialty sound.)

I have used one on my bass drum but not toms or snare. They all have vents.
