I've used the Aquarian patch the last 10 years and now use the Aquarian super-thin. Never a problem with either one. I use the plastic side of a DW beater.

I use the Remo Flam pad. A recent discovery actually. Small cut down 1 1/4" square for actual contact spot of the wood beater for the 18" bass drum sounded totally killer in the recording studio today. Use the extra full size black pad on the beater contact area for my wide open 16" bass drum and it's a dandy combo as heard on a weekend outdoor concert.

Might try the thinner pads down the road but pretty pleased with the cut down Falam square piece for my 18" and the full size pad for my 16" at present. No sign of any wear at all on either pad with the wood beater on the 18" or the hard felt beater on the 16".

Looking at the material when I carefully cut the square out for the 18" has me suspect it will take years if ever to wear a hole through one of these dense interwoven fabric core based pads combined with it's shiny protective cover surface at least for me. Individual circumstances may vary.

i know they dont look to good for durms,but they claim to be 2 sided. and produce a nice punchy sound.
