Default Mapex cymbal accentuators vs. felts (hihat)

I've just got some new hi-hats that I want to get the best sound out of and keep in good condition, but I'm wondering how best to do this with my mapex stand, and those rubber thingies...evidently referred to as 'cymbal accentuators'.

I don't like the way they restrict the movement of the top cymbal. A quick search shows me I'm not alone in this. What does everyone else think?

I've just remembered I have an emergency clutch that I can pilfer for felts, so I may just swap them over anyway. The hats are Paiste 2002 14" Wild Hats, by the way!

I've used Pearl's version of those off and on, and I always went back to the felt.
Actually, Pearls Black felts work great. They don't seem to mush as bad as the ones that came with the DW stand I have.

I don't get where anyone thinks rubber is going to accentuate a cymbals response, they must've done the tests though... or maybe not.
