Default Bass drum pads increasing pedal felt wear??

Hi there, i've been wondering if any of you have this problem, the felt pad on my pedal head (uno not what I mean lol) seems to be wearing out rarther quickly, i've already changed it twice since summer 2010...I thought they were ment to last longer than that.

I think its the pad, because alot of the felt seems to rub off and stick to the pad, leaving an awful lot of cr&ap on my floor! :/ this means it also floats around, and it gets into all the mecinisums of my pedal and no doubt wrecking it! :/

Any help would be much apreciated, Cheers Tom

After reading around I found this: Evans has a plastic one and a cloth one... the cloth one eats away at felt beaters and wears down real quick.

The Evans clear thin pad works good but it will wear out in time.
The Flam Slam and the Aquarian likeness of it are the most durable protectors that I have used.
