Default Anti Spin Felts?

Hey all, Ive got a very annoying problem, Ive gotten into angling my cymbals, but the buggars love to spin around into all sorts of angles and im worried about hitting my cymbal in an improper way!

Does anyone know of any cool accessories to counter this? :D

Sounds like you just need some new felts.
Oh, I just read you were looking for anti spin felts.. Don't know of any. Could you add a thin felt to make them a little more snug but still allowing full movement?

Anti-spin felts would quickly compress on one side, especially if they were angled. It's good to let your cymbals spin as I think it would make them break more if you kept hitting the same spot all the time.

My experience with tilted cymbals is that the cymbal always winds up with the heavy side at the lowest point.
No cymbal is perfectly balanced and the heaviest part of the pie will gravitate to the lowest point if the cymbal is tilted.

Thats just plain physics!

Cymbals will turn even if they are flat.
It's just the way it is.

Nothing to worry about.
