Default Has anyone used those practice pads from DW called DeadHead Pads?

I've been using the typical rubber/foam (Vic Firth) practice pads over my acoustic kit.
While it does silence the volume (except for the B/D), you get very little bounce. That might be good to build chops, technique or strength. But I am looking for something with a little more realistic bounce to it, but not as much as the thick traditional practice pads. Those are a little to bouncy for me.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

I've seen these at the shop, and it's seems like a thinner version of a Real Feel pad.
Didn't play on them, but it appeared to be nice construction.

I did pick some up on Ebay for $35 brand new. True, they are heavy duty. However, they have more bounce than both the rubber drum mutes, and drum practice pads. I wanted to get more bounce than the rubber mutes, but less than the practice pads that are just too bouncy.

I prolly could have glued some drum mutes to thin pieces of round wood to come close to the actual bounce.

Nice set though. You can actually hear the tone of the drum, but at a very low volume.
