The unit is designed for Generic Dampeners that are available from a variety of sources. We decided on this because dampeners come in various different dampening hardness and you can choose which ones work best for your application. We recommend any 8mm or 9mm dampening balls. The hole size is designed for 8mm but can easily be adapter to 9mm if needed to suit most 9mm generic dampeners available today. We do offer a couple of generic dampeners. dampeners come in different hardness ratings, and can be tuned for your individual requirements. Black 100g, Yellow 200g & Red 300g are available from HobbyKing.
This is a "Tension" style dampening system so the dampening balls need to be a very snug fit as the camera hangs on them. Protectors can also be installed through the dampening balls if needed for extra insurance.
Weight of all 3 3DP parts are about 30g.
