This is more about the 'features' of this drum head which does actually do exactly what it is supposed to do, but I didn't get on with it in the end, it was an experiment.
Yes, it dampens and deadens a ringing steel snare, but then maybe don't use a steel snare or get a better one with a middle ring or a little more mass to it? Yes it is durable and allows you a better tuning range for a drum which usually would ring when taken to high, but at the loss of other qualities which other heads preserve.
Basically I had to tune up to get the musicality and responsiveness out of it to counteract the dead character it introduces which defeats the point somewhat. A bit of a gimmick/one trick pony maybe for me, others may love it though.
