I've been using Burst Thor's on my FH and Mech-Tek on my BH (penhold) for a while and really like both.

I recently saw that Gambler now has Burst with the Gearz sponge, and also X3 Diamond with Gearz (a mechanical grippy rubber).

How does Burst Gearz compare to Burst Thor's?
How does X3 Diamond Gearz compare to Mech-Tek?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. I haven't been able to find any good information about these rubbers despite intensive googling.

Maybe he'll chip in here.

I have used Burst and X3 Diamond with GearZ sponge. However I have not used either Burst Thor's or Mech-Tek. The GearZ sponge is supposedly less hard and more bouncy than the Thor while being harder than the older sponge used on the Gambler rubbers. I liked the Burst GearZ but felt like I wanted something a bit harder (for me). The X3 Diamond is let down by its top sheet being hard and brittle (mine cracked at the edges where it may have hit the table). I have not had the cracking issue on other brands or even with the Burst.
