Bed springs vs scilicone isolators

Im curious who has tried out the scilicone isolators on their print bed. Or went with different springs or made your printbed fully rigid.

If so, why? Any changes?

If not why not?

Im about to install the scilicone dampeners in place of springs, mostly beacuse i already had the print bed off and had them on hand. Otherwise no particular reason why im doing this.

I have seen spring sets other than the normal “yellow” springs. But cant really justify getting them since mine work well enough and again scilicone dampeners were already on hand.

Spring set i found for reference.

I’m firmly ensconced in the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” camp. I won’t change them unless there’s a proven need.
