Im using the R.S.S mounts at the moment which are fine for my smaller toms but anything above 12 tends to move alot which is a pain. Depends how hard you hit though.
Im changing up to opti's in a month or two so will be selling my rss mounts then.

Iv'e got the gauger rims mounts on most of my kits and they are still the best suspension system out there in my opinion. I can get the taiwanese copies if anyone needs them.

I can't comment on the opti's as I never had a pearl kit but I know these things work really well because the drum actually hangs from the suspension band. When he lost the patent back in the 90's every drum maker in the world ripped off the design. Heres the website

What sort of price am i looking at Mark?
Also would want to replace the clamp as well rather than the 18 year old premier ones, they are a bit seized
