Has any one tested the Tropicana Orange Juice Lids (suppression pads) for sale in the classifieds?

Could the blue ones be from blueberry juice jugs?

Well as I mentioned in another thread, it has rained and snowed here for 3.5 months so no need for anti vibration pads, just plop that tripod right down in the MUD

But any hoot what type of padding is inside those things, orange would be fine since I have a celestron, but blue is cool for Meade oweners.

I dunno...but my Magic 8-ball says "If you want a decent vibration suppression pad, get the real thing, not something made from a jar lid..." :lol"

Extra pulp are the most effective. ;-)

I think I'll buy the juice, some vodka and have my brain compensate for the vibrations!

Hey, I'm all for diy, recycle, reuse, frugal etc vs filling our landfills
with junk, so does anyone know if these dang things work or not?
