I have noticed alot of stepper couplings on the market from anti backlash to rubber dampening, they can get really expensive too. I have a few autofocus solutions but I prefer the zwo eaf for my setup because of asi air. I have 3 scopes that will use the eaf and its very cumbersome to remove the 2 screws on the coupling to re connect to the other scopes. I also decided to ditch the allan screws that hold the bracket on for m4 thumb screws and now im replacing the couplings with a clamping type variant that only has one screw on each end. This will speed up the process of moving the eaf by alot. Has anyone else swapped out their couplings?

Here is what I ordered. Now I can just leave a coupling on each scope.
