griffin grabber pads

updated wed 31 jul 96

The material that the pads are made of is a closed cell neoprene rubber
(kind of like the stuff they make wet suits out of). There are a series or
ASTM specs on this material and if I remember correctly the original wet
suit material was the softest in the series - SC41 (they now make special
stuff for them). You will want something like a "SC43 with no skin" (I
think) - the higher the number the denser it is.. You can get it from an
industrial rubber and gasket house in some big city around there,
