I've posted this review almost identically on all the products that I went through.
Where I've ended up is with a sponge as a shoulder rest. I bought just a car wash sponge and carved it out a bit to fit the contour of my collar bone and shoulder. I wish I could play without a shoulder rest at all but I have a tall neck and my shoulder is narrow and slopes quickly away. For my chin to even touch the chin rest without a shoulder pad I have to really crank my neck down. Not good. I had been taught years ago as a kid to use a shoulder rest and clamp down on it with my chin. Now I'm reversing that and holding the violin up with my left hand while I play. The chin lightly touches on the chin rest but my head and neck are in line with my spine and I don't have to bend my neck down. So my head can move freely while I play. The thick sponge shoulder pad keeps me from the reflex of pulling my left shoulder up while I play. I'm much more comfortable playing now even though I have to learn everything over again. It's amazing how much freer my movement is with the head not clamping down. The violin and my head can move more easily with the context of the music.
The sponge does change the tonal quality of the violin. But I just play for myself--I'm not in an orchestra or playing for the public, so it doesn't really matter.
This product may work for others, so I wanted to explain my story and let you know that I didn't choose to use it for reasons other than quality of manufacture or design.
