I just picked up a set of these on e-Bay ($25 each):

https://www.ebay.com/itm/FOUR-VPI-Custom-Turntable-Isolation-Feet-Scoutmaster-Super-TNT-Aries-1/303261587085?hash=item469bcc968d:g:1OUAAOSwEf5b7I9f

They are made of Sorbothane and look just like the HW40 feet. They work great. I can bang on the table top with my fist and there is no feedback through the speakers and playback is undisturbed.

They are made by Minnesota PCtech; Also available here:

Introductory MSRP is $400 USD
Height about 4.5 cm un-installed.
Diameter around the widest part (aluminum) 6.2 cm.

Mat indicated in a post that the HW-40 feet were going to be made to accommodate other lengths. So they should be backward compatible for most, if not all, VPI tables.

Initial impressions are that I really like the HW-40 feet and what they do. But I will be going back and forth with the feet to confirm (or not confirm) my initial impressions.

I have heard good things about these as well. But have not tried them.

I'd be interested in knowing, as well.
Also, curious if the Symposium Classic footer inserts work with these feet?

The HW-40 "inserts" looks the same as the old VPI inserts but I don't know if the materials are different or whether you can pull them out.

Looks to me like they just encased them in sorbothane, but maybe there is more to it? :?
