I have original still points and some other ball bearing type footers. I believe the "science" is that these move a micro amount and dissipate vibration as heat. However I just can't see how this'd work (other than coupling to a smaller surface area like spikes). When you put a ball bearing, even a ceramic one down with a great deal of weight on it, I simply can't see how this would move. These in addition are not greased and therefore surely have more friction. So how are these "supposed" to work?
