Dampness: The 2013/2014 model is damper going from 7.0 to 9.0

The construction is identical except on the 2013/2014 model, they have added "Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers" which is described as, "Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue."

So in a nut shell, it sounds basically like a stiffer, damper version of the original from last year.
Curious to see if it's actually stiffer or if NS adjusted their scale? Did you here this from Vince?
