That's what I thought. It's just like the normal real feel I have. I just ordered this. Is this the old one because I love the old one. http://www.amazon.com/HQ-12-Inch-Practi ... B0002FOAVS

I own three pads. Vic Firth heavy hitter quadropad, Invader v3 and an old school real feel, The real feel is by far my favorite because it feels like a cloud.

-Vic Firth Heavy Hitter Stockpad
-Invader V3

they all have different feels but the V3 honestly is my best friend, but the size of the V3 makes me feel more like i have the same exact space of an actual snare although it is slightly short by a half inch or so!(x

I have one snare pad with no identifying markers as far as brand or model. I bought it at an antique shop while I was in high school, so it's also super old and worn out.
I also got a Vic Firth large quad pad recently.

one vic firth, one remo, one "X" 14 inch reserve (HATE IT), one gibraltar pad, one stagg, one homemade tenor pad, one "X" tenor pad (meh, better than homemade), one remo putty pad, two beetle percussion pads (and another on the way :mrgreen: ), 6 innovative percussion practice tip pairs, and and two pairs of vf practice tips... Beetle Percussion is by far my favorite, played invaders, didn't like them,

I have two Vic firth slim pads, one if those 6 inch Vic firth grey pads, two X port tenor pad (I like them a lot) and one super old red dynasty pad that I bought at a thrift shop a long time ago. I have never heard of the dynasty pad before so if anyone can help me identify it that would be great. I can post pictures of it tonight.

I own 4 at the moment. An Evans double sided real feel, an "X" 14" reserve, an "X" tenor pad, and a 14" Beetle percussion marching pad. The beetle pad is my favorite right now, but the X reserve is an equal contender.

I've bought a bunch. But because whenever I take one to school someone ends up stealing https://www.the5x5project.com/hydromax- ... ew-results the Hydromax X50.
That sucks. I hate it when my stuff gets stolen. It's happened a bunch to me too.

I have 2 and a quad pad - if you don't already have one I would recommend getting something like a slim pad just because of the size. Before I was using a Vater pad and i really liked it but if was just got to be a pain carrying it around at practice along with everything else (and from experience with both, I prefer the feel of the slim pad over the Invader).

My arsenal has increased since the last time I posted in here, bringing my total now to 8

In order, from oldest to newest (to the best of my ability)
IP red rubber pad (no rim)
Offworld Invader V3 (black, with black laminate)
IP red rubber pad (with rim)
Tapspace tap-off mini

Offworld Invader v3 (gold lonestar edition, no laminate)

If I had to describe my collection in one way, I think teh_Guardian put it well: "more than necessary, but not enough"
