As someone else mentioned, I believe mine is the older new one, although it's never been played. I haven't checked to see of there is rubber on the clamp. I know most, if not all the new pedals have them. I got a new Iron Cobra online. I hate that thing. The Cobra Coil, and inability to make it loose enough, even with zero spring tension makes it unplayable for me.Do you know if the new Speed Kings have rubber pads where it clamps to the hoop to avoid pedal rash?
I keep rim protectors on my hoops either way, but I do like the new clamps.
