Features:

Low mass

3 sizes to choose from. Mix and match as needed.
Made from solid Delrin plastic. Delrin is very strong, considered the workhorse of plastics.

If you're handy you can try a trick I use. Hot melt glue is cheap and sticks just enough make a permanent riser. It also comes off without any problems (doesn't mark or peel the lacquer). It takes a little practice to form the riser and some patience, but you can make it to any height and configuration as necessary. It can also be "post worked" using a propane cigarette lighter to smooth out any folds or rough spots. The most challenging way I've used hot melt was to reform a ring type thumb hook on an old Martin soprano. If any of you have used one of these ring configurations you'll know how uncomfortable they are. I molded it to be wider with an angel that is precisely the angle of my thumb while holding the sax. At the same time I added a ring that's at the top end of the thumb ring so that I can use a strap. Hot melt is magic stuff, but takes some time to get used to molding. I'm NOT recommending using it to glue in pads though.
