I have blocks coming out of my ears, from Durablocks to home mades. The thing is if you are running this flexible block over the surface it is conforming to the highs and lows and not "Blocking" anything!

Like I said, I have tried the curvable blocks I have tried just about everything and never been happy with the performance of simply treating it like a "curved flat" panel. Goofy I know, but that is how I do it.
