Still not sure I would want to go poppit. Its still a little loud even in the videos.
It's the sound signature, I think, that is throwing you off. Even though it may be quieter, it still has a "harsher" sound. Personally, I'd take a poppet over a spool valve any day. Reason being that the poppet will just work. Reliability has never been an issue with my Ego, and it's an 08. But that's my two cents.
