ive only had the standard and the heavy one i mentioned. ive seen others listed as heavy but i have no idea if they help. i can only state that the heavy one on that sight worked good for our two rifles... ive shot around 7 different AR's and mine was handsdown the loudest most annoying BOING noise i had ever heard.. and now its whisper quiet.. so its up to you to shell out the money. but my bet is you'll be glad you did.

one option might be to try one of the heavy, cheaper buffers from sportsmansguide or other online places and see how it does. if it performs good enough for you great. if not its not tons of money and then you would know if you felt you needed to get the expensive one. hehe
I should be getting my upper very soon so I have a little time to look into a few. I'm sure I have a few friends who wouldn't mind letting me put my lower on their upper to see how much noise it'll make. Of course all uppers will perform different, but this way I can get an idea. I don't mind dishing out the money if I know it's good. The guy I've been ordering my parts from I taking an awfully long time to get the parts, but as soon as I get them I'll have to upgrade the buffer. I too have heard of the hydraulic buffer, but have no clue how it works or the benefits of having one. All I know is that I want to finish this damn build!!!! SOON!!!!

This is being developed my the good people at ExileMachine.com I just wanted to share it with you all.

Didn't want to bring this up yet but we're currently developing a product that amplifies the twang for our customers who embrace the twang but are unfortunately hard of hearing. You just replace your existing buffer with our product, codenamed "TWANG DANG," and you will experience an 85dbA increase in twang sound pressure level (SPL). The sound is transmitted directly to your hearing aids or to your electronic muffs via bluetooth wireless connection. For customers who do not use electronic muffs or hearing aids, we have a bluetooth cassette tape boombox adapter so you can set your boombox on your bench so everyone else can hear the amplified twang too. In live fire tests of our prototypes, we found a marked improvement in the ability of the shooter to hear the twang. Using the boombox can be upsetting to nearby shooters who may confuse your amplified twang with the unamplified twang of their own weapons. For this reason we will not recommend the use of the boombox adapter at a public range. MSRP $149.99. Bluetooth Cassette tape adapter sold separately. Expected availability 4/1/12. NOT SOLD IN STORES.

i once heard a rumor that the taliban would wait till they heard the sproing noise and then charge the soldiers knowing that the rifle was in mid cycle and they would have a mili second to run in for hand combat.........

When i first got my Spikes' I asked the same question about the sprong.
I was told by my LE dealer to use white lithium grease and don't be stingy.
Doesn't get rid of the sprong, but it makes it a little less tinny.

JP rifles claims to have a buffer spring that addresses this issue. Whether it works or not I don't know:

Those are some pretty nice looking carriers. I feel bad, but I may have to tell my local guy to send the kit back and buy some upgraded pieces. I mean it sure is taking him long enough to get them to me.
