I mean, I thought the reason one used the thing was to get rid of the footstool and assume a healthier, more comfortable posture. But now I see that, for many people, it involves a cloth to keep it from slipping, another cloth to mute the squeaks, and . . . A FOOT STOOL! Sounds like more fuss than it's worth.
I believe I'll just stick with the foot stool after all.
The new Dynarette has neoprene strip which eliminates slippage for me (I use it with polyester, cotton or wool pants).
I do not use foot stool.
Squeaks - yes, you need some workaround if this is critical, such as when recording CD, but I am not from this league
Dynarette is very convenient compared to supports with suction cups, and is at least as safe as these.
Foot stool is safe, less convenient, and may cause health issues.
Suction cup supports are cumbersome, take time to install and remove, can damage finish, but introduce no noise (except when suction cup fails, and guitar or support falls down
I would say that suction cup supports are #1 for those who are ready to sacrifice convenience for the sound, footstool is #1 for those who are willing to sacrifice their health for the sound, and Dynarette is #1 for the rest
