Ill also try with the battop and balltop to see if one is superior. If not then im sticking with pad i guess :/

It's a circular gate but when I hit it I don't feel like it's going to slip one way or the other, whereas the octo gate felt like that constantly when I used it. Only other major difference is the resistance from the rubber and the fact that it returns to neutral. Bat top vs balltop really comes down to preference and personal comfort.
