There is lots of different foams available and the added weight can vary. For the most part the inserts have to be custom made to fit.

Concerning the filler, foam seems to be the most popular but not necessarily the best.

1.) what in your opinion would be better?
2.) what is the downside to not using anything?

AFAIC see, adding foam adds weight and probably damping effect. Is this good?
Or are the walls too thin to resist buckling without it?

I drill my maple shafts, so obviously don't find a problem with "hollow" per se.

PS - not intending to be contentious, just curious.

If the tubes are left empty the hit has a hollow sound some find disturbing. Carbon fiber is a very strong material there's no need for reinforcement.

I still have 8 blank tubes available if any cue maker/repairmen are interested in building their own.
