Olhausen "upgraded" pockets

I have a Olhausen Grand Champion 3 pool table.

The pockets/buckets on my table are plastic. Whenever you pocket a ball you get the plastic "clack" when a ball drops.

I put 3 layers of felt in the bottom of the bucket, and I get a "thud" rather than a "clack", but it's still not what I want. Notice I said want, and not what I need.

Olhausen says they have an "upgraded" pocket, that is leather and will take care of the "CLACK".

A couple questions; Is the rail profile too high on the back of the bucket?, And is it better sounding than the plastic?
