    I think the TRS cable itself is one of the things limiting the natural swing of the cymbal.
    I partly agree.
    But how can we avoid this..?

      I don't use a project box on the Cymbal, but attach an earphone cable directly to the piezo. The project box is mounted to the cymbal stand. I know this is less robust, but a good strain relief goes a long way.

          I had a Gen16 set of 13" hats and 18" ride that I converted with Jman's triggers. They worked quite well. I've since sold the Gen16's and moved to the L80s (primarily because I wanted the 20" ride). The nice thing about his trigger method is you are using existing holes to mount them - not destroying the cymbal. It's simple to remove the trigger and you have your L80 back in it's original condition. If I had to nitpick I'd say I don't like the fact that you can see the trigger assembly through the cymbal. Also, it took me quite a bit of tweaking to avoid re-triggering. These cymbals vibrate a lot, even with a cymgard on them.

          As for feel, I agree that they do lose some with the trigger and cymgard. However, it's still feels more realistic than a rubber cymbal IMO.

          The one thing I want to improve is to find a clear alternative to the black cymgard.

            [Shameless plug]: If you want membrane triggers that can be mounted on the underside of your L80 cymbals (according to another user on this forum) to make them dual zone:
            Each membrane trigger switch is a 90 degree arc. They can be chained together to give 180 / 270 / 360 degrees coverage, and can be placed over curved surfaces without inhibiting trigger functionality. | eBay!

                I personally own the l80/triggered by Jman Stealth triggers and I love them.. I added some pintech strike pads anf they are quiet, trigger perfectly and are "real sizes".
