    The old style is direct (no power transfer loss through the rubbber) with less mass to turn (quicker revving). I'd take the old style for performance and the new for less vibration and smoother feel.

    Old style is better for performance because the rubber will strip out of the new style.

    I have run both couplers! I like the new style as it runs smoother, Z

    New style is what I now run. Definately smoother.

    the new style will not be as hard on your driveline/engine as well. there have been many boats that i could not get the driveshaft out of b/c the splines are twisted inside the coupler on the older style. you then have to cut the driveshaft to replace the engine/coupler/driveshaft. its great fun i have only see a few new style dampners go bad and that was due to motor mounts going bad. my 2 cents
