Absolutely. Essential for any situation of mismatched head sizes.

But it doesn't deal with the problem of wrong coercivity.

Nevertheless, YMMV!

Although I've had a moderate amount of experience of it NEVER working

media and having it work just fine. Hmmm.

Maybe I should try again sometime with better quality data.
