I have the 'pro' fitted to my gravel bike.  The only reason for purchasing this over the standard version was the the standard was not available in 100 mm length, where the pro was available immediately.  I had expected a bit of a 'subtle' result but on bad roads and especially cobblestones, the effect is really very pronounced, everything is smoothed out.  Like lowering tire pressure substantially, but without the drawbacks.  When pedalling out of the saddle there's a bit of give but it's easy to live with.  I had been considering a suspension fork because I like to make longer rides of around 150-200 km and occasionally feel pins&needles in my hands but this fixes the problem at a lower weight and (much) lower price.
