Anybody have both Herbie's Cone/Spike Pucks and isoacoustics gaia's

My Spatial Audio X5's sit on pieces of granite which sit on top of carpeting with a concrete floor under all of it. Am very happy with the performance I'm getting now but was thinking of getting some isoacoustic gaia's for my speakers because of all the positive feedback. Never heard of Herbie's audio products before I started in on my research of isoacoustics. I'm wondering if there spike pucks do the same thing as the gaia's do? There pricing is attractive. So I was hoping to hear from someone who may have had both and could give me there feedback.

I will chime in only because I used the following before getting the Townshend seismic podiums.  My room is on the second floor carpet over suspended wood floor.  I used the following: 1) Herbies gliders, 2) Spikes through carpet to wood sub floor 3) No spikes 4) Flagstone platforms with spikes and sitting on the carpet.  The Townshend was the only solution that firmed up the bass, decrease a bass node I was having, brought a larger soundstage and depth and helped place the instruments more accurately in the soundstage.  I bought them on e-bay direct.
