I believe the "Amplifeel" is just silicone.

Amplifeel is actually (as far as I know) some fibers in the handle that are supposed to better transmit vibrations from the frame to the player's hand. Basically the BLX is supposed to damp shock and the Amplifeel takes the vibrations that are still present in the frame down at the handle and make them more noticeable.

Silicon should have nothing to do with it. Silicon acts as a damper and would not amplify anything.

Maybe they use silicone to get it to the desired spec, allthough that is not normally their strength, I understand...
