Interesting post. I string my old Volkls on a Kmate, too, and use the leather wedges (nowadays called "power pads" as a marketing ploy of some sort). The wedges are there to help smooth out the angle break the string takes at that point in the frame geometry, thus reducing possibility of a string break.

I've reused mine over and over and over again, having cut them from an leftover bit of leather grip sometime back in 2001.
