Can you guys install a piece of foam or felt with adhesive backing to the metal plate?
Or am I talking nonsense?

Nope. You need the transfer of energy to the captive ball behind it so it hits the target.

Not entirely true. I have had the loop velcro on since day one and it works perfectly...and it protects the block.
Maybe why I'm not experiencing the issues others describe is because of this little add on.

loop Velcro, are you talking about the stuff to wrap speaker wire in a bundle?

Velcro uses hook and loop strips. I cut a small piece of the loop piece a little bit wider than the block front and wrapped it around the block. I prepped the block by cleaning it with alcohol and have had no problem with the velcro strip adhering. I have about 500 plays on it and this is my second piece of velcro used. Easy to do and no dis-assembly required.

I can't find the ones as wide as what you show in the pic. You have a link? I been to a few stores and all I could find was the Velcro loop strips that are abit smaller in width and you don't need the to adhere (basically there use is to bundle stereo wires together, etc.). You loop it through the hole and tighten by pulling on it then get it where you want it and put the two pieces of Velcro together to seal. Maybe the thinner piece may work to, have to see.

I got it at Home Depot. It comes in a 4 pack and comes in different widths. I used 3/4"
