It sure isn't as stable as a normal floortom but its bounce is really hard to notice. BTW I wouldn't risk with a 16 hanging floor tom because it can be too heavy and bounce too much
I agree that the weight has a profound effect on the bounce, but i have a 16x14 that i hang on a road pro single tom stand and it has very little bounce. The road pro omni balls hold firm for me, and i have no complaints about the size of this. however i have seen some people that hand 14x12s and they just dont mount them well, or dont tighten the star cast mounts and that makes the tom much lest stable.
