My new set will have tama omni ball clamps for the toms, I was curious what people's opinions are on these? I have heard bad stories about the ball clamps. Would it help it I took the top of the stand holding the toms off the base and left the toms face down on the ground when I wasn't playing to reduce stress on the clamps? Are they really all that bad?

You dont have to do anything like that, they will work fine. They are not as strong as Pearl tom mounts, but unless you are mounting huge toms and have a really expensive kit, they will be fine.

Well, hehe...it is an expensive kit...my biggest mounted tom will be a 14x11.
