Pilgrim, I got the Inspiral already. But then, my stiff neck disappeared already after I went back to dancing. Seems like I need to do regular exercise.

Going back to Inspiral, it's actually a form of a chinrest. The hook is attached to the tail part of the violin and is placed on the other shoulder. The right side of the chin applies tension to the hook to balance the weight of the violin. The advantage is, you don't need to bend your neck to hold the violin. You just need to adjust the hook so your cheek bone or your neck can hold it. It requires a shoulder rest that can be adjusted to the right angle so it sits perfectly on the shoulder or chest.

Looks ok to me just for practice and very useful for long hours of fiddling. However, I have to unscrew it after use so I can put back the violin in its case.
