Hamp shortie oil filter

Has anyone used one? Notice any change in the car? I know they see a rise in oil pressure, am considering one with some millers nanotech for my next oil and filter change.

if its rising the oil pressure that would suggest to me its altering the flow which might not be good long term

is it restricting the flow which registers higher pressure at the sensor but reducing oil flow to the parts that needs it

simply changing a filter shouldn't increase oil pressure

I've used them for years with no problems - initially after ordering one by mistake. I can't tell if it makes a difference to the car, but after 20-odd thousand miles of pretty hard use the engine hasn't gone bang. Grinspeed told me the trade off for the alleged higher oil pressure is (obviously) lesser oil filtration through a smaller filter. If you regularly change the oil as I do (6,000 miles) then I can't see it being an issue.
