Mooring snubber w/ Maxi-Moor Pendant

I am considering switching from 3-strand nylon mooring pendants to Maxi-Moor Polydyne pendants but am concerned because from what I read the Maxi-Moor pendants stretch less under load. Stretch in the pendants appears to be an important design feature of mooring system.

To provide additional stretch I am thinking about adding a mooring snubber to one of the Maxi-Moor pendants. Have any of you attempted this? Are the two compatible? Will the soft eye of the Maxi-Moor pendant pass throught the small eyes of the snubber?

Polydyne pendants, which are made by Yale cordage IIRC, are among the best available and don't really need to have a snubber added to them unless you've grossly oversized them.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Been using nylon double braid pendants for years and love them. Never felt I needed a snubber even though I'm in a semi-exposed anchorage.
