Dock/pole bumpers

Should be a simple decision, but like everything else, I'm overthinking it.

What is everyone using for bumpers on the dock? More specifically, the poles that support the dock?

To give you an idea of my dock setup, it is one that gets put in and taken out every season. Poles are 2" diameter screw in poles.

The tops of my posts are below the top of the dock, but I guess that shouldn't really matter.

Thanks for the suggestion.

These can be drilled in to the dock. There are holes. Otherwise there is this as well.

Put in a new shoremaster, meaning put in a new lift?

I run 2x12 connected to the poles on the last 24'of dock. Makes it more stable, keeps the boat off and cleats on rope front and back make it easy for friends to tie up when they stop by.
