I used one on a tandem and hated it. Some people really love them though. If you decide to go that route it is really important that you have the proper elasomer in there for your weight otherwise what will happen (if you weight too much) is that when you hit a bump the elasomer will compress with your weight until it suddenly stops. It'll jam the seat right where you don't want it. Not a very comfortable situation. Believe me, I know. I did a 360mile ride like that. It just about killed me.
I would take the weight suggestions seriously with the thudbuster, not because it might break but because you want the suspension to work properly.
