Re: puzzle mats

The mats you linked to are only 3/8" thick, too thin in my opinion. You'll tear them up in a hurry. Check with a martial arts supply store for the 1" thick puzzle mats that are 1 meter square. They...

Re: good deal on LED timer

That's a good find Aaron. Let us all know if you are happy with the unit.

Re: Concept 2 Model C - 450$ Good Deal?

If you don't want it, I'll buy it. It's a very fair price, and you will be able to resell it for the same if not more if you need to. It's like cash in the bank.
