I have owned this playmat for about 5 months now. My main concern was the design fading to an unreasonable extent, however it didn't. Yes it did fade over time, but if you keep good care of it this will last for a long time. The colors are clean and crisp, along with that it is the talk of the tournaments that I am a part of. If you are in the market for a new or your first play mat then I highly recommend this mat (or any mat for that MATter, ha see what I did there). Although the one problem I had was the smell of the mat, it still lingers today, but not as bad as when it was first rolled out.
I really like it but it smelled really bad when i got the thing it smelled like urine
I was really impressed and pleased that I was able to personalize my mat by requesting a color swap (an emerald green instead of the dark red). Definitely getting some Christmas presents from here this year :) The one thing I'd mention though is there's a nasty chemical smell to the mat and the FAQ page isn't very clear on instructions.But overall it doesn't sway my opinion that this is clearly the best place to buy a cool mat that people notice at tournaments.
I love my new mat its exactly what I was looking for
these are so awesome
