    Traction mats

    Is there a difference between the Hydroturf mats and the Blacktip mats that SBT sells? Or is it essentially the same material?

    Same - blacktip is cheaper though. I have used both. The pic I posted the other day is blacktip

    Yep...not as big of a selection on the colors & patterns for blacktip, but basically same. Def use the adhesive backed versions...makes it much easier. I buy sheet and cut my own too

    WE just installed Hydroturf on my friend's ski today and its beautiful stuff. I want nothing less on mine. I'm tempted to just go with the Hydroturf just because I know exactly what I will be getting, unless someone else out there can convince me otherwise

    I thought the same thing - I did two hydroturf before buying blacktip

    I promise - you wouldn't know the diff if you had the two brands side by side (I can send you a piece of my leftover if you want to see it)
