I own 2 X Team Durango pit Mats and a big horrizon brand pit mat (like the ones with different slots and magnets as screw trays). I own this and the new Bitter Design Pit "PAD". I've got other pit mats as well...too many...
My take on this is if I would've tried this first, I would not end up having all these pit mats. The rubber type pit mats with magnets and slots on the rubber like the Team Durango pit mats are nice, but too small with uneven surface. This Pro Tek one is huge, even surface, no water/liquid leak through type material, "sticky" type material so your screws won't slip away that easily. Basically what I'm saying is that this pit mat serves the same purpose as other rubber type pit mats with slots and magnets that hold screws but with a better design and material for the same purpose. And the surface is EVEN and the mat is MUCH BIGGER. The uneven surface of the Team Durango logos on the mat and the parts slots on the rubber mats get in the way in my opinion.
As comparing with the BitterDesign type Pat "Towel"/"PAD" products, I don't know why they exist...maybe because there weren't that many like ProTek type pit mats around.
Some people complained about the Mesh bag, don't listen to them, if you don't purposely rip it apart it's fine. I mean, it's a Mesh bag, you roll up your mat and put it inside...how easy is that to damage the bag? How in the world do you use your stuff? if you are impatient and don't want to spend the time to roll up your mat properly to fit into the bag, then don't use it, you won't like it if you are a person just want to shove everything into the bag without thinking. In that case, yeah, you would need a very durable bag and won't puncture or rip under heavy shoving abuse. You may ask, so..is the mesh bag really a tight fit even when you roll up your mat? The answer is NO, you don't have to roll it up as thin as a Spring Roll in order to fit the mat into the mesh bag, just roll it up in a good enough size and the rolled up mat will fit with ease. You just have to spend the time to roll it up! if you're not traveling with this and it's always on a table, this is not a concern then obviously.
color is great, the dust and stains can easily be removed,
mesh to carry it is appreciated bonus,
as all protek rc goodies that I´been using, big bang for the buck!
