    Default Best rotary mat...

    A few months ago I read a discussion about rotary mats, and the best rotary mat. I cannot find that discussion, so I'm wondering if you could tell me what, in. Your opinion is best. ... I believe I read that there was one that was preferential to the Olfa. Help please...

    The one I have they don't even make anymore, but it's fantastic. Sorry, but I can't remember the brand, not that it matters. I have recently purchased a new one from Martelli, which I got for 50% off and I also have their rotating mat which I got for a screaming deal at Sew Expo. I have several of their products, to include, rotary cutters, blades, etc. and hope to one day have their longarm.

    I have an Olfa and like it. Those Martelli's look sweet though, I'm jealous Bubba.

    I just watched the Martelli rotary cutter demo on their website and it seems that when he is using their ruler he flips it over and all of a sudden it doesn't slide it stays in one place then when he demonstrates cutting again he flips it back on the other side and says see it slides and doesn't stay in one place it seems the black part has something on it to make it not slide and the blue side is slippery, hmmm.

    I have the gingher rotary mat and love it. It's twice as thick as all the others, has a lifetime warranty and doesn't smell.
