I think Roland actually calls it a 6 inch pad, but I would swear when I was playing them at the local guitar center the other day, there was a good 3/4 inch of white, hard plastic around the edge and the center (mesh) part was tiny. Personally, I'd rather have have a good solid 6 inch + rubber surface than a tiny little crappy mesh surface. But, hey... maybe it's just me.
