I'm also very interested in this pad as well, the pad itself looks to be made from the same moongel that are used for dampening, if thats the case you could expect this pad to get dirty easy and I'm not sure how that would even feel. I'm interested to go find some reviews now.

I owned the small 8" one until it fell apart. The rubber "rim" came unglued. But before that, it wasn't bad. Of course there is no rebound what-so-ever so it doesn't replace your standard practice pad. It was fairly quiet, quieter than your standard pad and it helped if you put it on a sound absorbing material like a pillow.

You will also need to take care in transporting/storing it as the plastic "bag" can tear and will release to stuff inside. Then the pad is pretty much useless.

Sorry, I didn't see your reply.

It lasted a few years. I had the 7" version and it was about $30.

It's great have but get the 14 and place on anything flat! But after working out on the moongel pad, workout on your snare or regular practice pad to help with rebound control! As far the durability of it, very durable! Highly recommended!
