Default Moongel Practice Pads

Does anyone out there use a Moongel practice pad?

Default Re: Moongel Practice Pads

i use one. it's good. it has a stand too. there's an insert nut in the pad where you screw the stand onto. the way rtom engineered this wasn't very good imo, because with repeated practice, the vibrations cause this nut to turn freely within the pad. so if you aren't aware, like i wasn't at first, you'll try taken the pad off the stand, but b/c it was screwed onto the stand so tightly, the pad just spins freely around the insert and you can't get it off unless you rip the insert lug out of the pad completely. now, i can't get the pad to stay on the stand solidly.

They serve their purpose for when you want a wrist workout (just like a pillow would), but you need a surface that rebounds in order to work the all-important finger control.
