I actually like that concept but as I recall when I checked out an octopus in person I didn't care for it for some reason.

On that note, which traction’s are made in CA?

I’d be down to pay the $50 price if it’s a mom and pop. Always appreciated Astroglide in that regard.

I third this. SD is a great pad. Really like the rigidity. Plus, I ride a lot of XTRs which have the pin holes in that area for out gasing. I've had the solid ones bubble a bit on hot tropical days left out.

Saw these at the local surf shop and bought one with arch one without(what they had in stock)

Full Corduroy pad looks interesting. Anyone get one and hate it? Curious how grippy it is. Not such a rippah that I’m gonna need to wax the pad, right?

Thanks for the tip with Stamps pads for cheap. I usually feel weird putting one shapers pad on another’s board but in my case, all the boards are from Tim. Will grab a couple next time I’m there in case I am still pad less.

I have one of these. Waiting for my XTR to arrive to put it on. It's still in packaging but looks thin, can't feel grip yet. Will report.

I like the corduroy a lot
less effort to adjust fore and aft but plenty of traction for lateral push
ymmv, I'm light on my feet
