Re: [SCA-Archery] Wal-mart version of Saunders Mat -- Any experience?
- Have you looked at companies that handle foam.
We have use a closed cell foam that is 6" x 48" x 54" (1.7 density)
10,000 shoots, bows running from 20 to 80 lb. Crossbows up to 150lb.
No they do no look period, so we cover them with burlap to hide the ugly
Using the burlap and an air brush you can make the fabric look like stone,
wood planks or
just use back burlap.
Company we use is, Techniform, out of the St Louis Missouri area.
Did I mention that it can be moved easily because of it weights about 20#,
does not gain weight from being in the rain, and does not attract rodents.

Coroplast is probally the correct name for the stuff: corplas might just
be short hand used on reciepts.
The sheets we have are somewhere between 4 and 6mm thick. I never actually
measured the thickness but I can pull one out of my garage when I get home
