This is a high-tech solution to a low-tech problem. I normally use just plain plywood. or basswood, since these have very little stress on them. Applications are mainly Soling 1 Meters.
But, I decided to spring for this because it IS very well done, and will be the envy of the guys at the pond.
Do I NEED it? No. but I like it!!!
All prices are in USD.
