I contacted Dave at Offworld and he sent me another Vinyl layer. The problem isn't the vinyl layer as much as the Mylar plastic. In order for me to apply the vinyl, I need a new Mylar. I just have to get online and order a new one. I do like the sound, but for the amount I practice a week, I don't use it all the time. Or I will be going through a ton of money.

Do I need to clean it when i take it out of the box or do i wait a week? Is it fine to play straight out of the box? Also would it do any harm playing ontop of an old snare drum of mine so its higher?

It's fine to play right out of the box..and no that won't hurt it at all. Occasionally it will get like suction cupped down to the surface you put it on..but it can be pried off simply enough

Unless you are curious to see if you can drum while standing in your pool. I wouldn't recommend trying that unless you are a nut like me and just want a pool pad. I will admit it's pretty awesome during the summer.

Hey I hate to be "that guy". But. The x company just came out with a new line of pads. sort of. They now have a non marking surface. and you have the option of getting a carbon laminate, plain kevlar, or a carbon kevlar hybrid (no more replacing laminates every month or so). Sorry to be that guy I understand there is a lot of hate on this site for them, but dang they undoubtuly make some good pads.

Longboarding with some friends the other day and my friend was holding my v3 and I was playing while we were skating and my other friend did a 180 shove-it under/in-between us and out of excitement my friend holding the pad slammed it into the concrete and it rolled perfectly for about 30 feet and it barely had a scratch on the rim.

If anyone is wondering about the shuttle pad, it's great. I got one at the RCC show since it fit in my bag better than my ***** pad. It feels great. Also, two people can play on it at the same time.

Just normal wear and tear. They're basically strips of plastic

My old v1 invader is starting to die, rim is gonna fall off before too long. So I'm gonna order a new v3 next week and I can't decide between laminated or normal dark matter. I guess my biggest question, if I buy the laminated v3 and the plastic starts to crack, can I peel it off and be left with a normal invader pad?

In theory, yes, you can peel off the laminate if it gets really cracked, but in reality it may not just come off clean. I'd personally recommend the regular dark matter, you don't have to do the whole wash and wax thing that they tell you to do, and IMO it feels better than with the laminate. Just don't get the Lonestar gold one, because they coat that one with armorall or something instead of the turtle wax, and it kills a lot of the rebound until you really break it in, and even then it doesn't feel as good as the black or red ones.

Edit: forgot to mention this above but the laminates are really hard to crack. I've had a laminated invader for over a year, and after a year of regular use mine doesn't have a single crack, much less enough to make me want to take the laminate off
