I'll go ahead and give my 2 cents.

I've been wrestling on Swain/Dollamur/Flexi-roll mats for a long time. They are truly great. To address some of your concerns: The long term durability of these is outstanding. The mat surface (which connects the foam pieces) will not tear unless you try and cut it. If you do need to cut them, it is very easy to do with utility knife. We use these mats as our competition mats at school. Our mat in the wrestling room is a Resilite. Resilite is heavier, and is probably a better choice for a permanent mat that won't be moved (like a wrestling room mat) while the Dollamur is great for it's weight and portability.

In a couple days i'll post pics of my garage mat. Resilite 1.5" thick, 24x24, three pieces.

El Jefe, you live in Irvine?? those garages look like a place i was thinking of moving into,, do you have enough space to roll?

I used to live in Irvine, but I live in Mission Viejo now. It's further from my gym, but I like it more. The 10x10 fit perfectly inside the garage. It's enough room to do technique and some light (starting out on knees) rolling. Practicing takedowns is good, but since you only have a limitied amount of space, it would be hard to practice takedowns at 100%. I want to get one more 5x10 piece. I think that'll be enough room.

List price is $249 for the 5x10' with free shipping. It goes up to like $299 for a 5'x10' that's thicker, but then shipping is freakin' 99 bucks or something.
