astro turf snow turf question????

OK,
I found these 3 turf's for my backyard summer set up. The far right is a more dense and better backing carpet. Middle as you can see is somewhat balding and not much backing. Far left is dense and seems to have some rubber on the back seems a little tighter or more dense than both greens.


  • Any one have any thoughts or experience with any of these materials?
  • Does one slide better than the other?
  • Price for worst green .25, blue .40, better green .50 only a few $$$ difference but money saved is always good.

Middle one will be the best just remember to lube it up with soapy water.

what you really want is Dendix or ideally Snowflex! coming from Ireland, this is the best stuff we have, but thanks to global warming we've been getting a few weeks of snow lately!

Dendix is known for its finger-breaking goodness due to its diamond shaped design but it has better grip for carving.

Snowflex is my artificial slope material of choice as its more cuddley when you land on it, it doesnt have any holes in it to catch fingers and is overall miles better for freestyle, yet it is easier to lose an edge n slide out.

Both of them need to be lubricated, and every artifical slope in ireland and the uk use sprinkler systems that work just fine!

Anyways heres the wiki for it n if you're interested a video! At the London Freeze festival a year or two ago, loads of the american pro riders were freaked out by a snowflex drop in for the booter but the uk riders were stomping it!

I know what it is but it is well out of my price range for just something for kids to do over the summer in the yard.
Thanks for the input though.
