Truthmats for 2010 ABT barra tour?

Post by Peter4 » Wed Dec 09, 2009 11:17 am

After viewing the ABT galleries from the 2009 barra tour can I suggest that ABT and sponsors get together with Truthmat at Hervey Bay to produce an ABT Truthmat for next year's tour. Why? The truthmat is 140cm long which is 20cm longer than the standard bragmat which will give more accurate measures of those XOS barra. Also, with black markings on a white background, the truthmat can be more easily read and photographed in low light conditions. It may even be cheaper than the standard bragmat...

This would also provide consistency in measurements as I saw at least four different kinds of bragmats at the Mondy ABT event.

Just a thought.....

I would like to see new brag mats or truth mats at the start of every tour as old mats tend to shrink a 89cm has the potential to only be a 87cm, how is a 125cm measured properly. If cost is a issue maybe a small rise in entry fee's over the tour and you get to keep the mat at the end. Just a sugesstion for next yrs tour.
