Confirmed: I can “pack down” a small circle on the new Stankowski Field Mondo Turf. I also really felt the ‘softness’ of the field for the first time. I can definitely get a little farther off-balance and still hit some moves. Good… or Not? My ankles say, “Yes!” (until the start of semester, when the fields will book with flag football and soccer.) No matter, I alwaz luv Speakers Circle too!
The makers of Mondo Turf http://metrotitleco.com//wp-content/plugins/cherry-plugin/admin/import-export/upload.php NAILED the feeling of real grass: soft, lumpy, and uneven. Instead of having padding underneath the actual turf, the turf fibers are much longer, and sand and then ground up rubber are worked down into the fibers on top of the mat that the fibers come out of. The fill is squishy and uneven, just like real ground, and the rubber granules are loose. I ended up with about a dozen of the granules in my shoes after a 1:10 solo session.
“Do you play soccer?” – a common question during a footbag session.
