Smile What is the best rotary cutting mat on the market?

Looking to replace my Olfa cutting mats that I have had over ten years. I would like to get your feedback on which mats you like best and why. I am looking at an 18X 24" size.

Olfa is my favorite, really don't like the pink ones (whatever brand they are). Ten years of use I think makes for a good quality cutting mat.

I too like Olfa the best. I do have one bigger which is not an Olfa and I do use it once in a while, but it's not self healing and my cutter blades seem to dull faster on it....

the (off=brand) mats may work well and be (someone's) favorite when they first get it- but they do not hold up well-and certainly would not last the 10 years your olfa lasted(more like 2-3 years)
you have the answer to your own question- the mat that is best is the mat that you personally like- and holds up- is worth the $$ it costs.

Olfa for me too. I have had great luck with them. I bought another brand (less expensive) and thought it was okay but didn't last.
