You know what? THEY ARE ALL TX-1000's, they are made by the same people, to look slightly different, just to fool idiots like you.

Whaaaaaat? 600 pounds? The fact that this is, in all likelihood, a ridiculous exaggeration is bad enough. The other thing is, when one weighs 600 pounds, isn't that so heavy you're rapidly approaching the point of complete immobility if you're not already there?

Aside from that, going further on what dem0nic said, this pad looks identical to the TX-4000 seen on eBay, which is very similar to the TX-3000, which is the successor to the TX-1000. I doubt it's any good.

Indeed, that's one heck of a bold-faced lie. I personally like their prices on Ignition knockoffs. The regular price on a pair of them with softer foam is $238. That's already insane, but swap in harder foam and add a carrying bag, and the regular price on that skyrockets to $400! laugh.gif Do they honestly think anyone believes that? Or even better, look at the regular price on a pair of the Ion pads with bars. $1800!! Their "sale" price is equally unbelievable... $580? There's no way those are worth $580 plus *checks* $160 shipping. That's the same price as a Cobalt Flux Doubles Kit!

It obviously fools some people who don't have experience or haven't bothered to do a little reseach... I know a few days on these forums for me and I already felt like I knew a thing or two about different pads, which gives me a considerable ego boost laugh.gif

These aren't TX-1000's, I'm pretty sure.

I think what dem0nic meant by saying they're all TX-1000s is not that they're all necessarily identical to the TX-1000, but that the underlying construction of them is probably all the same, which is to say it's junk. This hasn't been verified, as no one has taken apart a TX-3000 or TX-4000 to my knowledge. In fact, I'm not sure how you'd go about taking apart a TX-3000 seeing as it has no screws. Sledgehammer, maybe? o_O Maybe they are different somehow, but I really doubt the changes in the TX-3000 and 4000 go beyond the exterior.
