http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8204257221&category=21188&rd=1

This is the pad I eyeballed before I switched to somebody else and ended up with a TX-1000...when I wasn't supposed to.

A friend of my mother's wants a brand new pad, so I'm thinking I'd sell her my TX-1000 since it's just her kid and I doubt he'd break it if I told him just to tap it. I'm 160 pounds too and I've yet to break my pad. zomg

The link up there is the pad I originally wanted. I played on a similar one constantly at Fry's and it was just so damn good to me. I'd finally have a reason to play Doubles a lot more often. My Search results here fail so I'd like some information.

EDIT-Is it just me or do those look like TX-1000 panels? They look unusually reflective, not like the kind I've played on. Those brackets make it look secure though.

Just remember, you get what you pay for. $55 for a metal pad? Bah. It's either a piece of junk, or stolen.

It IS a tx-1000 =p

Hate to break it to you, but the "Tx-1000" is sold by hundreds of stores and has about 5 varieties. Thats just a "2nd" or "3rd Gen" tx-1000, its gonna be the same sensors, the same control box, the same buttons, the same hard panels. The company that makes them just decides to change the look a bit every once in a while, to try to fool more people into thinking it isnt a tx-1000. But it is, those brackets might help a bit, but not very much.

Sorry kiddo

I bought one, and it worked fine - while I was still a standard player. You get into hard 8's/9's and it WILL break.

Don't even ask about playing MAX300 on it.

I played Drop Out and it broke the top sheet of pressboard it had under it during the jumps. Also, the sensor(read: one in the middle) is made out of aluminum foil and will stop responding within 3 months.

Save the cash, get a Afterburner or Flux.

You could easily replace the aluminum... i mean.. its aluminium....
or mod it with a sheet of copper.

What do you mean by "top sheet"?

No, really, request lock. I'm going to sell mine and use the money towards a RedOctane Ignition 3.0 to compliment my 2.0. I'm selling it to some pre-teen kids anyways.

And FYI: I did Drop Out on a TX-1000 weighing 160 pounds and I didn't break it.
