If you order through this German site, the regular pad (just leave the sheepskin off) is only $85.
If you search for a thread started by me titled "Deliriously amazing Mattes fun" or something, there's many pages of reviews.
Glad I am not the only one that loves this style pad. I was looking this site, playing around with colors etc. I can get the plain style for $91 which includes shipping. I was hoping to find something cheaper though. Off to check the other sites you linked. Thanks!
