Ok I've added the flash score for you, but I think you may have been a bit harsh on the presentation of the product. I think 7.5 at least would have been a fairer score. I mean the packaging is purely a means of protecting the product and marketing, this it does adequately although a plastic cylinder may have been a better alternative. As for the presentation of the mat itself, the graphic is quite pleasant and I like it. It looks like a really good mat actually for the money.

I also changed you Specialtech link to a Yoyotech one and adjusted the price accordingly.

Ok :) I found specialtech the cheapest in my google search..

The 7.5 seems fair, it just felt a bit empty, hense I was fairly harsh.
Can someone tell me how to do the cover image and then it can go live?
