    Andrew, I like the look and the idea, but haven't seen it yet. Hoping they incorporated it at the PANTS display this week in Pennsylvania. If so, I'll share more information on Friday.

    It is a nice look. Wi outlast the real stuff with the proper install.
    Here in Phoenix, we have the small version and also a "Mega" version.
    Mega outsells the other 20 to 1. Mega looks more like flagstone, because
    of the size.

    You will need to use Polymeric sand due to the false joints.

    The aspect ratio is more than likely over 5 , which makes it not a
    good choice for a driveway. But, some manufactures are saying smilar
    products with AR over 4 are ok for driveway use. And, the are giving a
    warranty on it when used Ina driveway application.

    Peace,

    Rex

    To me the Techo flagstone appears somewhat slenderical. It's my opinion that some of the shapes could stand too be a little more broader.

    It looks alright, I agree it could be broader.

    I like the Arbel better, but it doesn't matter since Techo isn't here in
    St. Louis. Is Techo sold under another brand? A lot of our Pave loc stuff resembles Techo.

    Mixed thoughts on it, I personally don't like any of the mega stuff, just too damn heavy to lift. I'll reserve judgement til I get my hands on some of it.

    I got the email, also. Not sure what I think until I see it in person, but I think I'll stick with the real thing for now.

    Kirk,
    You'll be happy to know that it is in the PANTS display booth.
