So here is the deal I was looking into both the deckadence or the spaghetti mat, the deckadence is higher quality but the price goes along with it. So I went with the spaghetti mat simply because of price. The thing is it wasn't long before the top got really hard and even brittle. So I went back to deckadence and explained what happened, they said that was because of no UV stabilizers in the spaghetti mat and not marine rated. Anyways they did give me a good discount and the deckadence so now at least I got the good stuff!
