Good for a balanced lifestyle ..

Super fast shipping!
The unit I got: its bottom is off-centered by an amount just shy of 1/8". No, this wouldn't create an extra balance problem for me, but Manufacturing should be careful about it. I want a 'balance' board to be properly put.
In all fairness, just because I haven't looked at the competition, doesn't mean the problem isn't common. In the end, one gets what one pays for, so I am not really complaining. But just reviewing it accurately. (I used a caliper to check the distance from the edge of the board to the black edge of the bottom support). After seeing a few competition brands' photos here on Amazon, which all look very similar, I figured these items are being manufactured by a similar kind of cottage industry. No problem with that.
The unit is rated to a weight limit of 330 lbs. I doubt a person of that weight will ever think of standing on this one :-)
But the plastic at the bottom is not that thick to take the shearing force off 330lbs. No I haven't done any measurements on this.
Anyways, I like the functionality of this unit. It is very useful. What is also amusing is some people giving this product a one-star rating because they find it hard to balance on it. Not a very balanced review is it? :-)
(I have written to the seller telling them about the offset issue).
