Boon sports looks like nice stuff, but unless I couldn't find it on their site, has no prices listed and only does school-sized orders for $500+ worth of stuff, which might have worked a few years ago, but since moving it's just me and a padholding slave for now.
I'm going to opt for the $29 Ringside. As long as that dome air pad does the job, if it breaks down in 1.5-2 years, **** it, it was only $29.

I use one of these- works great. I've taken strikes from big strong guys with it without much trouble.
