Can anyone who owns a RedOctane dance pad unzip it and look at the underside of the top cover for me? Is there a slit kinda in the middle? I've never noticed it before and I'm not sure if my pad ripped. At first I thought it was a rip, but thats a really weird spot, so I'm not sure.

There should not be a slit. That is a rip. I had to start taping my foam pieces together with clear packing tape so the inside didn't rip. Try taping it shut, or if you have the EB warranty, just wait till it starts dying, return it and get the replacement, and make sure you tape the pieces together.

Didn't get mine at EB, so unfortunately don't have that. Guess I'll have to use tape. What a weird spot for it to rip though.

They rip in very strange ways. Make sure you tape the foam together, too.

Wouldn't it be really tough to take apart that way though? Mine goes with me from school to home so I just take it apart and put the pieces back in their box. Don't wanna tape it together if its just going to crap it up when I take it apart to travel.

Hmm, maybe. Mine fits in my trunk put together (I have an Aveo, so my trunk is kind of small) and I don't really transport it very often. I just know that that is the only way I've found to keep it from ripping the lining and ruining the sensors.

Sounds like it's time for a Cobalt Flux.

That would be even harder to tranport.

(And, personally - I don't like metal pads... But I'm definitely in the minority. It's that they hurt my back...)

Well, how do you step on them, toes or flatfooted? Flatfooted is definitely much better. I usually stick close to the brackets (if you don't know what I mean, watch videos of MegaManX. [legend road 7974, preferably])

But yeah, before I got my CF, my RedOctane pad ripped in strange places.

I play on my toes... I've tried playing flatfooted, but it hurts the arches of my feet. (As a note, I play barefooted, or sock footed.) Do you stick close to the inner or outer brackets?

Flatfooted is awkward for a while, but using shoes with good arch support helps. CFs can handle shoes. The inner brackets, because it keeps your feet closer to two arrows at once, allowing less leg movement, which keeps your stamina going. (It works for PSMO up until the death run...gah...must kill crossovers!) Flatfooted also keeps tension off of your calf muscles, again, keeping well needed energy for catas and 10-footers.
