    I was looking into getting mats (instead of plywood) and stumbled upon composite/plastic cribbing. Does anyone here use them? Thoughts and opinions on them?

    Supposedly stronger than wood, and the notches are to lock it together.

    These are Fairly wide spread in the rescue. In that application I find they are a pain due to our set space (cribbing under a car, between two objects etc.). They can be difficult to get into place and tight in some situations. Using them for equipment set up I could see them being more valuable. Except they generally come in 18'' length (would be nicer a little longer).
