Hey all, my time is getting closer for my large egg (fathers day gift to myself) and I am thinking about the egg mates.I am getting the large egg and the adj rig with  the oval stone and was wondering if  these mates would support the weight of the AR if I needed a place to set it down stone included?

  • Eggshelves are bigger than Eggmates for what it's worth.

    Both can handle the weight of the AR -IMO.

    I set mine on the mates all the time.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

  • I greatly prefer the shelves to the mates.  More room to work with and easier to clean.
