Here is a list of all the manufacturers I know of, if you know of any other let me know:

The manufacturers should be able to hook you up with any possible dealers in your area.

I have a carafino. I dont use it for many reasons.
Firstly when it was sent the board was broken. It was replaced with a decent one after much hassle. I really just cant be bothered as we rarely have decent conditions but mainly i have 4 custom boards from Newind and they are great...saying that i havnt tried one of them. I also got a bunch of underground boards including s skim which i have used maybe 10 or 20 mins and cant be bothered with. I just dont have the time ti be mucking about with new stuff really. Always seems a good idea at the time! So there you have it unused carafino with the proper board unused and taking up space.....

I have tried this thing (friend of mine bought Carafino on web) but didn't get excited. It's hard enough to learn use this stuff. Also noticed that pads was very uncomfortable. Thought it was 3 years ago maybe something has changed since then.

too much apparenty...£600 plus postage.

I hear the £ may be devalued approx 15% soon so if you are overseas wait then for a discount!!
