I waited to write this review. I waited over a year, to see if the mat would finally be broken in. It is not broken in. It's just as slippery as when I first tried it. Yoga is hard enough that you shouldn't have to worrying about injuring yourself because of the mat. (Injure yourself because you did a position incorrectly like you're supposed to.) I was cheap mat guy for years. This was to be my first adult, "I can kinda do downward dog now"/not the sweatiest and most nervous guy in the room, mat. Now I often use one of my old cheap ones instead of this one. I kick myself for not getting a different, expensive mat. Guess I'll have to get a expensive mat (again).
I called Manduka when I first got it. They told me to check out the "salt" video (an athletic woman dumping coarse salt then sensually rubbing, coming back later and yoga-ing it all up). I did the coarse sea salt thing and the only result I got was my girlfriend suspiciously wondering (after she returned from a trip) why, for weeks, she kept stepping on sand or something in our apartment. The sea salt did nothing. Washing and scrubbing it in the tub--nothing. In the end, Manduka sent me a nice Manuka rag thing, for my hands to grip, and I have to use that when I do vinyasa. But I didn't want to pay that much for a rag: I wanted a reliable yoga mat.
Scrubbed it. Salted it. Let my cats bat at it. I sent all my energy and good vibes at it. Nothing. Based on other reviews, I'm not alone. It gets two stars because the customer service person at Manduka was super helpful. I'd give them another shot but not this particular product.
Mats I've owned in the past.
-basic box store mat. Died after 2 years of light use.
-Jade Harmony mat. Smelled like a tire. Sunlight destroyed it in 2 years. Sad.
-Yoga accessories mat 1/4". This was a great budget mat from Amazon that lasted almost 4 years with moderate use.
And now I've graduated to Manduka. Namaste.
Long story a little bit shorter--- I ordered myself a purple mat like the one I got my mom. It is exponentially less slippery than the thrive color.
All that being said, MAYBE it's a color issue? Or maybe it's just that this batch of purple was better than the batch of thrive. I'm not sure, but it may be worth trying different colors if the one you get is super slippery. Who knows!?
The PRO feels more substantial, but in practice doesn't make much of a difference for me. I've been practicing on and off for about 10 years now, and always on a wood floor, so I don't feel like I need the hefty protection. Not sure it is necessary for most people. So the extra weight, cost, and bulk doesn't seem to be worth it.
I like the X for it's extreme lightness and it had no slipperiness issues from the get go. Couldn't get used to the bumpy surface. Since I rarely use my mat with my shoes on, the bump feel on my hand and feet ends up being somewhat distracting. But I can see it being very sturdy and convenient for someone who will use it with their athletic shoes on.
