Well this was a quick project. The hardest part was the paint job. OK I might be in trouble.... Moderators let me know if I should delete the photo. But here it is!

Got my DownUnder Board today - the 2.0 "Tour Edition" that is adjustable and accommodates flared feet at setup. Took almost two weeks from my order, although the initial order email said they were est

Tom. Regarding the pro board dimensions- looking down at address is each panel 10 1/2” long (heel to toe) and 14-18” wide?

The board started out different sizes by the manufacturer as seen below. Then they came out with the adjustable board but kept the heel to toe at 10.5".   I already had a 12" board so I used that. I made my width to 17 " because that was what I felt comfortable with.  18" felt just a little to wide for me.   

Blue Board - 10.5" x 14.5"
White Board - 12" x 16"
Black Board - 12" x 18"
"Pro" Adjustable Board - 10.5" x 14"-18"

Assume this was directed at me. You get a 15 minute video with purchase. I did not purchase the impact bag. 

I keep this in my practice bag and throw it down for 10-15 swings to help loosen up the hips before hitting balls. I've made some great progress this winter using the board and the Planemate.

Thinking that I'm also likely to make a custom version of this for myself. I've got some pressboard in the garage. I'll get Kirke or my wife to help me: I'm going to take my stance and then mark my foot position for a wedge shot and some mid-iron. Kind of a hybrid of the version 1 and 2 of the DUB.

I placed a metal yardstick on the hitting mat and took some swings then looked down for the measurement and added an inch. The additional inch was to get a wider stance than what I was used to. This was to help in getting grounded and a little more of an athletic stance. The pro board is at 18" wide. I wound up with 17"

Just to make sure, you are doing a length for the mid iron and the width for wedge. Only need 1 board.

I'm gonna decide. Because I'm planning to build to my stance, I'm planning to have the front foot flared (like you can do with the Version 2.0 board). Getting all the angles correct with two flared sides might make for a very odd piece, where it might end up being simpler to have to boards.

As you can see, the 2.0 version of the board is two pieces of what I'm guessing is molded 1/4" ABS plastic, joined with two thumbscrews and wing nuts with slots for adjustment.
From a purely looks standpoint, replacing the sticker (which isn't applied perfectly straight anyway) with a laser-etched logo would going a long way toward making the board more professional and premium.
I've been messing around with 9-to-3 swings in the basement using the board. It's a nice reminder to rotate and not sway. This is something I'm working very hard on this offseason. I also took it outside fully extended and tried a few "dry" swings with my driver without a ball and think it will be helpful with maintaining balance with my longer clubs.
Is it worth $110+ with taxes and shipping? That questions still remains to be answered during my winter practice sessions. I have these very specific problems that I'm working on, and I think it will help me. I also have the Planemate lying around that is almost solely for takeaway practice, and I also have the DST Compressor 8 iron that until recently hadn't been swung in almost a year. I'm no stranger to training aids, but they have specific purposes for my game.
 

I made my own from MFD; it took some significant time though to get it right and then painting it. I think the main benefit to this point is i picked up
a jigsaw (long slots have to be cut)and some woodworking skills! I imagine the wood is harder on the shoes compared to ABS though!

Def easier w/ 2 boards

I tried it and it didn't result in any change (positive or negative) to my early extension problem, so that means that my early extension is caused mostly by right shoulder dipping movement. 

Going to focus on fixing my upper body issues and then come back to the Down under board.

More often than not, early extension is the result of a lower body issue rather than an upper body issue. 
 

If your right shoulder is dipping, it’s likely because it’s trying to compensate for something you’re doing incorrectly in the waist or lower body.

What was happening previously was my left arm would stay pinned to my chest in the downswing, so my left side would start to move downwards a bit, but then in order to not get steep, my right shoulder would dip down, and then i would early extend. So a combo of upper body and lower body things going on. Working on fixing it and finally figured out what feel i need to feel in order to not do that.
