5 STARS FOR THE FIRST BLOCK
on February 19, 2016
This is a review for the second block that arrived. I ordered one of these blocks initially and it's exactly what I wanted; good size, good weight, solid, stable. So, I ordered a second block.
It arrived smelling of mould. I informed Amazon then waited a week or so to see if the smell would dissipate. It didn't so I did an exchange. This third block has arrived with the same mouldy smell. I just spoke with Amazon and making another exchange with a request that someone check this item before it's mailed out! I've also emailed Manduka and waiting a reply. The Amazon rep. is also contacting the company they deal with. 5 STARS FOR THE FIRST BLOCK.
Fingers crossed for the next replacement because it's a great block - far superior to the soft (GAIAM) blocks I own, though they have their place at times for a restorative asana practice.
The Manduka mat is also wonderful.
