We agree! Bigger would have been better. However from our initial testing we found for weight and clearance considerations this was this optimal size.
It's hard to tell from the pictures but SnapPads actually add an additional 61% of surface area to each jack. Times that by 4 or 6 jacks, it definitely adds up. We have yet to have any reports of jacks with SnapPads sinking into soft ground.
Finally, the rubber material acts as a vibration dampener so you get a solid yet soft feel inside your rig.
We realize they may not be for everyone but for those who don't want to mess with storing and placing pads every time you set up.
Thanks for the question! Have a great day!
