I'm planning an enclosure for my Ranger Tug R21-EC.  It will have clear panels that I will want to roll up. I've ordered samples of 20 and 30 gauge plastipane.  I want something that is reasonably durable and that will roll up without too much hassle.  The 20 gauge sample seems almost TOO light-weight while the 30 gauge seems too heavy.  These are little 3 x 4 inch pieces I'm judging. 

Comparing different products...in the same gauge are Regalite and Plastipane the same "softness" as far as easy to roll?

Thanks!

Hi David,
I recommend the 30 gauge product. It rolls nicely and is much more optically clear than the 20 gauge Plastipane. Regalite and Plastipane are about the same stiffness.
Thanks, Matt Grant
