I'm not saying anything, it's just a synthesis of what is available. If you have a correct feedback about the Foilmount plate and think that the Best board has a reasonably strong bottom skin, why not. As you have 2 unknowns in your pb, I would suggest to wait until at least one of them is solved.
I frankly fail to see the point. The stuff on alibaba is just one photo. In many cases it is not even clear if they sell the board or foil. How would I make purchasing decision based on this scarce info? Do I have to beg the vendor to send me some more photos, and then go through all the hassle arranging group buy, payment by some obscure method, etc. JNJ is simply in another league as far as customer experience is concerned.
