Carpet Choices for a FRC Field

I was wondering where to get a 27’ x 52’ carpet. I did some research and found that carpets are only sold in certain lengths that are smaller than the FRC regulation sized carpet. Neyland III carpet was the recommended carpet that is most similar to that of the official FRC carpet. I was wondering what types of carpet people are using?

Often times (and the official field) get 2 identical pieces of 15 ft x (Long) ft and splice them down the middle with carpet tape (see: Carpet tape)

ok

Many teams use 4 rolls of 8ft wide carpet because those are easier to store than the 15ft wide rolls. This does require more tape when putting up a field since you now have 3 seams instead of 1, but it’s much easier to deal with since it fits inside most storage areas standing up.
