I’ve seen that rolling pin and honestly i dont know if I would spend that amount of money on a rolling pin…I know its heavier than the standard rolling pin but like everyone I get results with the mat. It allows you to roll fondant really tthin..thus saving fondant and it keeps it sealed while rolling out so it doesn’t dry out. Mines slides around something too but it depends on the surface you are rollling on. I the orginial and have rolled out fondant to cover 12 inch cakes no problem. To me its a better option than the rolling pin..that rolling pin is heavy so I would think it would be difficult to push round as well.
