$32.50/lb Chabura Matzos from Crown Heights. Some are thick and some are thin, but all are very crispy, thanks to my methods of packing and storing.
I found the thickness of CH Matzos to be very inconsistent. Care to share your methods of packing and storing?

We got the WW last year instead of our usual part WW, it was thicker and just not as good. We switched back to part WW this year and it was great as usual.
Not only was the WW thicker, but it was also more cracked, go figure.

PT Semi WW had a nice taste, was very thin, very crunchy, etc. Clear winner.

There's a reason no one asks for your TRs  ;D

FTR, I find my taste buds (or food preferences/liking) to be very different than @Dan's, but I still like reading his TRs.
It's hard to take the taste buds of anyone that swears by parve cholent too seriously ;)

got at evergreen 2 lbs of hidur hamatzot for $22.00.  It was however very thick. Definitely prefer Shatzer matza (for $26/lb)

Tried Shatzer plain and WW. Not nearly as thin or crunchy as PT 1/2WW, which was a relative steal at $25.25/lb.

Not only was the WW thicker, but it was also more cracked, go figure.

Nothing surprising or rocket science required to figure that out.

WW is harder to work with, and simply breaks apart much more than white flour based doughs. That is why it's thicker (or else there would be 0 shleimos), and they simply are more brittle.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

WW from Montreal and Shatzer were not problematic at all.

They probably use less WW.

I believe I posted before, that having your matzos packed in 2lbs (or 1lb) corrugated boxes, opening them up only as needed, goes a long way in keeping moisture out and maintaining crispness. Also storing in a places with low to no humidity will help.

Inconsistency of a product is never a good sign

My pupa tzeilim were delicious as usual. They put them into a bag for the first time this year. A bunch broke while taking them out.

I got upset after the first box when I only found 1 whole Matzah, second and third boxes were better B"H
