Some fitters like to make sure the board is at the same height at the mat, if you are hitting off a mat. In some cases they have cut a piece out of the mat so that the board sits level with the top of the mat. If you are hitting off of a mat realize that your feet are standing on top of the "grass", they will not settle into the mat as they would settle into the grass. Because of this I personally do not worry about the thickness of the board when hitting from a mat. Also if I am personally checking my own irons I will have my golf shoes on and I feel the soft spike raise me just a little more on a mat.
