Floortech: Help w/Karastan SmartStrand version quality
Floortech: you wrote the following reply to someone about a year ago (June 2011) and I'm hoping you can clarify it for me in my situation:
Here's your statement:
Karastan does not have 1st quality promo items and he knows that. If it is not striped back, it is not Karastan. Karastan is not what it once was at all since Mohawk got their hands on it.They actually have polyesters in the line. Their are many many many many better choices for your money than Karastan. Sorry to rain on the parade.
My question is regarding the Karastan version of SmartStrand. It says w/Dupont Sorona on the back and is called Nature's Bounty. I called for the specs and they said it's: 45 oz face weight, 5.50 per inch twist and has a density of 1968 per cu. yd. Please tell me this is actual SmartStrand and isn't a "polyester"!! Do you think this is a good quality carpet? (I'll have to go back to the store to see if the sample has the "stripes" on the back if that's what's important. Please advise)
Thanks for your opinion (and/or others who can help!)
