8 lb pad or better?
We are putting a SmartStrand frieze (Mohawk's Fort Zach, if anyone's familiar) in a second floor game room. The salesman is pushing a 30 lb pad that's like a very dense, smooth sponge and is twice the price of the aggregate foam 8 lb pad. I've never heard of anyone using a 30 lb pad. Is it worth it? The room will be primarily a teenage hangout with a pool table, pinball machine, video games and overnights on air mattresses. Is an 8 lb pad "good enough"?
