Carpet Questions, Choosing between Anso Nylons
We are building and need carpet for 3 bedrooms upstairs & finished basement rec room & another bedroom, plus stairs. After much reading, I had narrowed it down to Smart Strand or Shaw Anso Nylon but pricing through our builder has steered us towards the Shaw Anso Nylon.
We had a really bad experience with our last carpet at our old house. I don't know what kind of material it was but it did not hold up well and was extremely uncomfortable from day one, so we are over-analyzing this decision and could use some input. We have 2 kids, 8 & 10 and no pets at this time (but the kids are dying for a puppy.)
3 Carpets we are considering are:
Shaw 100% Anso BCF Nylon called Chance Encounter. It comes in I, II & III. We really like the Chance Encounter III the best b/c it is the softest but could save a bit by doing the II.

Second choice is a Shaw Tuftex Move On Up Z6968 with a 46.8 Face Weight. THis is the only info I have found so far about it.
Our last choice is a Shaw Broadway EA042. It is also a Anso 100% BCF Nylon. This is the one I can't find any information about online.
We plan to go with a 8 lb pad. Would love some feedback abou the carpets we are considering.
