soft flooring: sobella, earthscape, flexitec

My earlier post got lost or deleted. I'll be less specific in case it was the later..I will not list vendor names and prices just in case.
I had priced soft flooring and found one company that sells a vinyl sheet flooring with a fiberglass layer to have a higher price. They then give you a 25% contractor discount for a new build, which brings it back to the price of the other companies with no such discount for me

I was wondering if you think the Mannington Sobella is all that much better, or is Flexitec, and IVC Earthscape just as good?

Please share your experiences, thx

RE: soft flooring: sobella, earthscape, flexitec

I have just had Sobella installed and it looks to be a very tough product. unfortunately I am going thru an warranty issue at the moment because what was installed looked very little like the sample, so I think it will end up being replaced. They have a great warranty. Other than that one issue, it is comfy to walk on and looks a cut above regular sheet goods. I chose it because I am on a drug that causes foot pain and I could not bear ceramic tiles.

thx Blondie,
It looks like I really need the 13.2 ft wide size of the flexitec/earthscape so I'll be choosing one of those. The floorpro website has a lot of info
