*Serta Pure Response 100% latex. Not bad! Not bad at all!*

I just had the opportunity to lay on two very nice 100% latex mattresses over at a local dept. store. They just started carrying this new line by Serta. It's called Pure Response. Of course, they have their own names for each mattress model. The one I preferered was a cushion firm called "Ethereal". It's 100% talalay latex. Even the x-firm edge is latex. I really liked the feel of this. Supportive, but with just enough "cush" for the hips and back. A quilted cover. The other one also is 100% talalay latex, but it's got a convoluted comfort layer. I also liked the feel of that mattress. In fact, I wouldn't know which one to choose! They both have a 30 warranty. If I had seen these before I bought mine, I would highly consider buying one. They hadn't been out yet, though. There was a third 100% latex model with a memory foam comfort layer. I didn't even lay on that one since I'm not a fan of memory foam. But, someone who does, might really like it.

I found a couple Serta Pure Response mattresses online that look similar (different model names):

Anyway, for anyone looking for a latex mattress with a long warranty, I suggest checking out this Serta line. Has anyone here tried them?

My post was a cut and paste and should have been in quotation marks. It was objective, not subjective, and clearly stated that widespread usage has been changing. I posted it because I chuckled when I read "I just had the opportunity to lay on two very nice 100% latex mattresses over at a local dept. store" as I envisioned the audience. Frequent posters on mattress sites may want to know the difference, may enjoy the distinction, or may not care. It's not important.
BTW, IIRC that Serta has a 32 racetrack w/ a 28 core, so may result in the standard problem of feeling great at night, and terrible in the morning.

Okaaaay, you're forgiven.

Now, back to the Pure Response....I was thinking that my mother might like this. I'm happy with my zippered, custom configuration. Anyway, what's a 32 racetrack? Is that the edging down the sides? I notice it doesn't wrap around, but I suppose they don't think people will sit on the end. (My husband does, though, when he puts his shoes on.) And, you say the 8 inch core is only 28 ILD? Wow. Doesn't seem firm enough, although it certainly felt like it yesterday. And, I couldn't determine the cut-out ILD. I went back last night and tried the model this store called "Transcend". It has the convoluted comfort layer on top which actually made the mattress feel very nice and yet still supportive. NOT a pillowtop, though.

How were you able to find out these stats? I asked the saleswoman if she knew the "particulars" such as ILDs, etc. Nope. Let me know how you found out the information. Thanks.
