Phoenix,

Thanks for the reply; what do you think about the UD Freedom? Is the synthetic dunlop latex as good as natural dunlop latex?

Hi filterflyguy,

I switched your post to a new topic so that it's easier to find and doesn't get "buried" in a more general topic.

Thanks for the reply; what do you think about the UD Freedom? Is the synthetic dunlop latex as good as natural dunlop latex?


Synthetic Continuous pour latex is a high quality and durable material relative to other types of foam so there would certainly be no weak links in this mattress in terms of durability. The Ultimate Dream Freedom also has 12 different possible configurations that lets you fine tune the comfort and support of the mattress after a purchase so it has a great deal of flexibility in terms of how it can be configured to "match" the needs and preferences of each person without needing to exchange a layer.

There is also more about the different types and blends of latex in post #6 here . Synthetic continuous pour Dunlop will be very similar in terms of "feel" to Dunlop with a higher natural rubber content but it will tend to be less elastic and resilient than 100% natural Dunlop and will be less "supportive" than 100% natural Dunlop in the same firmness level as well because it has a lower compression modulus (the rate that a material becomes firmer with deeper compression). It is also made in softer versions than most molded 100% natural Dunlop and in the softest versions would be comparable to the softest Talalay.

In terms of durability ... based on Mountaintop's testing and the experience of different manufacturers so far it is very promising and appears to be fairly comparable to 100% natural Dunlop but it hasn't been available for long enough to know for certain based on actual long term experience.

Phoenix,

Thanks for all of your help! We decided to go with the UD Eurotop instead of the Freedom. I agree with you that either mattress would be a great choice but in the end we thought that the Talalay latex would be best for us. I'll post again after we've slept on it for a while.

Thanks again,
Filterflyguy
