I'm looking to purchase a new bed. I've read a lot of posts on this site which have been very helpful in filtering the good from the bad. My wife likes the bed we have, but I'm not too thrilled. Based on my research (reading posts here) I think that an innerspring latex hybrid is the best bet for me. I live in NJ, 08701, and I would prefer to find someone loacally so that I can try the mattress, but I havent found anyone. I work within a short commute to Scott Jordan in NYC, but the Berkley Ergo is a bit out of my budget. The Flexus Body Print seems to be what I'm looking for, but I'm obviously not in a position to try it. I'm curious, if anyone has any info on it?

My current bed is a dux 1001, which is basically a coil bed with a pillow top. I find it a bit to unconforming, and too bouncy, and I think the foam layer in addition to the latex of the flexus will make it softer and more conforming especially with extra latex top.

P.S. Thanks for the great site!

Hi Iyor,

I don't have any personal experience with it but they will provide you with any information you need about it. Hopefully, someone that has one will see your post but I would also keep in mind that a mattress can feel and perform completely differently for someone else than it would for you.

You can see more details about the Leggett & Platt for 3 zone Body Print pocket coil.

There are a few possibilities in the Central NJ area listed in post #2 here that may be worth calling to see if they have a mattress that fits your criteria on their floor but there are not a lot of options in your general area. The Philadelphia/Wilmington/Trenton list here and the Monroe Township list here would probably have more options available for a similar type of mattress although they may involve a longer drive.

I just wanted to let you know that I tried the body print mattress and really loved it. I'm not quite sold on latex foam mattresses but have to admit the ones at plexus really felt great. But being the old school guy I am and I know I'm comfortable Bowl with innerspring mattresses I'm looking to buy one in the firm this weekend. I tried custom comforts which are built really well the cost almost twice the price for the same quality of mattress and of course I've been to ortho sit and sleep all the others and under wild by their one-sided mattresses. I will give you a real good review when I have mine and have slept on it for a week or two.

Do any other online retailers sell a Body Print coil hybrid bed? How much would a mattress like this cost to ship cross country being it can't be rolled up like foam layer beds? What's a typical warranty and return policy on these types mattresses?

I too think a coil bed may be best for me, after trying latex foam and memory foam beds they both cause lower back pain from my pelvis sinking in too much. I think this trizone body print coil system might do the trick to keep my butt from not sinking in so much (back sleeper).

Can't find a local store with this type bed so online buying seems to be only option.. Hence shipping costs and return policies are very important.

I don't know which of them use Body Print pocket coils and there are other zoned pocket coils as well but post #2 here has some links to some latex innerspring hybrid mattresses that you could look through or talk to to find out more information about the springs they use.

While warranties can vary and aren't an indication of the useful life of a mattress ... a fairly "standard" warranty for a high quality latex hybrid mattress would be somewhere in the range of 10 years non prorated.

I don't know the shipping costs but you could call some of them to find out what it would cost to ship their mattresses to your location. Some pocket coils can be roll packed for shipping so they can be shipped by courier but this will vary by manufacturer. Bay Bed for example is a tri zone pocket coil that is a component pocket coil/latex hybrid that can be shipped through courier and I believe that Arizona Premium's latex/pocket coil hybrid also ships compressed through courier.

Thank you, is pocket coil the best type coil system to use? Hybrid just means latex or polyfoam ontop of coils? Are hybrid matttresses some of the newer concepts in bedding?

Hi needanewmattress,

Thank you, is pocket coil the best type coil system to use?


There really is no "best" type of innerspring because it depends on preferences and on which type of innerspring is inside the mattress "as a whole" that is the best match for you in terms of PPP. There is more about the different types of innersprings in this article and in post #10 here .

A a pocket coil is a good choice for those that prefer less motion transfer in their mattress and it is also more contouring than innersprings that have coils that are joined together with helical wires. In some cases they can be less durable than other types of innersprings but this is not usually an issue because the support core of a mattress is rarely the weakest link in a mattress.

Hybrid just means latex or polyfoam ontop of coils?


A hybrid means a combination of two standard mattress categories. As an example a hybrid between a latex mattress which uses latex from top to bottom and an innerspring mattress which generally uses an innerspring with polyfoam comfort layers would be a latex/innerspring hybrid. Another example would be a mattress which uses memory foam over innersprings because a memory foam mattress usually has memory foam comfort layers and a polyfoam support core so it would be a hybrid between a typical memory foam mattress and a typical innerspring mattress. It's a "loose" term in other words with no exact definition which is used to provide a very general description of a mattress that is a combination of two different mattress categories.

Are hybrid matttresses some of the newer concepts in bedding?


They aren't particularly new no but they are becoming more common in the industry as manufacturers look for ways to combine materials and components together in different ways to take advantage of the properties and strengths of different materials and components and to differentiate themselves from other manufacturers.

thanks for your help. honestly there is just too many choices, too much info and it's all a bit overwhelming. I'm just looking for "specific" manufacturers you recommend that make quality hybrid tri-zone coil mattresses which they can ship. called a couple of the listed manufacturers under your membership section and was not impressed with their customer service or knowledge over the phone.
