No it had a "W" prefix which is a designation for blended. Was also able to confirm an ID number with TG.

Sorry the W prefix was for radium. I used the ID number to confirm the TG layer.

Good to hear. Hopefully that means I'm not far behind.

well, it arrived last month, and i drew the short end of the stick

in hoping for 24ILD, i ended up receiving the low end of the +/- 2ILD, which effectively is just a stiff 22ILD

the hope was >=24ILD, but i rolled the dice and am likely out $~400 :(

its damn near perfect, just a touch too soft. i feel like something that trended 25-26 would have been flawless. i threw the 28 talalay on top, making the 24 the middle layer (34 SOL dunlop base) and its a touch better, but still hammocking a little. some days it's minimal pain, others its a bit more pronounced. trying to give it a full 2-3mo before i make any final decisions, and hopefully some of the prices come back down to earth!

my wife LOVES it however. so i may actually just cut my side off, and only have to buy a twin XL and do a split firmness. will likely order 28ILD

does anyone know if you can request a 'soft' with your order, or you get what you get. meaning, if TG has these stickers on them, can you just ask for something that measured in the 26-27ILD when ordering a 28?

here is my test report, does anyone know how to decipher the 1, 2, 3 and then the corresponding 3 columns they represent?

Pretty sure those columns are QA testing that is done in several places on each layer to ensure what you are getting is within range given for a specific ILD number on the tag. I doubt TG (manufacturer) would go through the trouble of selecting a single layer in a specific (tighter) range for you but as long as it wasn't special order (common firmness, blended 24ILD is not common) then you could probably ask one of the retailers to do that and they might be able fulfill your request (assuming they had what you needed in stock already). You could use zoning to fix alot of the issues you're dealing with but it's also good to experiment on the DIY side to know what's possible.

thanks, yes asking the third party to potentially select a softer 28ild would be the preference, assuming they order from TG who puts these stickers on (unless other Manu do this too, my other layers never had this sticker but I suppose they could have just removed it)

my last attempt to add a slight stiffness to the mattress is the encasement. I'm still just on the latex over a sheet

do you think the wool encasement from APM will add a touch of stiffness that might push it a touch firmerz or maybe firmer isn't even the right word, maybe it will do just enough to prevent my butt area from sinking in a touch too far

thoughts?
