A few weeks ago, in a nearby town, I put a deposit on a really nice S---y euro-top pocket-coil bed called a "Back Saver." The sales person was EXTREMELY helpful and professional.

Today I was in another furniture store to look for a part, and I noticed a huge sale on K-- K-- beds. One of them cost (even at supposed half price) about $200 more than the bed I put the deposit on. It was super soft and comfortable, and had quite a lot more coils than the other bed. The sales person was a "let me sell you something right now -- I'll give you a fabulous deal!" kind of person, nothing like the down-to-earth lady I dealt with in the other town. But when I mentioned I'd already put a deposit on a different bed, he matched that price and even knocked off an additional $10. I have to decide by tomorrow (the special sale ends then).

I came home and tried to find information about this particular bed, and couldn't find anything -- mattress companies and dealers vary the product names and don't list product numbers, apparently to keep people from comparing mattress deals. A mattress dealer actually told me this.

Anyway, even though I couldn't find specifics, I found a couple of sites that said people were widely reporting that K-- K-- beds began to sag after a few years. I don't understand why, with that many coils, but anyway... now I'm confused.

My gut says to stay away from slick salespeople. I'm also not sure what to make of the fact that this second brand supposedly sags -- it has so many coils. But I have to figure this out by tomorrow.

What has been your experience with the new euro-top pocket-coil innerspring mattresses? Thanks.

Listen to your gut. It's usually right.

Thanks. Although the other bed was cushier and seemed pretty wonderful. {confusion}

Have not seen this promoted in US.
Everyone we know saves for a Tempurpedic-type dense foam.
We got another brand much cheaper on Amazon, arrives UPS rolled in a huge bag like a carpet, swells into your room when opened. One person doesn't roll into the other (altho snoring still makes one leave), impervious to bugs, doesn't break down, etc.

The mattress with more coils probably uses a lighter duty spring in order to fit more in. So they may very well sag sooner.

Between the pushy salesperson, reports of sagging after a few years, and saving only $10, I'd stick with the original order if I were in your place.

my husband and I had the coil pocket spring mattress. We had it for over 15 years. we bought it at Montgomery wards and paid 1500 for just the mattress. Now we have the temperpedic mattress and love it. The other mattress we had is now being used by out son and his wife. It Still going strong.
If its sounds to good it isn't quality stuff.
k... k... mattress are used in hotels and are usually hard.
they do sag in the middle after awhile.
hope this helps your decision go the first one.

That's exactly what it turned out to be! I got hold of a nice salesperson at a major mattress chain store. I mentioned that second name, and he said they didn't carry it. I asked if there was something wrong with it, and that's exactly what he said -- the springs are just ordinary metal coils, but most other brands have heavy-duty, specially treated coils. He told me something more about the sagging in that brand, but I don't want to say too much here. Let's just say, I think I had a close call.

This did tell me that perhaps I'm still not 100% satisfied with the cushiness of the mattress I've ordered, so I'll have a quick look at that place where the helpful salesman was before I make my final decision.

If it's cushiness of the K...K... mattress that you liked, but like the quality of the mattress you have on order, maybe a topper would be the answer? I have no idea how it would compare price or durability wise. I know that you can buy memory foam, down, poly batting toppers.
