65, Do you still find it comfortable after 2 hours? Or do you find yourself re positioning yourself often?

I'm not really sure Paul - I normally don't just sit on a sofa. I lie back, etc. I could pay more attention next time.
I've also never had a coil-spring piece, so I don't really have anything to compare it to.

Also I am not sure if this makes a difference - I'm on the lighter side. Not quite 12 stone.

The zig zag springs seem ok to me - but not approaching the quality of coils  - however you see a lot of failure to zig zags  where the end of the spring joins to the clip.

Yeah. Cheaper frames, cheaper clips. All doomed to fail. Many factories opt for clips that cost a penny apiece instead of a nickel apiece. They save about a dollar a couch.

Well I've invested in a klinch-it tool, and clips. And from what you guys are saying..

I'll go with the coil springs. When I finish my loveseat I'll be sure to have a good rest and test out the comfort.

Appreciate the input.

"Downgrading a seat to ziggers is like taking a Cadillac (older one) and putting a VW engine it it."

Back when I was a teenager working at my first job, there was a guy who worked that that who had a Porsche that he put a VW engine in it. He got it with a blown engine and wrecked body. He fixed the body and put in the VW engine.

I can still see and hear that Porsche accelerating going down the alley behind the building. That was the weirdest thing.
