Looking at innerspring mattress

Hi jasonsmith,

If you can list the specs I’d certainly be happy to make a few comments about them or help you identify any weak links.

The only way to make meaningful comparisons between the quality of innersprings outside of how they “feel” (different innersprings have different properties) is based on the weight of the steel inside them and this isn’t a spec that manufacturers normally provide. I wouldn’t worry too much about coil counts because they are not really meaningful unless the type of spring, the gauge of the wire, coil diameter, the number of turns, and some of the other specs are the same in which case a higher coil count would indicate more steel (see post #10 here and this article). The innerspring in a mattress isn’t normally the weak link of a mattress.
