    Question What's up with the new RN memory foam?

    I got a brand new RXT today and here's a comparison pic of the foam in it and the foam in an older RN I have.

    The new foam is a lot more porous and just not as nice feeling. It's practically smushed flat in places. The old foam is thicker and more solid and seems like a much better quality.

    Old foam is on the left, new is on the right

    I never had an old style Radian, but I do like the foam in our classic MA better than the RXT.

    I have an older style SK Radian 80SL that is about 2 years old. The foam in my seat looks like the old foam you show in your pictures, so it isn't just yours. Have you called customer service? I would be curious as to what they have to say.

    my new foam is like that too, rxt. I no longer have the older one, but yeah I noticed a difference right away and thought they went cheaper with it on the newer ones.

    Not yet but I plan to. I told myself I have to get my closet cleaned out before I can do anything else.

    Which of course is why I'm here....

    I found some old PC games ex left and I was looking up on eBay if they are worth anything and of course I can't be on the computer without refreshing CSO.....

    Re: What's up with the new RN memory foam?

    If the only deciding factor between an R100 and an R120 was the memory foam, which would you go for? After seeing the foam do you feel it does much?

    I'd probably still get the 120. It doesn't do a ton, but it does something.
