I'm looking for feedback on these three Pallister seats from anyone who may have had opportunity to see them in person, sit in them, etc.

The Axis and Digit look like identical seats. The Epych does not have a height adjustable head rest and a slightly different look to the seat.

Do these seats all feel the same? Same amount of padding, firmness, etc?

I'm also a bit confused over the different leather grades available. Other than just simply saying there are different grades in quality, the Pallister web sight doesn't really go into any detail on the different grades.

Yes, you are correct. These are both identical seats. The Digit is the new model name that is replacing the Axis. Palliser has recently moved to a more a la carte type system where certain options like tray tables, Illuminated Cup Holders can be ordered on almost any model. Other than this, the Digit and Axis are the exact same seat.

The Epych is a completely different chair. As you have already pointed out, It does not have an adjustable headrest. It also has a more narrow footprint.

I would say the Epych is slightly more firm than the Axis/Digit.

As you go up in grades the leather generally gets softer. The higher grade leathers (3000 and up) are only available in 100% leather on the chair as there is no vinyl match available on those leathers. The lower grades are corrected (flaws in the leather are "corrected") and protected leathers and the higher grades are more natural leathers.

I hope this info helps.

Thanks Ken, that is helpful. With regards to the leather, what is the wear resistance of each grade, comparably to each grade, maintenance, and thickness? If I want a 20 year chair, which grade would I select?

I would go with the 1000 or 2000 leathers for their durability and colorfastness, especially if you have kids and/or pets. The lower grade leathers also tend to be thicker. Go with 2000 if you prefer a slightly softer leather. Let me know if you need more detailed info, please.
