You know, last thing I want is to spend thousands on seats, then a couple years later, the cushion has lost all it's support and when you sit on it, you literally "sink". You know what I mean.
I'll share my thoughts...I have 5 palliser hiland with 3000 grade leather if I recall correctly. Full power recline, about 6 years old.
Comfort great. In the fully upright position I wish the head could have a slight tilt backwards. In the upright I feel like my head is tilted every so slightly forward.
Cushion longevity- so so. I've had one repaired and am about to have a second done. No one in my household is over 200lbs.
Back then they offered lifetime warranty so Im covered for everything except the actual cushion.
I have found that due to the spacing of the 'S' spring supports and the sharp wood frame, the covering fabric(underside) tears right at the edge of the wood frame, causing the cushion to push down and eventually rip, causing a sag.
My in-laws bought a set recently(non theater) and it seems they have improved this. So I'd hope they improved it all around.
And do what big said...rotate em.
