    the above one was my stain and stain removal test- which also included nasty chemicals like bleach as you may recall. the below was my compression test on smartstrand ( square) and anso ( shaw) rectangle when i put 2 ice cubes on each and then put each under a heavy table leg for 8 days


    You know I think the shaw people do a better job of advertising, the mohawk smartstrand I didn't expect to win but it did- I don't think they sell it's assets very well.

    mohawk smartstrans left vs shaw anso rx2 right picture by cheerpeople - Photobucket
    Here's a better pic of all the samples: Both types of carpet got equal amounts of the following stains/ chemicals: Ketchup ground in, veg. oil, tilex, lysol bathroom, bleach, permanent marker ( in pic) pilot paint pen ( in pic) red cool aid, mud ground in hmm, I think that was it. I'd scroll back to page one on this but I'm afraid it will lose what I just typed.
