Poly-fiber vs Stewart ?

A friend will be covering his Porterfield soon.

He has narrowed the fabric choices to Poly-fiber or Stewart Systems.

The primary concern is LONG TERM CONDITION.

Poly appears to have the edge here.

Since Stewart is a "Blue River" descendant it has not been around as long as Poly.

Ease of application that folks talk about is not the biggie here.

"10 years from now?"
