    When they made shag into a pattern it was a real bitch trying to match. I once had to have a customer who was a seamstress tell me where to cut it as it all blended together after looking at it so long. Also didn't know row cutting at that time, even if it would have one.

    I learned row cutting straight pile carpet when I first discovered flooring forums. Grandpa taught me straight edging so that's what I did. It worked fine.........and the edges were straight. We just trimmed any excess material between the rows of pile with scissors where needed

    Well slow yur ass down and that won't happen:D
    I recall taking up 30 year old carpets that still looked great............ that is why they stopped making it. Same with vinyl floors like Solarian that lasted too long.. Those aren't made either.

    Me too. Take a. Look at the floor on my Cork thread. Does the kitchen floor ring any bells?

    The demise of S-200 ruined my interest in vinyls. The IVC type products and solid vinyl construction of todays vinyls lower my interest further. Not much I like about them.

    I remember one cheaper shag was a Mohawk product that was called Aristomere. We installed it commercially in bars and stores. Nylon and indistructable. At the terrible price of $6.95 a sq. yd. Everybody like red, or blue and green. The store I worked for I thought the owner was going to have a heart attack when he was told they discontinued it.
