Oops, I think I missed that post. Anyways, the part about the info is weird. Usually manufactureres brag about the materials they use and give technical info (that they assume we don't undrstand) to impress you. It is weird that they don't want to tell you anyhting about it. Either they are holding to a super secret, or they are cheaping out on the materials and stuff or what could be worst, they haven't analyzed them yet.
