Don't skimp on padding. Quality carpeting needs quality padding for maximum durability, comfort, and beauty retention.
For most carpets our 7/16" 6 lb bonded pad is ideal.  It is a Carpenter brand that uses no regrind material and protects the waranty for all plush style carpets.  We do not sell or stock 4 lb bonded pad.  No carpet manufacturer will warranty their carpet over a 4 lb pad, therefore we do not bother to stock it.
FOR PLUSH CARPETS: 6 LB BONDED
FOR BERBER CARPETS: 8 LB BONDED
Our standard pads
For our low cut pile or commercial carpets as well as our berber or loop carpets, we find the 1/4" 8 lb bonded pad gives a little more comfort than our synthetic fiber pad.  We believe that synthetic jute pad is preferable in commercial applications as well as in areas where moisture may be an issue.  Both pads do the job.

Why Padding is so important. 
When you step on a carpet there is a big difference in comfort from one pad to another.  Even under berber or commercial carpets our customers typically want a certain amount of bounce or give under foot.  The problem is that firm carpets like berbers will not wear well without a firm pad.  The warrantys are
clear that either a thin 8 lb density bonded or a firm synthetic pad is required.  You would get better wear from a berber or commercial carpet using no pad than a thick cushy pad.  It is just the opposite with your typical plush carpet.  They require a certain amount of give under foot or they will wear prematurely.
Our 7/16" bonded pad is what is needed under plush carpets to meet warranty standards but it would not be appropriate under berber or commercial carpet.
