New futon mattress help.

In 2000 I bought a really sweet mission style futon frame, but with a totally shoddy mattress. Time for a new one.

The current one is basically just fill stuffed into a cover. To make it bearable I’ve duct taped a featherbed cover to it and wrapped that up in another cover and put a fitted full sheet on top of it for aesthetics. It’s time for a new one and I need personal recommendations. I’ll need a full size one that will get equal use as a couch in folded position as well as flat like a bed. What’s best, foam or springs? How do the spring filled ones hold up being folded for a long period of time? Who on the intertubes will deliver for cheap/free? I heart my futon and want the new mattress to last quite a while. Thanks in advance for answering the question at hand and not suggesting I spent the money on a couch or a bed.
