My experience with the NRS webbing floor was not good. Way too much flex. I used a solid floor made of skid guard. Small floor, just enough size to stand on. Worked great with an NRS cat frame.

Seat belt webbing is drum tight and doesn't stretch

I can recommend Jan at Stiches n Stuff. She makes excellent floors at good prices to what ever spec you want. Some times you might not want a floor and some times you might want one. Being able to take the floor off is key in my mind, on a multi day with lots of gear or on a day trip with kids you might want the floor, then you might want to run some gnarly water, or low water where you might want to fred flinstone, and want the floor off.

Sotar's web floor,10 years tight as a drum, drains quickly after being submerged by a big hole. Can cast a fly rod standing up with no other support it is so taunt.

Yep. The NRS webbing floor + their flexy lower rails = major suck. The solid floors attached to the lower rails yielded structural support and a nice floor to stand on. I've never had the chance to stand on the seatbelt webbing floor. Always thought it sounded like a good option.

I really like my Polymax floor and should learn how to post a picture.

I've got some Polymax after seeing Alex's post and have used it inside drop bags but never thought of it for flooring, at least unsupported floor. Will it hold you you - seems like it would eventually crack and break apart?
