Farm Plastic Supply - Deceptive Add

My complaint is against Farmplasticsupply.com

https://farmplasticsupply.com/4year-clear/4-year-10-mil-string-reinforced-greenhouse-plastic

Their product is advertised as clear, it is not; most, if not all, of the other competing sites mention that their non-transparent materials are not transparent, and if you want to be able to see through the sheeting; some mentioning that they are intended to allow ample sunlight for plant growth.

This is essentially the jist of my complaint as sent to Farm Plastic Supply

Dura Skrim - 10mil - String Reinforced Clear Plastic Sheeting - UV Stabilized - 24' Wide - Length (feet):: 20

is not clear and was not as wide as advertised, length was fine.

I did not expect the clear to be marine grade clear, but I did expect to be able to see thorough it so as to easily identify items through/behind the sheeting. Also, I assumed that this statement, "Our 10 mil clear plastic sheeting provides a higher level of strength than other 10 mil films while maintaining 85% light transmission." would be mean that most of the light transmission reduction would be due to the reinforcing string, as it clearly states that the sheeting is clear.

Most, if not all, of the other competing sites mention that their non-transparent materials are not transparent, and if you want to be able to see through the sheeting; some mentioning that they are intended to allow ample sunlight for plant growth.

Farmplasticsupply advertises their product as clear, and conveniently omits this.

"String Reinforced 4 Year UV Resistant 10 mil Clear Greenhouse Plastic Sheeting."

and:

"When other greenhouse films are not tough enough for your environment, consider our 10 mil string reinforced clear plastic sheeting.

Our 10 mil clear plastic sheeting provides a higher level of strength than other 10 mil films while maintaining 85% light transmission. This four-layered extrusion laminate is reinforced with a heavy-duty layer of scrim placed between two outer layers of high strength virgin film, then laminated together with another layer of molten polyethylene.

The diamond pattern is spaced 3/8 apart with an additional machine direction scrim every 3 across the width for a high resistance to ripping, tearing, puncturing, or shredding.

This 10 mil clear plastic sheeting contains ."

Also, the "Clear" Dura Skrim - 10mil - String Reinforced Clear Plastic Sheeting was advertised as 24' wide.

Most if not all of the other sites mention that the widths may be 6" or 3" shorter. Again, Farmplasticsupply conveniently omitted this.

I can provide links of competing sites which do mention this, not prescreened, just ones that I still have links to, most that mention their products are not clear or completely transparent if they are not.

Thank You
