Matt3533 Posted May 21, 2017 Share Posted May 21, 2017 So, I was going to put this in the Vaughn section since the first half of my question is Vaughn specific; however, the second part of my question is very general to all brands so I just kept it in the gear section. I was looking at the new Ventus pads in the store and online (which have been my favourite flat faced pads so far since I am a knee roll kinda guy) and I was having a hard time finding differences between the pro model and the pro carbon model. Now I understand that Vaughn has changed their branding of their Senior models to Pro, and their Pro to Pro Carbon. Other than the obvious added carbon fiber to the Pro Carbon models, what are the other differences? - such as quality, materials used, features, etc. For almost $1000 cheaper, the Pro model seems like an obvious choice for a beer leaguer (like myself) for a great pad option that just doesn't have the carbon fiber - which is why I want to know if there are any other differences. Just at first glance of how the Pro model is built based on internals, quality of build, etc., the "senior" Pro model would actually be considered a real Pro model if this were 2012. Now the second part of my question is comparing the Pro model to smaller companies out there that make Pro pads (Simmons, Boddam, McKenney, etc.). I know with the smaller companies you get the more personal interactions with the builders and typically have more customization options. I'm actually trying to figure out the difference in quality of build, and more specifically the internal materials used. To my knowledge, none of the smaller companies use carbon fiber in their pads, and most used the HD foams, as does Vaughn. So when it comes to quality and materials, are there any companies that would be considered superior to the Vaughn Ventus (Pro "senior" model). I know it's a long winded post, but any info would help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
