I wonder if it has the 6000 thumb like mine does.  Looking at it, it definitely looks like it.

Vaughn emailed me and will share the details 

here's more of the glove

Have you tried it on ice? And Gel Palm is practice or game?

I think the gel palm is the basic game ready palm.  IIRC Vaughn gloves usually have a "GEL TEC" logo in the palm.  Although I think it just means it is heat moldable.

Only worn it once and didn't like it. Too early to give a real opinion

News to me as well.  I thought all Vaughn Pro gear was mad in either the US shop or the Canada shop and the Senior gear and below were off shore.

I believe if its not "carbon", its made offshore.

I believe this is this case.

Their previous SR level stuff is now being labeled 'Pro'.

I was told once that the only carbon in the Vaughn "carbon" is the carbon pigment in the ink printed on the plastics. I wish a retailer would have a display of what is really inside of the "carbon" gear.

Funny you mention that, there are holes in my Howard unit. I was sliding the padding around looking for the carbon. I couldn't find black sheets of it. It's my understanding that it's sandwiched between foam and cannot be seen.

I would love a pic like this!

Ask and you shall receive... Vaughn just sent me these. Clearly a fair amount of carbon fiber and NOT just paint in the SLR

There was a big stink about this on GGSU, with them lighting it on fire as well. I am not sure what the end outcome was but it was an interesting thing to see.

As in people questioning the amount of the carbon used?

People questioning if it was actually carbon. They went as far as heating it up to show it didn't "melt" like carbon.

Whoa, keep us posted if there ever any resolution this!

On a side note, my industry uses a lot of "carbon filled" plastic materials that a lot people misunderstand to be carbon fiber. I could see how this gets confusing.
