RE: Similar Carbon Fiber Composite Disc Product

Thanks for the report, in the end all that matters are results .

I'm no expert in carbon either, but I'd like to point out that the to me, the Chinese offerings and the BRD product look nothing alike .

It's hard to judge from the available images , but the BRD pads look like layered carbon, while the other products look like they were cut from a pultruded carbon rod, and then covered on one side with a layer of carbon fiber .
That would basically be a graphite puck made to look fancy .

Now for audio gear, that might work as well or even better than a proper carbon fiber disk, it just isn't one .

As for resin, obviously it needs to be used with carbon fiber; the quality and quantity of the resin can vary a lot with carbon fiber products though .
Not to mention the quality of the carbon fiber itsself, weave patterns and fiber orientation .

Sorry for the nitpicking ;) .
