    Thanks!

    Wait...It LOOKS like carbon fiber, but isn't it just a plastic case?

    It feels different than the old one: more solid. It looks like CF. I just doubted it because of the price.
    Frankly, I don't care because it looks and does what I want. If it breaks I can buy 10-15 replacements for the price I've seen for "Real CF" cases.

    Ruberized case

    I purchased a rubberized cover for my droid. It's two piece and black,
    and feels and looks great.

    But if your one who slides it into their pant pocket the friction from
    the rubberized case will make it hard to do.

    There is not a picture with the add - but it's not hard to imagine what
    a two - piece - rubberized - droid case looks like.

    There is a sku# SHC00MTA855BK. The case really feels great.

    Based on price? It states CF - no feedback scores saying it's not. Did you receive one? Curious as to how you knew that. Mike

    I work with real carbon fiber on my race car... its real easy to tell that thats a CF Pattern printed on plastic...


    EDIT: just now looked at the price... which is even more of a DEAD give a way... the resin itself would cost more than that... plus the CF cloth... molds.. etc... no way thats real... AND the the weave is too silver... real CF is more black/dark gray... the only way to obtain that pattern for real is with those colors is to use carbon/kevlar.. and you dont even want to know the price of carbon/kevlar cloth

    That's why I mentioned price... ;)

    My Cannondale mountain bike has a custom CF swingarm - the $2,300.00 cost (I didn't pay, it was comped by a factory rep) is twice that of the stock aluminum swingarm. So that's why I knew the stuff is BIG $$$! ;)

    Shouldve had them comp a front fork while he was at it...

    Your swingarm dry CF? or Wet?

    (you tested my CF knowledge.. now im testing yours..:wink:)
