Don't take it personally or anything, It's just my opinion and others seem to think so too.
Well if you really must know. Here's a couple reasons.

You like VIS? why? Just because everyone else has one? I like oe-tuning because of CF patterns. "What you would see is an infinite straight line at any given angle". If that doesn't make oe-tuning stand out from the rest...check out their 6k spoon fiber. DOUBLE the amount of carbon fiber on a hood.

OE Tuning's carbon fiber is really good. So is vis's. The weave on both of them is really good also. I'm just biased towards OE Tuning even though I used to work for vis.

double carbon fiber doesn't nessessarily make it better. OE Tuning's hoods are very nice though and the weave is nice and tight. Not loose and weavey like say JT's hoods.

yeah, akord02 is right. They use thinner fibers and they are more tightly packed together. SO there's twice as much pattern as the 3k. Also the 6k is twice as strong as the 3k, not to mention lighter too.

From personal experience, OE' tuning CF is better than the ViS CF.
