I have a VIS hood and haven’t had any issues. They are both great brands. Just make sure you get hood pins or latches as the latch hook has been known to rip out. I recommend Aerocatch latches. They are sleek and you can buy ones you can lock. I am running a VIS Hood with the latches if you look in the last 10 pages or so pages of my Member thread.

mAd mOrdigan is cool... so far.
Back in the day, and I mean like over 15 years ago, VIS quality had been spotty as far as fitment and weave etc. they however better than a lot of other brands at the time and a huge supplier. At this point they have been around a long time so it seems like they have gotten much better over the years though I donít have any RECENT first hand experience. Seibon on the other hand had always been one of the best and a bit more expensive.

Truth, like what was said earlier, the latches tend to rip out because they’re basically just resting between layers of glass, cf and resin. My buddy didn’t get good patches and his flew open somehow flexed back enough and shattered the sunroof on his integra. He still managed to get that 1/4mile done in just over 12 seconds with the hood open halfway down the track lol.

I have owned both brands. Both just as good, however they don’t fit dead on like an oem Honda hood. I do believe Seibon just recently discontinued their cf oem style hoods for the cb7. So you might have to go with VIS if you want brand new. I agree with all the fellas as far as some sort of hood pins for safety reasons and also because without hood pins, it will tend to rattle at high speeds. I’ve used old school hood pins in the past, switched them out for NRG hood locks which were pretty good. I am now using something called quick latch pins. The aero flush hood latches seem like too much of a pain to install.

They were tedious to install and I have to cut a decent size hole under the hood. But I like the locking feature for increased theft resistance.
