I wouldn't be surprised by that. My economy boom only uses T700 UD carbon (upper-end standard modulus carbon) that is really easy to use and glass. The economy plus replaces the glass with woven carbon. This makes the boom lighter and stiffer.
Brian, did the fuse that you compared have a Serial # tag? All the serial # fuses has 30% more fiber in the boom by weight than the non-serial # fuse. Just curious for my own benefit.
