    I think there was a thread not too long ago on this but it seems there were a number of messages erased.
    A glovemaker from Pakistan has sent me various pictures of his gloves and even an FIE certificate. From the pictures the gloves look fairly good and the certificate seems legit. The prices are good too. Is there anybody here that has had a similar experience or even bought gloves from glovemakers in that part of the world.

    Vendors get emails like that all the time.

    Was it Noor Playthings or Worldsun Indistries?

    I got the emails and everything was labeled as 800N but when asked for the FIE Certificate or the CRIT report I got no responses
