This Gold Seal Gaff is the exact same thong design & Lycra material as our Classic Gaff. The reason for this overlap is because we've had dreadful supply issues with the Classic Gaff, so, we've added the Gold Seal to our offerings! The one thing we'll note is that the Gold Seal Gaff is manufactured in China, whereas the Classic Gaff is manufactured in BC. And, that the Gold Seal Gaff features a slightly silkier & softer feeling Lycra than the Classic Gaff. This gaff is great for folks seeking a thong-style underwear for tucking!
