Napa Premium vs ULTRA Premium

I don't know why they can't just keep the same names on this stuff..

So napas cheap line of brake parts is now called Premium, and the expensive stuff is ULTRA premium.

I think this was asked before, but does anyone know what the difference between these are?
The disk brake rotors are $65 for premium and $114 for ultra premium. They have almost the same partnumber, are not cross drilled or slotted. Just more money.

Thoughts?

What about buying these from Schucks? Any Difference in quality?

Re: Napa Premium vs ULTRA Premium

Shop around online. I have trouble imagining what the huge difference in price could be about. They are both cast iron and both are machined. How could one be worth twice as much as the other? I have bought the ordinary rotors from Checker and they have lasted many years on my daily driver. Now, I would pay up for better pads, though.

Re: Napa Premium vs ULTRA Premium

Just a guess - The cheap rotors are made in China and the expensive rotors are made domestically?
