    Default The Astro by Kato CLONE! $24 on FT

    Saw this first thing this morning.....had to jump on it as I always have loved the look of the Astro. For $24 it's not a bad gamble. What do you guys think?

    as long as people can feel better about themselves calling it a clone instead of a fake the chinese will keep making money.

    gotsmok could have made a very nice looking "clone" without having to go the extra step and rip off the logo and name.

    Not to turn this into a clone wars thread, but most all the major original mod makers have ZERO problem selling their devices, heck most of um have waiting lists.

    Gotsmok didn't make anything....lol They are just a company that advertises deals. Some random Chinese company is making these. And you're right.....clone isn't the right word. Replica is..........

    I don't have my real mixed Astro with me to compare, but I really doubt those pics are from a clone........it looks too good. For 24 bucks, I just ordered one. I'm not a fan of blatant fakes, but this is my chance to compare a fake to the real thing. I honestly don't expect too much, and I'll report back in a couple of weeks.
