    I answered both, but to be fair, I didn't know the Magneto was a clone when I bought it. Does it still count?

    I like to sub ohm hard so I gotta go big with the real deal. Also fakes are good

    If I could afford to I would buy authentic mods, but for the price of one authentic piece, I can buy 5-10 clones

    Surprisingly close results! I have to admit, while I've always gone for the real deal for anything in the past, certain reviews on YouTube of clones make it very tempting. Some seem to be 95% as good as the real deal with only slight differences such as finish or sizes. It's becoming quite difficult to find some of the real things such as Trident RDA's here in the UK because they sell so fast, so a quality clone is the next best thing I guess.

    I would prefer to support the innovators and be rewarded with fine craftsmanship over mass production (regardless of quality).

    I answered "Both", but at one point I was 100% clones. Since I made the switch to ePipes I'm mostly originals. There are some chinese made pipes that are somewhat decent, but you just can't beat the handcrafted originals. A tube mod can be easily replicated with machinery, but a handcarved wooden pipe cannot.

    In my experience the majority of so called chinese ripoffs are of the same quality and have the same performance as the origanal,and if the original manufacturer didn't price gouge so bad chinese clones wouldn't do so well.

    I totally forgot about this thread/poll and wanted to see if anyone's views have changed.

    The only thing with clones is that they may need some modification which can be a pain or just plain fun if you like to tinker.

    Stalking Fasttech and FocalEcig seem to be a daily thing now. =D
