I've got reservations about bringing up this topic as some are quite passionate at both ends of the opinion spectrum. However it's something I've been wondering about for the past week or so and curiosity has got the better of this cat. If this thread isn't appropriate, please feel free to have it deleted. Please don't bite my head off.
Why hasn't the evil Chinese clone empire attempted to clone the REO? I don't think they should and hope they don't, but I can't understand why so many tube mods and atomizers get cloned within weeks of being released yet our beloved REOs have been overlooked (in a good way). I, like everyone else who frequents the REO sub-forum, believe that the REO is superior to everything else I've used. Its form and function rise above all other devices.
I think if a clone was attempted, it'd surely be a sub-par, flawed device just like the vast majority of other clones on the market.
