    If it's marked "authentic," it usually is. FT labels clones as "styled" as in "Goon styled RDA rebuildable dripping atomizer." They have been known to photoshop out logos & serial numbers from their photos, from time to time.

    FT is good about authentic vs styled, you can order it without worry, it will be authentic. I actually like how FT approaches this, they are totally upfront about it....

    I can't be 100% sure this is a 'shop, but it almost looks like that's what they've done here. I almost see a little blurry "smear" underneath the 510 connector, which could be where the serial number goes?

    So it's a real Goon 1.5 for $32? I saw somewhere that they might be factory seconds or rejects. In other words, it's a real Goon that didn't pass the quality inspection. Could that be what's going on?

    I haven't heard that, and I will say with the amount of "authentic" business FT does, I think it might be difficult to only be selling seconds or things that did not pass quality control. I have not had issues with my FT orders, authentic or clone. That's interesting though and I'd have to look into it more....

    I just discovered FT. I will likely order some tanks from them at some point.

    I have ordered dozens of vape items from FT. I'm just not sure about this Goon.

    I've wondered about that myself, but I don't know if there's anything to it or not. In any case, they do offer a satisfaction guarantee, so if you're not happy you can get your money back (minus shipping) within 45 days of delivery.

    Ok, so of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

    If FT says its authentic I'd trust them.

    The GOON 1.5 is a airy mutha so be sure you like MASSIVE airflow as it doesn't turn down very far.

    Now I have purchased and used a clone Goon 1.5. Take this with a grain of salt, I don't have the Authentic to compare the 2.

    I read review and get review and settled on a cost vs positive review formula that was completely made up and settled on a 1:1 $7 black clone.

    I looked at pics and seems to be close, as Cline's usually are. Noticed the build deck was good, not sure what material but one post slight leaned in.

    Why am I telling you this? Because that clone stopped me from buying an Authentic. It's airy, no matter how hard you try to settle it down, and I found the deck to be ok, but not $50 ok (or $32 ok).

    It may be a favorite, I won't knock it any harder, but it wasn't for me.
