    I guess it depends on who you talk to whether it sucks or not , for Rob it sucks but for people who could never afford to experience a Reo type vape i suppose it's a very good thing .

    It looks like an actual reo and the description was once on robs site. Fishy

    It's gonna be a great thing for Rob too.
    He's just bummed they knocked him off right now.

    Bottom fed vaping is about to go mainstream and REO is about to blow up. (figuratively,.. Lol gotta say that around here) :D

    These clones are about to make REO a household name, and create a new generation of squonkers looking for authentic REOs.

    You know, your point is very well reasoned. I only own (and will only buy) authentic devices, including four REOs. But, before I went exclusively OG with my gear, I owned the following clones and later purchased their authentic counterparts:

    Hobo
    SMPL
    Lancia
    Mephisto V2
    Hana DNA30
    Squape R
    Aqua V2

    I made a choice to only roll with authentic kit about six months ago, for reasons I won't bore anyone with. Will everyone end up purchasing authentics after owning the clone versions? Of course not, but those people would have never purchased the authentic anyway. Will some people buy the authentic after owning the clone? Definitely.

    I really don't see that happening , Reo and Provari had their time in the sun , people getting into vaping these days are overwhelmingly going with high wattage temp controlled devices and sub ohm tanks.



    There is this cloned REO on facebook and it's been there for at least a day , only two people commented about it out of probably thousands of visitors.

    Actually, the $29 squonker trend has blown up already and dozens of Vapers here have ordered them. ( not a REO clone, but Chinese bottom fed mech).

    It's a far cry from a REO, but some are already eyeing REOs after trying out the Chinese squonker.

    Bottom fed mods are the hot topic right now.
    People are hesitant to drop over a hundred dollars to try out the latest trend.
    $29? Now that's different.
    If the experience is good, some will go for a better device.
    This is where Rob shines.
    Better built, better materials, better service, better warranty, better device.

    It's a no brainer, and if he has any sense of business he will come out of this the real winner.

    The provari still caters to the needs of 90% of the vapers. The number of bottom fed attys has increased by about 500% in the last few months. I have to respectfully disagree with your opinion.

    I messed up quoting your post but provari and reo have a little more time in the sun left.

    Sticking with Rob, had been the most dependable mods I have owned and it cured my itch to continuously buy mods.

    I agree with inswva. People who buy clones:

    1. Never would've bought the authentic anyway, or
    2. Want to test the waters first. They want to see if they like it, if they can build it successfully, etc. I have bought several clones and then went on to buy the authentic. If I like it, I feel I owe the modder for the design.

    Well I'm definitely ordering one. I can't afford a Reo and I always wanted to try one. I'm aware that the quality may not (almost certainly) won't be there, but for $30 I have to try it!

    When the clone a REO and add a VW chip, I'll be in.... Can't and wont spend more than $50 on a battery holder, for my atomizers. See the reason I vape is to SAVE money. That mean NOT buying the Mercedes when the Dodge will do the job just as well.

    It's so basic a design , i think the clone will be excellent and a lot will save a ton of money .

    I wouldn't consider the REO a Mercedes by any stretch... more like a Toyota Camry.
    I'd say the clone is definitely inline with a Dodge. You did get that part right ;)

    Funny I almost put Toyota, but I figured I get push back.. Dodge I figured I could get away with do to the history.. Not so true anymore. My next car will be a Doge if not another JEEP. Didn't expect it for the Merc comment.

    Eh, I think it's known I'm not a REO fan but I do have to give them some credit. Nothing fancy but it is a solid dependable device for the most part. Much like my wife's Camry.
    Mercedes class I'd think Sunbox and some of the other high end squonkboxes.

    FYI
    Mercedes and BMW have horrible reliability issues over the last 8-10 years.
    They are not the solid, well built
    Machines that made them famous any longer. (Blu tech? Really MB? It's 2015. Google it for a German built facepalm)

    A dodge pickup truck will outlast everything in the Mercedes stable, with maintenance costing a mere fraction.
