RE: Hadaly RDA...
Hi FB - I have a lot of sympathy with your views on this but the companies involved with the authentic version are actually catering to the clone market - if they would just make them a little cheaper - and make more of them the clone market would not thrive as well as it does. All my RDA's are clones - good quality ones even down to the grub screws - which let the cheaper clones down. I would love to buy authentic but they are so damned expensive. In saying that I would never buy a cloned mod where electrics are involved. Only sayin'[Image: smile.gif].

Edit note - gently got in before me while I typed - I must type faster[Image: training1.gif]

If there wasn't a genuine need to protect proprietary inventors from scoundrels, George Washington wouldn't have signed the bill into law during his presidency...... some 250+ years ago! Tongue

RE: Hadaly RDA...
I'm a big fan of authentics. That said all my billets are clones and my mikune panel DNA60 is as expensive as a standard authentic if not more. You will pay for DNA clones as the chip is still the same chip. Both SXK and SMJY make incredible clones of high end attys. I have used both clones and authentics of the hadaly, the nipple, the DDP, the narda and the doggy (the clone doggy beats the authentic). That saisd at the moment all my attys are authentic. Only clones in the house are the billet boxes. I might pick up a SXK DNA 75 SVA squonk clone. It is excellent! Not cheap - 150 CAN.
