    I'm inquiring about the quality of 3fvapes clones.
    I want the gold 24mm petri clone because it's brass and gold but can I trust the plating? Can I trust this place at all.
    I noticed they painted the 510 on the black one.

    I'm asking here because the VU banner is on the site. I've never had a clone before so I don't know what to expect.

    I can't vouch for the Petri, but I have a few Clones from them. Basically some are very good, some OK and I've only gotten a couple I really didn't like at all. Like all Clones it's hit and miss.

    I got one in SS. I'd be pissed if I had to wait a month on a piece of crap. Lol.

    Can you measure it when you get it? The Authentic Petri 24mm is not out yet and I'd love to know if this really is 24mm or if it is a mistake in the marketing. The 22 is 2ml and this says 3ml so it should be good. I guess it wouldn't be the first time a clone beat the original to market either.

    I sure will. No calipers but I have a tape measure with centimeters.
    @r055co
    Was it the quality that you didn't like on some or the design?
    Even though they claim 1:1 there are still differences between the clones are original.
    I'm really just getting it to get some hands on experience with the design to see if I like it. I plan on getting an original.

    The quality including differences in design, mostly though the quality. Clones that I'm happy with are made by SXK and SJMY, they really can't be called Clones but fakes since they are pretty much a near perfect copy. I've got the Mod Clones like the Anubis, Rig V2 Mod and RDA's like the Hellboy and Succubus RDA's, pretty lame and very low quality. But then other RDA's like the X1 which are pretty close to the authentic (which I do own) but just not as well made, close but not as good. I also have the Velocity Clone and then bought 2 Authentic Velocity's, where as the Clones are decent but the Authentic's are in a class all their own.

    Anyway like I mentioned, Clones are hit and miss. Any device that is under $80-$100 I say get the authentic, anything over that try the Clone and if you enjoy it get the authentic. I see people get for example a clone for $15 where as the Authentic is around $20, to me that's ridiculous, but to each their own ya know.

    Agreed. I really don't like the practice of cloning but I just got another job today so I couldn't afford an original. I've also never used a postless deck and I don't know if I'll like it.
    If the SXK 24mm was out, I'd have gotten one. No one said clones have to be low quality.

    Clones for trying out high end devices before spending the money on the Authentic works for me. Also for example the O Addy Authentic is around $180-$200, that's ludicrous. I'll buy a quality Clone, a SS rda isn't worth anywhere near that.

    Yeah, I'd skip the "gold" plating on the $13 knockoff

    I don't think it has JFC. A huge win imo.
