Gand Vapor logo is going too far
These Grand Vapor clones need to have their labels removed, as they are very misleading and directly hurt the original name brand. The addition of these logos has turned these products from clones to counterfeits.

@dudebro, actually if you compare them side by side with an actual Private V2 there are several things that set this apart from being a counterfeit to a clone. On major indicator is the these do not have that. The bolt pattern at the top cop is different too.
I have a picture on my home PC where a user has both and I will post it later, but here is the standard V2.



Not to mention Fast Tech does not make them, so you would want to take that up with the manufacturer. Good luck with that as there appears to be several.

@deadinside the new copper/brass/stainless model looks JUST like that one. This aluminum one is similar, clearly inspired by it, but the machining design is completely its own.

I know that's why the alum model was more of a clone than a counterfeit model.

I made this post before FT killed the GrandVapor clone game with being the first on the block to post the tri-tone model. It looks exactly like the real thing. The only exception is that the GV V2 uses 2 colors of brass and the FT V2 uses copper and brass. Either way, it's smaller in size, like the real thing and more of a solid design.

Oh and here is a comparison photo for you all. This is the aluminum one beside the real GV v2. This was not my picture, but seen on the internet from someone else.

The OP is correct, clones aren't so bad but the logo is counterfeiting.
