I cannot expect to have a EU/US made mod for 12 bucks, but the problem is that even at 4x that money you simply cannot have a nicely made non-chinese mod.

I don't blame the custom mod makers, they sell mods at ridiculous prices because they sell. period. As long as there is a demand prices won't go down.

I only have an original mod why? because it had a fair price at the time,
65 Euros for a custom box mod (mech like performance) with built in 1900 Li-po + 40 Amps limit + Fatdaddy 510 + usb + voltage screen.
Using "regulation" as poorly disguised prohibition is criminal. Vaping is not smoking, reduces harm and saves lives.

Leopold let me tell you a story. BMW sued the chinese for the X5 and lost. They were mostly doing that because they were afraid the prospective chinese market for BMWs would dissipate. What they found out was that their cars still sold like hotcakes there and globally and then let it go. You know why that is? Because a BMW offers more value, workmanship and finesse than the Chinese could ever clone and does not come at 1000% markup.

The situation with your and most high end mod makers' creations is far from the above. The chinese appear to be able to easily clone and make near 1:1 copies of your and the other mod makers' devices. This essentially reveals the business model of high end mod making. It entails selling rarity, exclusivity and "workmanship" which are promises of appreciation in value at a 1000% markup. Unsuprisingly people wised up to this ridiculousness and spoke with their wallets.

It would be wise to heed their words...

Ah ah ah, is he serious? Fasttech don't have any originals mech mods? Holy crap, i've been spoiled...
I know that as a small manufacturer you can't beat the chinese prices, but 250€ for a tube of metal (saw on your site) are you fuckin' serious? You'll tell me that's a premium mod, hand made by qualified manufacters...and what?
At the end, it fires up a mod like another one no? So, i'm happy that your mod have been cloned,the consumer's walet is more important nowadays !
So, i've ordered one as i know that your are totally pissed of with it and that's makes me smile :)

When it comes down to it you'll always have some fuckwit that's willing to pay 10x more for something just for some kind of perceived cultural cache. Personally when someone says that their particular metal tube is an "original" and that they paid $100+ for it, I don't view them in a positive light. It's more of a "Wow, you're a moron.".

Mod makers, get a fucking clue. Stop producing your shit and become Mod Designers. The Chinese can and will produce the exact same thing at a much cheaper price. Design the mod and contract with a Chinese factory to produce it, with you getting a cut of the sales. You'll make your money (though they will screw you left and right), and the consumer will get the price they want.

BORDEL DE MERDE!!!! Vive la France!
Sucks to get your stuff copied but that's how the world works. If people like the clone enough they just may be tempted to get the real thing.
Live, love and be happy.

A device called "Le Petit Gros".....nah. The translator says "The Big Breakfast"...I don't want something called that unless I'm at the diner.
