Does it worth that histeria?
I'm serious, should I buy 2-3 more?

It's all so Darwinian!

"Style" > "1:1" > "OEM" > "Authentic"

Never try to hold a good clone down.

Can we have it for less now?

KF4 Leaking? For a more secure seal, replace the o-ring #16 with one that is 1.5mm cross section. SKU 1536606 or SKU 1536607

I honestly didn't think people were this fussy about labels. This is obviously exactly the same device as the authentic/OEM listing. It has been re-listed under a different SKU as a technicality to get around the Footoon factory shenanigans (I think his price gouging is a disgrace to be honest). So now we have people saying they should have bought it earlier or that they told you so etc. What does it matter how this device is labeled? It's made in the same factory with the same metal (316ss had been confirmed by Sufie) so it's the same damn thing! I really don't think they would bother with 316ss on a clone. Buy it, enjoy it, our don't. Stop the drama. Take the badge off a Ferrari and it's still a Ferrari. I am getting myself a de-badged Ferrari. 😉

People keep saying that they don't mind paying this price for an atty. (Because it's really an original, nudge, wink.) Perhaps there will be a parting of the ways, on up the road. A FastTech Prime, perhaps? Pay for the key to the V.I.P. listings... Gotta respect elitists, they will be crawing out from under rocks after a nuclear winter.

No- need to buy at least 6 more.

Actually there are quite a few clones available in 316ss like the veritas, flip v3, zna by robotech, and the Russian. I can't say if any of those including this Honda that originally had an authentic Ferrari badge slapped on it is really 316ss since the only way to tell would take an acid test to prove. It's amazing how quickly people forget all the lies these clone manufacturers have told us in the past. The smpl clones was once a solid tube which isn't the case. The original taifun clone was all ss but ended up being largely chrome plated brass. The first listed copper steam punk was supposed to be all copper but ended up being plated brass. The list goes on and on. It still hasn't even been proven footoon gets anything made in China. I still think the allure for this from all those blindly believing it's the same as authentic is the felling of getting over on these "over priced" authentic manufacturers. This was being sold on eBay before it was listed here in the same exact tin that ft claimed to have added the extra printing on just for them. The company making them is limewell and I have posted pics in other threads. This horse has long been dead and those that believe it's real continue to do so. I'm perfectly happy knowing I spent a little more for this version knockoff for the potentially better materials and build quality.

Well, actually, if you read the Q and A's on Footoons FB page since 'the troubles' he actually admits that only the third batch of Aquas are actually being maufactured in his factory, the original two batches were outsourced elswhere, but he decines to say exactly where. Don't want to open up the can again but the more he says the more full of shit he looks as he originally said they were all manufactured by him.
