On a side note...
When the OEM/Authentic was posted, the knurling of the brass hybrid adjuster and red oring were sore spots.

I just 100% verified Aqua V2s did come with identical spare packages as the ones included with this, including identical knurling.

So now we know our 1:1s have 1:1 adjustment screw knurling too. HUZZAH

Was it from the first run of 1,000 aka "shark" version? I suspected that they might have changed it when they did the second run of 1,000 aka "dolphin" run.

How did you verify it?

Was on the Dolphin.

Unboxed a Dolphin marked authentic out of curiousity. No red Orings, and identical hybrid pin.

I know it doesnt mean much but thought Id put the info out there since a lot of people brought up those two things.

It does make you think though, they got the knurling right from the batch that is pretty much just now shipping to people right?
Didnt the Dolphin run literally just get released? Im not sure about that, but if thats the case thats one hell of a coincidence to get correct on this considering theres no reference photos.

Hell of a coincidence. No wonder FooToon's crapping his britches.

I guess that puts paid to the "it's a clone" argument. Too bad you didn't take any pics.

Actually just found a new youtube vid of serial #1 of the Dolphin, looks to show the same pin and rings in the kit too.

15:15 to see the pin, well before that he lays out everything included (rings etc)

Let me be clear, I dont give two shts whether the story is true or not. I bought it for its obvious quality difference, but anyone who bought one and says they arent at least CURIOUS is a liar.

Well, if it has a shark on the atty, and dolphin run orings and hybrid adjustment screw, then it isn't an "authentic" Aqua V2. It does make a very, very, strong case for it being OEM though.
