Fred Gauss: seriously tho you should check out ebay for clones
Jameson Radosta: honestly if i would have never saw this video and i bought the clone and
was impressed with it, i would buy the real deal but be disappointed with
it because if the real one performs the exact same as the clone, i would
feel like i just wasted a whole bunch of money that i didnt need to. thats
how i would feel.
Charley Edwards: Ok Brother... got a few things...1st, all I gotsta say is DAMN your beard
grows fast! 2nd, I'm not sure how long you've been off the cigs here but I
can totally hear the difference in your breathing while you are talking
just from last year to this in your vids... What you do for the Vape
community is amazing! I love it and have learned much. Because of my new
found hobby (thanks to you) I've been off smokes for over six months! The
really cool think is last year on my birthday (56) I couldn't eve blow out
my candles.. This year on my birthday, and more candles (57) and I blew
every one of those bastards with no effort... Thanks! Keep this crap up
brother... Oh and thank you for the Knowledge! Anything I can do, Just
ask!!! Peace Out!
Ron Alexander: Although late to the program, id like to add my comment to the list. I've
watched this and the first (on the original) as I have on just about all
your videos. I'm a newbie to the Vaping world, because I've just quit
smoking after 30 years. with everything I buy, I try to research any and
all brands and make my decision on the best product I can by, not
necessarily the cheapest. that being said, I would love, LOVE to by
originals on everything I purchase, Vaping wise, just because I'm a firm
believer in giving the money to the one that dose the research and
development on a product and see's it through to production and then out to
the public, BUT the prices are sooo outrageous for originals and with times
being what they are, me personally am not able to purchase originals, I
will however say that I do the same if not more research on clone companies
to find the best one available. I have not bought The Trident, but I'm
basing this on my only dripper and that is "The Atomic clone" which simply
enjoy. I'm in the process of researching my first Variable MOD, which is
looking to be a ZNA from AMOD, id love to by a Vaporshark rDNA 30, prices
are comparable do to the new release of the new DNA 40's, time will tell.
Thanks man, congrats on the new website, it's bookmarked and look forward
to more reviews and giveaway's. l8ter on
Sentimental Void: what happened to this version of rip? This was the notch that was good, and
real. His new videos are so superficial and fake.
Mark Kalvin: The short answer is "no."
The clone versus original controversy is not unique to this device. The
dilemma stems from vaping devices being a hot product that fetches a high
price but one that can't be protected from copying by the difficulty of
making it (as would be, say, a television) or the value of the materials
that go into it.
Basically, a mod is a battery-case in the form of a metal tube with a
coaxial connector and an rda is a few pieces of metal machined from steel.
Given this, unless the manufacture of the clone is wildly inferior or even
dangerous, paying the price for the original (in this case, five times the
price of the clone) makes zero economic sense because in a good clone, you
get the same look and function as the original. Basically, electricity
doesn't know the difference and neither will you.
If manufacturers asked for reasonable prices, there would be less incentive
to clone but who knows if this is economically feasible for them?
Phant Azum: If I liked the clone I would buy the real thing, if I could afford to burn
150 dollars on a piece of metal.
scottbogfoot: No sir, I just ordered a trident clone v2 I believe. I know it's old crap
now compared to the newest generation of rdas but i got a hardware
addiction and want it just to have one in my collection. If I am impressed
by the performance of it or any clone I would always accredited it to the
original designer and manufacturer for that. Id be more inclined to get the
real rda/mod if the clone sucked especially if I heard that the original is
good. Im more impressed when inexpensive clones are better than $100+ rdas.
Jimbo Jones: All the rda clones i own have some negatives which stop me from purchasing
the real deal. The plumeveil is the best clone i have but i rarely use it
as the gold plating is pealing off and i hate the leaking from the side
airflow holes. If aethertech change the positioning to reduce the leaking i
would seriously consider buying the authentic
Kenneth Murphy: I have the Trident clone, paid $22 for it about two months ago. It fits my
iTaste MVP2 and the damn thing works great! Would I buy the real one for
$110? If I could afford it, yea...why not? However, I can't which is why I
have the clone.
Oscar The Grouch: I think that as long as the machining is in good quality and the style is
there for all my vv/vw or mechanical mods I honestly personally would go
for the cheaper priced one if the quality ways good and like you said +RiP
Trippers it performed like the real thing but only if I was on a budget. So
in my opinion I would buy the clone over the real thing. But I gotta say I
still do love all the original manufacturers who work hard to bring up a
name and a perfectly crafted piece of art work to vape on that performs
like a beast so that being said heck yeah I'll help them by buying thir
product. Price is there with a clone but originality it and should only be.
Smoking is dead and vaping is the future and the future is now.
GoldSlidePark: Do an atomic RDA vs a really good atomic clone please?
Richard WEBER: Salut, moi ce qui m'intéresse c'est ton chapeau ^^ Peux-tu me dire quel est
le modèle ?
Sinon bravo pour tes review !
Tyler Jones: I feel the clone was way better..
dustin ledford: just bought a trident today. it was my first rda and im loving it, the only
thing is that I got it for 25$ from a local vape shop, it has no serial
number, but has the Grand Vapor logo on the barrel. not quite sure if its
authentic or a clone. I going with clone based on the price. but it does
sit perfect on my nemesis clone I bought with it.
MalakaiBoarder16: hey! im new to the vape scene but desperately looking to get a sweet set up
and i was wondering if the trident clone fits your vtr !?
Ben Garland: I have a clone anyone else have a lot of trouble changing the air flow on
tigerfanman: its funny how people act like its so hard to make clones of this.. its just
simple metal work.. as if impossible to replicate the real ones
Brett Mathe: The reason why clones are so inexpensive is because you aren't paying for
the R&D. The problem with buying clones is that you aren't supporting the
R&D that goes into producing these mods. The cost of the materials is far
less than the cost of the research and development that goes into it. If
you buy clones you are stifling the innovation of these companies that are
making these great products. That being said I do believe that the
original manufacturers should reduce the price of their products to make it
a more reasonable purchase for a majority of us.
Phu Kew II: What am I missing? What's the purpose of producing all that vapor? It's
certainly not to be inhaled, your lungs don't have the capacity. Sucking
vapor like I see on these videos I would think would just make one dizzy.
More and more these videos are nothing no more than big pickle comparisons.
If you want clouds of vapor why not get fog machine.
Troy Finley: Would not buy the real thing if the clone is satisfying ...there is no
huhhman: I have a V1, V2 and a V2 clone and you can absolutely not tell the
difference in the vape. I use the original more though just because.
necrom21221: Cant afford the real thing. Always buy clones cause it works just about
the same or even better.
Xtal0: I would buy the real thing after I got a clone, but I'm kinda OCD about
having the best thing possible when it comes to things I am passionate
about. I honestly would buy the real thing even if it was worse than a
clone, simply because there is a certain warm fuzzy feeling over having a
high end product that goes beyond the way something performs. That said, I
just bought an Atomic on Ebay for $85.00, made clear in the listing that it
is authentic, and after having it for a few days, I have been searching
desperately for some way to confirm if it is indeed real, as there are no
serial numbers or things like that on the Atomic. So far I've seen nothing
that tells me it is a clone, and it matches everything when I study
photos/video of the real thing, but there is still that voice telling me to
buy another one from a legit vendor, and then compare. So yea, I'm a bit
OCD about name brand crap.
David Wickliffe: Rip, about the copper pin protruding or not... you can adjust it.... the
copper pin is a screw that can be adjusted so help it fit more devices
[such as the k series mech mods that dont have a floating(spring loaded)
Wassssabi: I think that purchasing the clone first is the best route to go. I mean if
you love the clone, you can bet you'll love the real thing. But if you
don't then you didn't wasted tons of bucks. IMO
Kyle Elbaz: I bought a trident and wish I could return it! Getting the base off is a
ridiculous process that usually involves a screwdriver. Whoever made these
things sucks, they made the part you remove the most ridiculous. I was
excited to start sub ohming but this just turns me off.
George McCormick: Will this particular clone fit onto my genuine ProVari Variable Voltage
V2.5 (Satin Silver) ??
L.Jacob Brown: This vid convinced me to order the clone from fast tech. This will be my
1st dripping atomizer, so I'm taking the hobby to the next level. I really
like your vids so I'll keep ya posted as to my success(or lack there of)
Susazeu z: I'd never buy the original due to price. Maybe I'd the original was below
50 bucks yes. But being the clone as good, I buy the clone hands down.
David Nemeth: well my question here is knowing the market we live in. PPL want quality
and a good price. now with all the clones and some are EXCELLENT remakes
why the hell cant the originators put there products at a more competitive
price. china seems to do it very well and they are taking the market share
from the creators. walmart showed us volume sales at lower prices still
brings HUGE profits. thank you tripper for showing us both sides clone and
originals love em or hate em they are both here. and i still love the
debate over my russian 91%
goldark3: I wouldnt buy the real one if i where impressed with the clone why ?I like
to save and have quality vaping with minimal investement
Fernando Gomez: @kennethmurphy i have the exact set up and love it. Im currently working on
a maraxus trident combo and yes rip trippers if i had the money i would
possibly buy it, but only as a "trophy"
Dillan Addington: I don't know how i ended up at this video, what the heck is that thing? Is
it for smoking or some weird medical crap???
Anthony Lamas: How can i get replacement screws for the trident rda. Because i lost 1 of
the screws when i was building a coil I've been looking for the screws
online and i cant find them please commit back
7247tank7247: Hay Ripp do you think that the clones are just the rejects from the same
stormbrew kyle: hey RiP Trippers. I really love your videos especially that I am new to
vaping. I've got this Trident V2 Clone and Im kinda satisfied with it. Can
you do a review for the Trident V2? Thank you for your tutorials :)
JBPILEGGI: If there is a clone that matches the original device in performance and
durability ( be it a Atomic, Brass Monkee or whatever ) I will purchase the
clone 1st simply due to the $$$
edmundo oliver: yes for my collection
SickOfLife90: Watching while vapin on a Trident Clone on a Sentinel Clone. No
complaints out of me. Thanks for the great videos. You are the reason I
got into mods and building coils and have helped me greatly!
Marcelo Vettorello: Someone knows if It works on Joyetech Evic ?
dominic rivera: If I had bought the clone and had tried the real RDA and could say they hit
the same IMO I would feel a waste to buy the same thing I already own but
for more money. I'd rather search something else that I don't have.
Alonso Gonzalez: link doesn't work for discount site. wat kind of advertising is this?
WhiteBoyVideos100: I lost one of the nuts for the post on mine does anyone know where I get a
replacement I've been looking everywhere can't find them anywhere I have an
authentic trident just like the one in the video
Frank Hansen: Hay Rip
I would definitely buy the real thing I prefer having the original, nothing
it's just a quark with me.
Justin Gardner: Demon dog lol I just bought it today u got me all pumped I got the clone
daniel davis: if i owned a clone and it performs as good or better i would not buy the
real thing cuz im not a collector but some will buy the real thing cuz they
will be come like trophy's and if u have clones then there not going to get
the same respect as the real ones thats just my opinion
Noah Yolles: For the Trident V2 clone, which brand is better, EhPro or Tobeco?
Doug Bline: Do you think this would fit flush and look good on a Nemesis or Chi you?
Vance Bergersen: No if I was happy with the $23 clone I would not spend $110 for the same
exact vape. Thanks for the videos rip. Absolutely love your channel.
