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.
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
necrom21221: Cant afford the real thing. Always buy clones cause it works just about
the same or even better.
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.
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)
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?
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!
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
George McCormick: Will this particular clone fit onto my genuine ProVari Variable Voltage
V2.5 (Satin Silver) ??
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.
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.
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
edmundo oliver: yes for my collection
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.
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
GoldSlidePark: Do an atomic RDA vs a really good atomic clone please?
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"
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.
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.
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.
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)
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 $$$
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.
Mike Mix: Will it fit vamo v5?
Troy Finley: Would not buy the real thing if the clone is satisfying ...there is no
Marcelo Vettorello: Someone knows if It works on Joyetech Evic ?
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%
Alonso Gonzalez: link doesn't work for discount site. wat kind of advertising is this?
Chris Macurdy: i got my trident clone from fasttech for like 18 bucks. i love it. he is
right one the adjustable air flow, and its just as had if not harder to
adjust it. i have to push it out from the bottom. im using it on a nemmy,
and mvp. i just got vtc4 and just did my first sub ohm build today. thanks
to to help of all you juice junkies out there. its with a 28 gauge dual
coil, at .5 ohms. love this rda. kicks the crap out of my nimbus, even
after boring the holes out in the nimbus. would i buy the really Trident
RDA. i would if i had the extra cash. between bills, and a hobby that i
love, buying extra mod clones to get others started, and ect. i dont have
the money to. im looking into buying a really russain 91. i have the clone
and love it as a tank rebuild able. i cant wait till my dna 30 clone no
logo comes to try the trident on it.
7247tank7247: Hay Ripp do you think that the clones are just the rejects from the same
Justin Gardner: Demon dog lol I just bought it today u got me all pumped I got the clone
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.
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.
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!
Josh Wise: Anyone know where he got those drip tips from?
Sawier: got my clone for 12 bucks, works an looks awesome, and mine looks more like
your original in this video, even has logo
freifallspoiler: To anskwer your question: If I am happy with the clone, I'd be happy. I
would not buy a mostly identical more expensive device after I have bought
a good clone.
Things change if the clone sucks in quality, usage or vape.
DENMONKEY: Only ever vaped clone and would not spend the $s that's demanded by some of
the genuine articles. Over $30 for a RDA is taking the piss in my book.
Don't even start on the higher priced stuff.
I've invested in genuine mods though as I can see more value in them IMHO.
TBH if is wasn't for fasttech and MTBV I would prob hardly vape at all.
Doug Bline: If I bought the clone (which I might tomorrow) and I liked it, I would buy
the original if I had the money.
Noah Yolles: For the Trident V2 clone, which brand is better, EhPro or Tobeco?
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.
Thomas Li: How to sent u product for review?
FahimX95: Hi Rip, unfortunately, i wouldn't buy the real thing because its out of my
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
The Triim: First was the clone ??
zzwave: I have Trident V2 clone. Fantastic vape and flavour. Just fantastic.
Nothing like on my main ToBak RDA. Cons: ridiculously small capacity, I
literally need to drip eliquid after each two-three draws or I feel burnt
cotton taste. Draw is fully open (just like to breathe) on any air hole,
only way to make it more stiff is to half-close hole. Stock drip-tip is
totally unusable, as it wiggles waaaaaay too easily.
Alexandro345: No I wouldn't buy the real thing, a little piece of SS is not worth it. I
understand these people need to make money but I'm personally not going to
overpay if I don't have to. However...if the real thing was considerably
better in quality of vape amoung other things then I probably would.
