    Well apparantly, according to the EBAY listing, they have Silver now. i hope when you receive the fake, you figure out something on it that will identify it quickly.

    there is no fake solo (yet)! I've sent all sellers an email and every single one replied that they don't have them. I think these sellers started these offers just to see if there is enough demand to actually produce them.
    I guess it's the same with a few other units. What definitely does excist are vaporblunt 2.0, pinnacle pro, lifesaber and pax clones. Maybe the firefly, too.

    Out of curiosity why would you expect a product made in Canada to be cheaper when shipped to China for marketing? I agree, it smacks of a 'fishing expedition', a perverse sort of market research?

    Vapes actually made in China make much better candidates for 'gray market' (stolen, unauthorized production and so on) as well as flat out counterfeits I think. Not that fake Rolexes don't happen of course, but it's more logical to expect fake Casios?

    But legit Solos made in China don't make sense.

    Like others say 'stick to known, legit dealers'. Not only do you get an honest product but support you can count on.
