I've never been much of a fan of the Tripod, however I only own the Wejoy-tech version,(this SKU also, I believe) It is 1 to 1, so depending on your non-authentic version, you may at the very least have replacement parts. I do know one thing, and that is that Ulton versions tend not to be 1 to 1, and often that carries over to parts not being interchangeable. They are usually fine on their own merits - just not 1 to 1, exact clones.

Hope you enjoy the Carbon-coated tripod, it's definitely a looker. I have recently signed up for an authentic DLC GT5, which should release later this summer. That's more my style, and I am equally filled with excitement, and the dread of paying 269.99 for an atomizer - something I very rarely do!
