Ulton clones are fine, but rarely one to one. "Made by Ulton" on the bottom ruins it for me sometimes. I definitely can't agree that Ulton are "more established" than SXK or YFTK...that's just crazy talk! SXK and YFTK were making near 1 to 1 Billet Box clones before Ulton as a brand even existed.

The scary truth is that Ulton, YFTK, Coppervape, etc...pretty much all the clonemakers except SXK, are showing obvious signs of slowing production, with Ulton or YFTK only releasing products sporadically, and even then only "trending" devices like MTL tanks or Billet/DOT bridges. Coppervape has turned into DB Coopervape, because nobody has seen them! I hope all these companies continue to weather the storm, but things come, things go...The industry is already paring down, with less manufacturers making more brands...what this means to us is good overall clone quality...A CNC machine works the same no matter what country it's located in!

Interestingly enough, Coppervape is out with a Skyline R clone now (in a couple of finishes). Speak of the devil, etc.

Guess you know FT's got it on pre-order in today's New Arrivals ( SKU 9737916). Don't mention the maker and while I'd like to see the deck, do like that they list "Deck Build Holes: 1.8mm".

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

So far Ulton, SXK, Coppervape and an unnamed clone (probably Wejoytec or Vazzling) have been listed.

Hold fire on the two that went up here today. One minute they were Ulton (and they may well be), then next minute the reference was gone. Best to wait until Anniepan can confirm one way or another.

Now confirmed, the current FT offerings are NOT the Ulton version.
