*There is another thread on YYE that thoroughly explains how to identify YYR fakes, and there are comparison/closeups there for Messiah, Overdrive, Sleipnir Take That.
Thanks for letting the community know!
Dammit so many and hard to discern
Indeed, but for dazzler and draupnir it is identifiable just through images because of the engraving.
these are like 2 dollars a pop right or am i missing somthing?
Depends, the fake mustang is $200
it says yen for me, like japanese currency
Ahh I see your point. Japanese and Chinese are quite similar so it’s confusing
We share the same currency symbol (¥) and character (元). So the prices are in Chinese Yuan.
This can really F* the game up
This post is 99% advertisement and 1% actual warning.
I mean, you guys see it, don’t you? Please tell me you see it.
I mean either way this is more helpful than harmful if you are in the market to buy these yoyos, as it shows what the fakes look like.
The links are deleted… by all means I didn’t mean to promote…
That is another sign of a quality product - it is being copied Thanks for info.
Guys I’m not going to send links in this thread or in dms. If you want comparison photos Im more than happy to send!
Thanks, this is crazy. Good to know!
Extra images, YYR onslaught and a Slepnir comparison post is added
Draupnir, Dazzler and Phaser comparison posts are added
My question is- who is out here putting all this effort to reproduce yoyos🤣 whhhyyyy
Like how much are they really making in profit? How many are actually floating around?
Chinese dudes. No offence to chinese yoers or chinese people in general. Production in China is pretty cheap, so for them it is quite profitable, at least in small numbers.
