Why not genuine version?
Youde is a china manufacturer, produce original stuffs at low prices. So why FT sell poor copies of this manufacturer?
I prefer original version for the price (close from these copies)...

Just wondering, how were you able to tell? If this is indeed a clone, then yeah, Fast Tech should lower the price by $5 or so.

First it says Style, so yeah it's a clone. Second the positive post (the one in the middle) is completely different from the original.

When it says "style," typically it is a clone. Real items FT lists as "authentic" (such as "Authentic Kanger ProTank").

I know what "style" means for Fast Tech products. I guess I just missed it and only saw the IGO-W6 part. I've seen both types of positive posts. Some online vendors are selling this one and others are selling the ones with only the nuts.

This might actually be better than the original? The Igo-W6 was criticized for the weird and clumsy center post screws.

EDIT: I've only seen pictures in stores with the more clumsy center post with thumb screws. Not sure what to make of this, is there a "V2" of the Igo-W6?

@Dejay
If the one Fast Tech sells is the same as the picture I posted, it does seem like it is an improved version. On the picture I posted above, you can see they retained the knurled nut with a hole through the post. With this set up, you have 4 areas you can hook your positive lead to. The 1st would be under the Philips's screw, 2nd would be the top hole, 3rd would be the bottom hole, 4th would be trapping it under the knurled nut. V2 or not, this seems to be a win-win.

Ah thanks. But the pictures / review video's I've seen the Igo-W6 had a weird fixed flat top cap on the center post and four separate knurled nuts juggling around the center post. I decided against it because of that. Looks original and clone both have a better center post than that now though.

Old(?) version:

Dejay & PinoyBoy I think you're right, probably a better design than original. what put's me off is, I can buy a mech mod here for less than the price of this!
Eg SKU 1677404

For once it seems that fasttech's simplicity actually made this a better product.
