Same here,
But what surprises me is WHY the “Authorities”, customs, The Police, Father Christmas, who ever,
doesn't stop them at the borders before the reach the end user, especially in a country like Australia.
We are an island,if they haven't noticed for sure they can stop them at the point of entry.
By the way I have no connection with any manufacturer. I am just pissed off with the way that the system works. Angry Angry

Basically it's because there are no laws that cross country borders. In China, it is not illegal to make a copy of a product and sell it. Thus, the proliferation of clones. To be completely frank about it, don't we all look for a bargain? Do you pay retail if you don't have to? Over here, my go to place is KellyCo which has some of the best deals around. I can't blame a beginner for shopping a bargain.

In actual fact, it would cost more than $400 to produce a DVD player in the US. Buying it from China via a department store, they can be had for under $20. Crazy, but true.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Yes the Law
I used to buy from KellyCo.
Today if I want to buy a Whites or Garrett product I can't.
They are not allowed to sell it to me.
I have to go to the local dealer,
but I can buy clones form China.
i wonder do they actually work?

Well if you want anything from Whites I can send it to you and Where you pay about $1500 AUD for an MXT All Pro I get them for about $920.00 AUD and the postage is not too bad either, I could still save you over $400 Bucks,

Just a thought anyway,

RR.

In the U.S.A. Customs Seizes many Bootleg Products coming in.  Shipper has two option.  Pay shipping back to origin or agree to have it destroyed.  Most opt for the second.

I wonder how much gets snuck out instead of being destroyed.
