In this article we’ll be taking a look at Authentic and Clone tanks and seeing which one is better.
First let's take a look at the differences between the two.
Simply put, these tanks are replicas that are designed to look, function and feel just like the real deal. Often times it's very hard to distinguish between the clone and the original tank. Not only do the clones use the same build materials as their authentic counterparts, but they also function and operate just as well. Clones have come a long way in the last few years and there are some real quality tanks out there!
Just as the name implies, these tanks are the original design from the original manufacturer. Authentic tanks are of extremely high quality and are made with the best parts.
So now the big question, which one is better? Honestly, this comes down to personal preference. Sure the Authentic tanks might feel like they are made slightly better than their clone counterparts, but is it worth the extra price?
With all of the information provided, let’s see which tank's the best value.
Authentic tanks are definitely the best option when money isn't a concern. The quality is noticeably better when compared to a clone. On top of the quality being better you also have the added benefit of being able to contact the manufacturer if there is any problems or issues that arise with the tank. These companies have great customer satisfaction ratings.
Clone tanks are a better option when money is an issue. The fact that Clones are so inexpensive, it makes them a major threat to Authentic tank companies. Since Clones are essentially copying their Authentic counterparts, it allows them to offer basically the same design and performance at a fraction of the price. If you showed someone two different tanks, with no markings or labeling on them, and told them that one of them was $80 and that the other one was $20, you can almost bet that the person would choose the much cheaper option.
With all that being said, is one tank better than the other? If I had to choose which tank is better I would go Authentic. The added comfort of being able to deal with an established company if there are any issues, makes it an easy decision for me. As with many things in life, you get what you pay for. Sure you might find a few good tanks out there for a fraction of the price, but when you buy Authentic you know what you are getting!
