    Everyone in this hobby has been burned from time to time. Even the big boys. With the forums and the Internet it is less likely to happen but you have to use the information available. Some fakes are very good but the bulk of them are easy to spot.

    Thanks joda I was sure it was but wanted an experienced opinion, I've spent lots of time looking at the stickies showing the differences between original and fake there a great source of info for a complete novice like me . I've been testing myself to see if I can spot the bad ones from good and I'm now getting it right most of the time but still much to learn! Can't wait to get my first buckle now!
