Fake Mesto Sprayers

Postby icleananycar » Wed May 06, 2015 4:09 pm

A heads up to anybody thinking of investing. I bought this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/390628666784 and I'm certain its a fake. Firstly the label on the bottom is covering Made in Italy and the thing only weighs 455g when the real thing is 510g. And it doesn't feel 'right' or of high quality. I have asked the seller to reassure me that its legit and will update when I have heard back.

The seller has come back to me saying that their suppliers have stated they bought direct from Mesto. The plot thickens. I guess I'll email Mesto direct to try to get to the bottom of it.

Having looked at lots of videos/reviews of these things I think the weigh loss has come from the bottle. The bottle that I received didn't have the black base like the ones in the pictures. This would have had a knock on effect of making the entire thing feel more flimsy than it should. I'm starting to think that somewhere along the line a load of foamer heads have been bought legitimately and the bottles added afterwards? This was what was under the label on the base of my bottle. I always though that they were German design and made.
