I don't see how their advertising literature is the same. If I was making a limb I'd "copy" that awesome limb tip design too and the best parts of any limb I can find. What's bad about that? As for the rest, Gobis and N3's feel very unalike on the draw. You would feel different about your post if you tried them.A whole courtroom full of patent lawyers wouldn't be able to accomplish a thing in China and Uukha knows it. It's well known that Chinese government has little regard for intellectual property rights or patent laws of any nation. Here in the US, the federal government has waged a losing battle against this sort of activity where the goods being imported not only look exactly like those made by the patent holder but the bootleggers have even copied their company name and logo.
As consumers, we have a choice where we spend our hard earned money. Low cost knockoffs are attractive, especially when they are well executed and seem to perform well. They're particularly attractive when the consumer perceives the worst case scenario is loss of their purchase price.
In this case, Nika seems to offer a replacement warranty which mitigates the consumer's concern about product failure even more, as long as they're around to honor it. On the other hand, if the product fails and you're seriously injured, good luck to you as it's very likely there is no product liability coverage to compensate you for your injuries. A consumer who has shot tens of thousands of arrows and never experienced a limb failure probably won't be concerned at all about that. If you're set on purchasing Nikas, I would suggest buying through a retail outlet in your home country. At least the retailer might have some product liability insurance.
Clearly, Nika has copied Uukha's product right down to the limb tip design, even using their advertising literature. Hey, at least Nika has their own logo!
Good points about limb failure and reparation. Thankfully my Nika's are flying along after thousands of arrows now. Really like them.
