If I am correct, I have got an email from Castle a while ago, mentioning that there where knock offs on the market, specificly sold from China.
I can not find the email in my inbox tho..

There are a lot of counterfeit Castle motors from China right now...

We are working with authorities here in the USA, but it's hard to police worldwide.

If it's too cheap to be true, it's probably not real.

You can always ask the seller where the purchased the motors. If they came directly from China, and not from a distributor, then they are counterfeit.

Thanks!

Are not all Castle Motors manufactured in China? So if purchased from a distributor, the distributor has purchased from China themselves?

If it's a Castle branded motor, and it's purchased directly from China, it is counterfeit.

Castle motors must be purchased from Castle. Whether through distribution, or direct.
