As title describes, i bought 12 days ago from China a full 15 piece set of winner racing silicone hoses at the price of 170 euros. I received today a bag  with enclosed different spec hoses (more silicone layers and cloth plus blue interior, "stops" at hoses entrances and "samco sport" printed on all of them.
Now i'm just wondering could it really be? Or they're just very good samco look alike hoses?
I didn't order any look alike product, i bought an actual chinese product that i knew was inferior to samco ofcourse, thats the weird thing.

That is weird. A bonus if they are genuine though.

What are the bleed nipples like?

haven't installed them yet, they look really good for the job and the money, a friend with original samcos on said theyre exactly the same. So or actual samcos or just REALLY good look alikes.
Bleed nipples seem very firm as made, what troubled me was that 2 of them were not put firmly on the hoses, meaning they were in need of some tightening, that's all. I'll take a pic of them if it helps. STILL theyre much much superior to the ones i actually paid for. I'll get the link too!

Maybe they have sent you the original set that they purchased in order to make up there copys?  :lol:

I'm assuming Samco make there hoses themselves? Or could this Chinese company be making products for Samco also?

Does it even matter? Sounds like you got a great deal.  :D

I've literally just registered here to post in this thread! It popped up in google when I was looking for replacement hoses.

Please provide the link to where you got these from, they look really good.

Ideally I want some black ones, not bothered if they're copies as long as the quality is good.

As we discussed in pm i'll post the code late afternoon, though i would suggest buying the EXACT same hoses in red i bought so u get the exact same quality i did. Maybe they got some "samco" leftovers in red :P

Thanks for the link!

Not sure why it's greek ebay - are you from greece?

I found the same item on UK ebay from the same seller: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 650wt_1547
