Default Fat Boy shift **** (tommy kaira clone)

I searched the forum but couldn't find any info regarding this shift ****. Has anyone ever bought one of these that could provide some feedback? From the pics, the black oxide color looks pretty sweet. It is essentially a replica of the Tommy Keira hebi bebi **** though, only thing missing is the turtle. I can't really justify spending close to 300 bills on a shift ****, 100 is a little more doable for me. If I can get the same functionality out of it as the original, it would be great. Let me know what you guys think, good or bad!

Here is the link for the shift ****:

Here is what I found online from a reviewer:

Though I hate replicas... The black oxide one looks good. TK had a special edition black **** but it didn't work for the Z

Size/shape may be there same, but the TK has the turtle on the top which will set them apart for sure.

At least you don't have to spend hours figuring out ways to align the turtle now.

I wouldn't even say the shape of the TommyKaira is ideal, I own the authentic TK **** and i've became used to the shape but I originally bought the authentic TK because I thought it was a really cool and rare part.
