Does anyone buy original YOSHIOKA's Glass Nylon Props from Yoshioka of Japan?
I called up Yoshioka today and they were very kind enough to answer my Qs.
Yoshioka have stopped producing their GN Props because the market is shrinking. Their late productions were done in China. That will the reason why TT have the copied molds. Of course Yoshioka still have the right of the props and TT's are illegal.
Yoshioka still have enough numbers of stocks, both 11x4.5 and 12x5.5. They stock less than a thousand but enough for our C/L market (I do know how many they stock now).
If someone want to buy a few hundreds of GN Props, they can offer Qty special rates.

Akihiro, Please show us a way to buy from Yoshioka and we will do it. Do they sell direct, is there a dealer we can call that speaks English?

Akihiro Danjo I spent quite a bit of time trying to contacting them a while back with no luck.

Akihiro has made this claim of counter fitting before and I do not doubt his claim

But  each time he has been asked to provide a reliable source to buy the real deal props....

I spent way too may google searchs

I got in on the first Rick buy and what he sent me work very well

This new buy for me is to have a good supply on hand...I still break props

I do not really care what Asian companies fight with each other over copy right or patent infringement

If Akihiro will please publish a good place to purchase Yoshioka props...do so...or ...oh well the rest of my thought is very rude

After my last post here, I got a message from whom I had thought he must be one of the best person to deal the props.
I informed him about Yoshioka's contact. So now I hope things go well.

    This sounds like a good way to go. Takes the pressure off Rick Bollinger a little bit if it all works out. I'm still in for the same order of 6 of each, 11-4.5 and 12.5-5.5. Good luck on the contacts.
