    Competition is undercutting to be at price, they have an inferior product they're pushing on twitter but it's at cost and I cannot match that price. What ways did you deal with competition? They're even buying my product and deconstructing it to show how "crappy" it is and constantly they're after me.

    Advice? Just ignore or start a feud which I'm not about.

    Ignoring it seems foolish - especially if its negatively affecting your business.

    If you genuinely have a better product, make it known. Do a side-by-side comparison or something like that. Show them why your product is worth extra. If you have a hard time doing that, then you'll need to revamp your product.

    Remind people that price and quality goes together, so if they want a discount low level crap they should go to your competitors wheras if they want high quality value for money they go to you, in reality they aren't even competition they are inferior wannabes without the skills to develop them selfs so they have to wait for you to do i for them.
    Kind of a funny thought but the fact that they buy your product to pick it apart to show how "crappy" it is, I would use that as an endorsment from them along the lines of "So supperrior that even out competitors use us!!"

    Mock them....make a video and show ur clients how desperate is ur competition to reach ur lvl. This way u will indirectly disiminate the ideea that u are the leader in ur niche. People tend to follow leaders.

    He said a "client of his" bought our balls not him to compare them. He won't admit he did. Also he reported our facebook page and it got taken down temporarily.
    I don't want to give them any attention but his are so cheap, people are willing to sacrifice some quality for this product which is also much smaller.

    Well the good thing is he is really GOD DAMN scared of you, spending so much tie and energy on you/your product.
    now I don't know your market or profitability and stuff, but maybe it would be worthwhile ahving an attorney look into this couse at least where I am from what he is doing is illegal marketing, and the final nail in that coffin of his was when he reported your facebook page.

    I hnestly must admit I don't understand why anybody would be spending that much time and energy on a competitor as he seems to do, instead of just building his own brand/product, but then again I guess some people are just that way.

    There are ofcourse ways to bring a guy like this to his knees, but it recuires an amount of resources in either time or money, and a low business moral/ethics, so wether or not it is worth it is something that should be considered thoughroughly

    I control niches by setting up review websites that talk about the specific products I offwer. Might be useful for you.

    He is overseas, I'm US. He said he's trying to make the product affordable. He's stealing business away, not a bunch of business, but enough to piss me off. Why is he doing it? I literally have no idea why. Our product isn't copyrighted or trademarked. I talked to a lawyer he said there isn't much we can do either for trademarking.

    What else can I do to solve this issue?

    Edit: Also to clarify, our product is one of a kind and the only one for mass sale in the entire world until he came along. It's profitable, but he's selling pretty much at cost, maybe make $5 per sale, it can't be that much money for the trouble of making.

    In that case he must be an idiot, I honestly don't get these kind of guys, but they do exist.

    The best way is to always analyse what your competitors are doing. It is always a great way to get insights. You will probably identify and area that they may be doing poorly. When you provide services with an improvement in that area, you will slowly gain that competitive advantage. You can even use some of the spying tools that are available today to make this happen.

    He isn't doing much other than, stole our idea, made it almost at cost and is spamming our twitter with how his product is better.
