    Looks interesting, this would be my first Kayfun. Doesn't seem like anyone in North America has them in stock yet. Anyone else thinking of getting one of these?

    I believe they were in stock on the 22nd and the first batch sold out in probably seconds, who knows when the second batch will arrive. A company like SvoeMesto knows damn well this will be a popular item, why not prepare properly for a release and make enough? I have/had full intentions of buying an authentic, but no wonder people buy clones, you can pre order the clone now but not the authentic and there will be no shortages in product.

    I like the idea of the KF series continuing, but this one is sorta odd. That 510-setscrew AF thing?



    I already have a few old modded KF 3.1 clones that still work fine, so not sure why I'd need this one.

    Yeah I’m sure it will vape damn near identical, but it’s new and shiny!
    Seriously though I do like it for the looks, short and sleek, but the whole availablity thing has turned me off.

    Agreed, it's the first of the kayfun series where I actually like the way it looks. For those who have kayfuns how do they vape for an mtl compared to other mtl rta's? I've tried most of the mtl rta's released last year and none of them were that great for me except the siren v2.

    Depends which kayfun, the v4 and older ones were fine for mtl or could be restricted enough. V5, eh, not so much. More of a restrictive direct lung. I have noticed that a lot of people who are into 'mtl' when it comes to rta's and things do ok with an airy mtl. I'm not fond of it, like shit or get off the pot. Either make it restrictive for a mouth pull or make it open enough for dl or restricted dl. To be fair I'm comparing to the sort of draw similar to a cig which is pretty restrictive. Puffing and pulling the smoke through packed tobacco then through a restrictive filter. Even a small looking hole is wide open and air slips through a lot faster compared to a traditional smoke.

    For a vape comparison while the vapor production was kinda cruddy, cigalikes had the draw down. So did ego pens. However compare the tiny ass stem or chimney and needle sized openings along with tiny micro coils to the much larger coils found in rta's. Even a lot of smaller looking chimneys are easily 3-4x the diameter of those ego tanks. That loose mouth draw with little to no resistance tends to make me cough. It's like pulling or sucking on a straw expecting milkshake and the end of the straw pops out and whoosh, all you get is air.

    Read somewhere that some folks are experiencing leaking from the 510 ...they are aware of it and working on it

    If I could buy an authentic kayfun lite or lite plus I would. The prime is a bit loose for my morning mtl needs and love all my clone lites , so this new one will have to do. Don't mind bottom filling and looks much easier to fill than my beloved doggystyle.
    .
    But.... I'm hearing murmurs about gurgling and now leaking, hmmmm I really could go either way,more reliable reports needed, but....all the shiny extras and a 24mm version .

    So in short I don't know if I need this or not.

    It is cute. The tank holds too little juice for me though. I'll stick to the v5 and the 3.1.

    Seeing more and more reports of problems with leaking, thought about trying one, but nah, I'll stick with my primes.

    I was interested too, until I found out the tank was acrylic and not glass. What a step backward imo.

    Hmm...reports of gurgling and leaking are a bit concerning. Maybe I'll hold off a while to see what pans out.

    Looks like the clones have the old style metal airscrew, like kfmv3. At least the sxk version.so replace with authentic spare as my usual clone routine.

    Anymore reports on authentic or clones.

    The 2019 is a great tank IMO. I’d recommend anyone to pick up the long mode kit as well, on the 24mm I can last pretty much the whole day without refilling.

    Also for anyone that is having seepage through the nylon 510 screw all that is needed is the smallest sliver of Teflon pipe tape around the screw, problem solved.

    Do I need one ?, NO .
    Do I want one ?, YES.

    At the moment I’m using a Prime & Squape X so I’m wondering wether it’s even worth it to buy one , if I do it’ll be for looks only , I do like the looks of em.
    Hmmmm we will see !!!
