    coincidence... not but a few minutes ago, some poor sap posted on Odis on just getting a V1 in trade... was asking on expectations... the inner jack ass in me was going to type out a snarky comment, but backed off lol

    Was along the lines of asking to trade back even at a loss... toss it in the trash... if you like your BB don't use it, it will leak...

    If it works and you don't use it, sell that shiz! You can at least recoup some of what you spent rather than be stuck with what amounts to a brick for you.

    I would if I could find it! My better half was very nice and "organized" my stuff. She was very excited while my jaw hit the floor, she thought I was pleased! She got a bit upset when I told her that if she really wants to help, she should leave my shtuff alone, pretty please with sugar on it and a cherry on top!
    That was a rather expensive thing:headbang:In retrospect, I should've shut up!

    @R3alJim Shady I have been an Admin for them for a long time and a BB fanatic from way back... I have played with all the bridges and although I don't use my BB's that much these days I still have 3 left. I still love my original Flow and the V2 is busy being alpha tested at the moment...

    Bantam battery life update:

    Vapcell 1100mah 10a gave up the ghost at 7:20 this morning. Vaped it from around 2:00 yesterday afternoon, but not exclusively until after 6:00pm. Hit the sack around 11:00, then back up at 6:00am today.
    All this on a 1.3 ohm round wire coil in the VapeShell at 12 watts. Initial impression is that it will last through a work day but I'm still testing. Keeppower 1200mah up next.
    SXK Bridges should be here this afternoon.

    Yeah I'm of the same mind. Maybe I'll trade for one down the road but I'm not shelling out $150 for it now.
    Not sure I'm a fan of how tall it is for only a 2ml capacity. Even though Lord Todd of the Shed says a 3.5ml extension is coming out that's even MORE cash and MORE height.

    That looks really promising across the board. I like that he went with an Exocet style of wicking.
    To be honest I can't imagine it will vape any better than my VapeShell, but we'll see when reviews come out.

    So the Drizzle coils DO NOT fit the SXK bridge.
    The bottom portion where the coil rests isn't wide enough for the coil head to make it down into the well. Those fuck heads made their coil heads with the exact same design, only with a thinner band at the base of the coil head.
    I have two so I may play around a bit to see if I can get one to fit. I also plan to actually try their coil head out. I suppose if it works just as well, great. If not, garbage.

    The fact that he is restricting the airflow in what amounts to be the drip tip makes it a no go for me. If the insert was under the coil, he would have something going. Yes, you have a smaller chamber but it will still have lots of air coming under the coil. As least that's what I surmise after 2 min of the video. Will see the whole thing when I get home.

    There are inserts that go under the coil too.

    I have one of these in the garage somewhere

    [​IMG]

    It’s a flaring tool... used it to stretch copper back in the day.

    They have cheap ones but probably not worth the purchase for something so inexpensive

    Yeah if I already had something like that I'd give it a good. I wonder if I have a dremel bit that would get me the size I'd need.
    I reached out to SXK to see if I can get some explanation since they actually did advertise it as compatible with EUC coils. Maybe I can get them to make the proper size insert and they can send me replacements for free [​IMG][​IMG]

    @R3alJim Shady, now that you had a day -more or less - with the Bantam, would you buy another if you lost this one? My Z Biip bit the dust and the Nord went south after a full cycle in the washing machine so I want a good, discreet mtl toy. I might have to buy another Z Biip just because I have three packs of pods and five packs of coils I found while looking for something else (remember the organizing wife surprised[shocked ] me with) but I guess a backup wouldn't hurt.

    Have Vapresso not just released a new tank VM tank , (VM Tank 22 Adapted
    EUC CCELL coil Pre-Installed
    CCELL Coil and Mesh Tea Fiber Coil)
    with 2 new different EUC type coils,
    maybe it fits those 2 new EUC coils
    Or just SXK wants to get in on selling coils since it's a consistent revenue,

    Wait a minute! Is it mandatory to include a knife of some sort in your BB pics? Like the Kershaws, @~Don~ got me hooked on their flippers and I just had to have the Link in M390!

    I really would. I enjoy being able to use the same Boros I already have set up and just swapping them out between the Bantam and my BB.
    I ordered a set of panels from troydestroy and a whistle tip from Never Normal that covers the Boro nut. So yeah, I'm all in with this guy.

    I've got a message in wia WhatsApp to SXK calling them out on the issue. Let's see what they say.
    Either way, it's really irritating.

    Have you tried the bridge with regular EUC coils ( non drizzle ) ?

    ETA: After looking at the coils again, I don't think that's the case either, the coils they show look more like the drizzle versions. I was hoping it would work too because I don't have the MTL adapters for the MF bridge so can't try those coils yet. :gaah:

    Yeah the standard EUCs are definitely larger than the Drizzle's even. I may take a drill to it to see if I can get it to fit...

    Given the way they described the bridge, I would have thought the same as you; that the EUC coils should be an option and not just their version. I guess they don't have to worry about getting dinged for false advertising though unfortunately. It would have been smarter of them to make them compatible however.
