    I had a choice between rhodium plated and gold... thought I'd go with the gold one but now I kind of regret it. Thinking about putting it up for trade or selling it altogether.
    Not sure what I'd go for though.
    Nick Ricotta has a new 350 mech called the Titan and it looks pretty nice.

    Sure would! I just got offered one after asking if he was going to do another list. Dude is friends with Trevor so I'd be a little more confident with the purchase.

    Maybe one of you can explain this to me.

    Hardware section: Feedback thread posts


    Is the "leave feedback" option not a thing these days?


    Just seems the hardware section is riddled with these thread posts

    If a seller has multiple items in a thread he or she can only leave feedback to one buyer. Once that thread is used in the feedback system it cannot be used again.

    What bridge you use for them? the bridges are the most confusing side of the BB, knowing which ones you need for set coils.

    I use the MF Bridge Full Kit and the Ohman EUCapsule.

    MF Bridge - full size Vaporesso EUC for direct lung
    MF Bridge Full Kit - includes an adapter to use Vaporesso EUC Drizzle coils for MTL
    Ohman EUCapsule - only allows use of Vaporesso Drizzle coils (not made anymore)

    Not a problem. I'm actually working with SXK to produce a new adapter for their bridge that actually fits the Drizzle coils. Shocked they're actually listening.
    I'll keep you and everyone else updated on those here.

    I only tried the 1.4 ones. Flavor was good but too much air for me and they didn't last nearong enough compared to the EUCs

    Hi, first post here, I've been following this thread for a couple of weeks.
    I just bought a SXK BB 60W an Exocet and an Insider. I need help with the coil height on the Exocet, I'm using a 3mm fused clapton and placed it close to the airflow. Should I try it higher?
    Thanks!

    Does best with single strand coils.

    2.5mm even 2mm 26g 5-7 wraps.

    Remember the chamber is tiny compared to regular rtas, build accordingly

    Gl!

    I used to run it fairly close to the AF opening... believer in half the diameter of coil is distance from AF.

    So if you run a 3mm - 1.5mm above...2mm would be 1mm above.

    Just a suggestion, but maybe have a set forum for the feedback threads, least be easier for mods to find the threads, and know the forum software I use to work with, could do actions on multiple threads in the same forum.

    Well, I think I just did my last group buy on FB.
    Paid for a Gate MTL RTA on 6/7 and that same day the posted that they would be there by the end of the week, meaning 6/14-6/15. As of yesterday folks started asking where they were... silence.
    Dude posts today basically saying everyone that asked was out of line.

    I could have ordered from FT on 6/7 and had it in hand in the same amount of time or less... for $3ish less after shipping and PP fees.

    Totally justified. If the items are hard to get it makes sense, but not with run of the mill China gear like this.

    Once they decided to do waffles on used gear at high premiums, I knew they went the direction of shit.

    Think there is only one person I would deal with on their mod team and that is Loren.


    There were a lot of stupid groups I left over the past year and recently a bunch in which I know I'll never care about getting stuff from...

    but it was this one group that always irked me and people thought he was the purveyor of fine arts... some ginger beared fuck from the UK who always advertised new drops from high end makers, but never had more than 3 mods or attys at a time... think hes an admin for the HEAT group also... which is another shit group I left long ago...

    But yeah, still sore about the whole debacle that unfolded when I questioned Scotts $1800 profiting on the Flave 22ti... Cheaper to buy direct ;)

    Ranks up there with that tatted out fool whom stole money from peeps like every 3 months, that was an admin of Sqonk'Merica at one time, Allen something lol...

    Things have a changed a bit since Allen haha. That dude started his own group and pulled the same shit. Can't believe people actually joined it.
    I normally don't mind a wait, or people making money from buys. Just communicate. No response for 12 days and act irritated when people ask what's up?

    Just a heads up for those looking for an authentic Dvarw MTL! Stratum (based out of Massachusetts) will have them in stock sometime tomorrow. I'm sure they'll go stupid fast, but you can sign up for notifications and create an account in advance so you can check out quickly.

    I used EUC for awhile a couple years ago but not the ceramic, these are the the energizer bunny.......30 ml in a week and still going strong.
    Have 3 rba bridges I haven't even touched.
    BB paired with a drizzle is so convenient and hassle free....I'm in love...

    Not yet, I've been spending my money on knives (thanks a bunch @~Don~ :gaah:) but nothing in the CRK class, not yet. A couple of flippers with M390 blades and three SOG (you'll like the Slim Jim- quick deploy, fits in a tight space though not the most comfortable handle profile, it gets the job done). I'm looking at a couple of Scandi type knives, then I'm done....till I save enough for a Sebenza 31 (if it is @~Don~ approved :vino:) I bought several Kershaw flippers, kept a few and gifted a handfull to a good friend who is retired and has limited funds.

    This is one of the ones I'm looking at https://www.varusteleka.com/en/product/woodsknife-leuku-145/27471

    And to answer it more completely, FT has all the colors but no MAP and I ain't spending $75 on a Bantam:vino:

    The black one is the only one with a MAP code now. Apparently SXK squeezed them into removing it! Maybe 3F has it cheaper? Haven't looked at it yet.
