    Ugh. My bourbon vanilla custard recipe is a confirmed Drizzle coil killer... I was able to get about 3/4 through a boro full before it tasted burnt for the third time.
    I guess Cinnamon Donut is up next. If that doesn't work I'm sure the RY4 recipe I make won't be much better. Bummer.

    My Xeta arrived today from Australia and I must say the bits and pieces in the package are really complete! I think this bridge will suit everyone from the MTL to DL brigade because of the way you can customize it!

    I went for as fully open as I could get it and for me it's glorious! So good to have some airflow in a Billet Box!

    It was a really simple and easy to build both with the coil and the wicking!

    I went with a Ni80 2.5mm Nano Alien 3x29/38 0.4Ω and at 27 watts!

    The flavour is excellent and after a few minutes with the Xeta I know it's a Chicken Dinner! Haku has hit a home run with this one!

    This is the first bridge I've been interested in for a while now. Should you want to part with it at some time , I'm calling dibs.

    Couple of updates:

    Provapes is sending me replacement bases for the SXK bridge that's compatible with EUC coils. Just cost of shipping
    I'll let you guys know if they make a difference in terms of leakage and such after they arrive next week.

    Also, the Smok Nord 1.4 ceramic coils officially suck ass. Flavor is minimal bc of the airflow being too open. Didn't really have great life either. A week maybe? I'm on the 0.8 MTL coils now. I really like them! Flavorful, hot vape. A bit on the open side in the Nord, but if you use the AFC rings with the North Bridge I'm sure it will be much better.

    No ideas other than the usual suspects:
    Coil
    Buggered screw or post threads
    Cracked PEEK (?)

    And the big win is I'm not getting any leaking or even condensation. I guess with an open airflow there is much time for condensation! There is a very slight condensation on the door. This is after 3 refills!

    Thanks :)

    The guy called them "Limelight Stabwood Panels." I don't know if that's the outfit that made them or what.

    The 3d printed Skull Candy panels were included in the trade though. Along with the stock rat black ones.

    I can't speak to the airflow on the RDL deck, but I will saw that I really love the GTR. Simple design, flavor, and build quality is excellent. Only issue for is that it's 23mm so I can't use it on any of my tube mechs.

    Just put a new coil in the vapeshell. Way better now.

    Are your coil legs supposed to go on a certain side of the post screw? One side has a little cut out.

    I use the right side for thinner wire and the left side of the screw for thicker wire. Not sure if it was designed that way on purpose or not.

    I actually used my Inkosi to chop it up when I made one earlier.

    1-egg
    1/2 cup mozzarella
    Dash of Vanilla Extract
    1-tsp of Almond flour

    Mix, dump in, win

    Then I added in the bowl...

    1-Scrambled Egg
    1- dollop of Cream Cheese
    1-Slice of Bacon crumbled
    5ml of Walden’s Pancake Syrup


    <420 calories 3 net carbs

    And delish

    Anyone own a Noob box yet. That is the 18350 Proteus Projeks one. I'm picking up my second tomorrow. It's really well built. Problem is that it's an 18350. They are coming out with a board (you can insert it) that is a DNA 60, lol. I mean vaping over 14 watts is already a no go on an 18350. I get that the DNA 60 is a great board but efficient for 18350s? Nope. Right now it has a mosfet with protections and works really well with a rebuildable (preference ois boxxer) or a Nautilink with the .7 ohm NS coil.
    Yes it is costly. Meh. You only get to live once.

    I saw that. It looks great but I struggle to understand why this costs so much more than the Limelight 50/50. Essentially the same components and function, but unnecessarily larger. For that price I'd pick up a Delro instead and that uses an 18650.
    Just my 2¢, mind you.

    It is beautifully built and soon will have replaceable chips. A DNA 60 is still damn good even vaped at 15 watts. The mosfet will handle 50 amps no issue - never going to use that. This was built to customize from chip sets, to bridges to panels. Yep, it's pricey. And it ain't that large. Bigger than a Bantam but way smaller than a Billet.
    And I'm not knocking the limelight or the delro. I plan on picking up both.

    I just wish someone would just redesign the Footprint of the BB to accept a larger boro...you can make the boro 5mm taller and 5mm wider, this would essentially make it nearly 8ml.

    That would get me back into a BB I think...maybe lol

    Sounds like a very cool device! Only downside is the limitation of the 18350. Necessary to keep the size down, but it makes the DNA 60 seem kind of pointless. Would probably be better off with a lipo.
