    Well you only won the deck... although it does come with a spares pack and a drip tip lol

    Pretty much what Brew said... if you buy the clone version, almost all the thingymabobs work... I would not buy the glass tank for the MTL... or bograt...unless you vape tank cracking juice

    get a 3.5 or 5ml tank section

    I was wondering about what fits between the clone and authentic. Orings are orings I was guessing, screws are screws. I run the 1mm insert and was thinking about a multiple hole not sure which one.
    I keep going back and forth on the glass. Like the look but, it's just a look. No tank crackers here, no Dani either. Just a Pico, not that I'm trying to compare the two, because there's not.

    The way I see it, you can buy several top fill tanks from FT for the price of a glass tank. They all break eventually so at least you'll have spares. My Pico 25 bit the dust...literally so I'll be looking for another mod that's similar in size, the other mods not currently being used were packed and put away....just wish I knew where...

    The pico is a fine mod for the Dvarw... I also use an Evic Primo Mini ... I like the big button on that mod, and the easy access battery... but I think I might have to give it an iso-bath soon... its weird, acts up sometimes... might finally got my $20 out of it and the 150k puffs lol

    Yup! Got an Evic Mini too...in the same place with the rest of the mods I can't find:headbang: Right now I use a Flask DNA 133, Pico 25 (wonky) and a VaporFi VGrip with my Dvarws. IF I have any play money left after the Blade show, (very doubtful) I might, just might get a Dani mini.

    It's hard to beat a Pico for a daily beater. I have the old standard 75 watt and a 21700 in use and same NIB stashed.

    :crazy: I seriously don't think you're bringing enough... it's one reason I won't go to a Blade Show... I'd end up spending thousands...





    It's like gun shows... I for sure stay away from those. I really want to buy a STI DVC-C 2011

    upload_2019-10-9_15-43-26.png

    But I'd settle for this

    upload_2019-10-9_15-46-41.png

    and if I were really hard up... guess this

    upload_2019-10-9_15-47-31.png

    I swear, I'd probably max out my Discover card and Visa if I went to a gun show LOL

    That is exactly why I leave all my credit cards and debit cards at home and take only the play money in cash with me..... It took many thousands to figure that one out:gaah: And them selling beer at those places doesn't help either:cheers:

    well to funny...

    10/8 I get the e-mail stating that they would refund me... hasn't happened... order is still pending on their site...

    10/10 (Today) I hear a knock... I go out there, its FedEx with my Nic from NR...


    Funny part, 2 days ago, I ordered nic from LNW to try also... which should be here Tomorrow or Saturday...


    Now I have nic for 2 years...


    Lets see if the refund goes through, normally takes 2-5 days LOL... if not, them assholes had me spend $20 on Nic from LNW lol... well $16 since they have a permanent 15% code

    So I am going to sell one of my Dvarw MTL's, figured I'd mention it here first if one of you wanted a series 18 version (older engraving)

    Complete with original drip tip (Unused) spares o-rings (Just ordered) 3.5ml section and one of the funky 2 x1.2mm AF insert and the assortment of other ones... will run it through the ultrasonic cleaner a few 10 min runs to have it cleaned.

    I'm thinking about it ... just don't know how long they will continue making these. I doubt they bothered to try and submit anything to the FDA so come May, they will not be able to sell anymore BB's regardless.

    If you could swing it and the availability was there, I don't think it would be a bad investment. Authentics seem to hold their value well. In fact, after May, I think they are going to be even more valuable.

    Do it!! :devil:

    LMAO I told my gf I'm trying so hard not to buy another billet box.

    Gf: if you want one, buy it

    Me: I don't need it

    Gf: I'll buy you one for your b-day. How much are they?

    Me: I'm not telling you

    Gf: just tell me

    Me: no way. You won't like it.

    Gf: c'mon

    Me: .....$300

    Gf: yeah I'm not buying that. What's different about it?

    Me: it's a different color!!

    Gf: That's it!!?? Yeah don't buy one.

    When my baby blue showed up my wife said, looks like you have another BB. I said ya, she said nice color...
    When the RPG came she said nothing.

    First sign you need to be careful is when they don't say anything. If she starts looking for the big cast iron frying pan,......RUN!

    Damn right we did. Packers got 13 points off bad calls that extended drives instead of punting.

    We're used to it, but it was nice that this time it was on national television so everyone could see it.

    I got a whole 4 hours of sleep for nothing.

    Alright you guys win, sort of.

    I saw @gsmit1 review on the clone xeta and he seems to like it.

    So I ordered 3 of them along with 3 things of VV superfine mtl coils that i like. :headbang:

    It incorporates the pros from other BB RBA's, particularly the Exocet, and avoids the cons. At least that's what I see. Whatever that's worth lol. You will definitely have no problem getting a tight mtl draw out of it. I didn't even use a chimney reducer, thinking that the insert under the coil would be enough. It didn't occur to me til after I already had it together that it would have reduced the chamber too. That's going in next time I rebuild it.

    Agreed on all counts, but I have a couple authentics. Best BB RBA I've used and I've tried the Exo, Insider, and VapeShell. My only beef with the Xeta is that your boro o-rings have to be pristine otherwise they bunch up on you. I can deal with that though... Looking into getting some softer red ones from Amazon.

    I tried the exocet clone a long time ago and all i got were dry hits or flooding. So I was afraid of the same thing with the xeta. I do like the build deck though.

    2.5mm coil and you should have plenty of wick to fill the space. I use a 2mm and raise the screws on the sides. Works perfectly for me. No gurgling, no dry hits... but I vape MTL and 60/40 vg/pg, too so take that into account.

    You're going to have a great time with the Xeta then! I LOVE mine... run them both in my BB and my Bantam. Both daily work drivers for me.
