    Has this peaked anyone else’s interest?

    I’ve been considering buying a single 21700 mech mod. I’ve had great luck with Vandy Vapes overall quality, so I might preorder one of these if the price isn’t too close to the Dreamers.

    They had them at the Expo in Birmingham. Didn't get to use it but handled it, I have the Dreamer though and prefer the feel of it and it's a great performer. Almost bought another one today in white. Plus you can get the extension tube with it and run in series [​IMG]

    I plan on picking up one, I'm a fan of the Bogan so I want to support him. It also looks to be a good good design.

    If you're looking for a good Tube you seriously can't beat the Vindicator, best bang for your buck IMO.

    I'm a huge fan of the Bogan. Can't wait til this bad boy comes out. Release date i believe is Dec.10th. Price doesn't look too bad. Some sites are showing the black/copper for $61.97 and the SS for $55.26, and obviously that's for the kit. Which IMO is a great price. Kinda wanna sit back and wait though. Watch a few reviews first. But just from the looks of it, its real appealing. Love how you can line up the logos. Anyway, now we wait.

    Yep, I did the same.

    That foul mouthed Bogan is one of the very few reviewers I trust and he does a great job reviewing Mech's, he has yet to lead me astray w/ regards to Mech's (or anything else for that matter).

    I totally agree, he has a genuine vibe about him that you don’t get from a lot of reviewers. When I first started watching his videos a few months ago my wife was like what are you watching, now she just laughs at the profanity. I’d have a soda with him for sure.

    In spite of his overuse of off-color vocabulary, that boy has a superb command of the English language.

    For those of you who have already received this mech, do any of you have 'hot button' issues, but with the movable sleeve? Runnin the usual build. .09 with a 30t. I've never had this issue with any other mechs i own. Same build n all. Anyway it's not a big issue but just wonderin if anyone else is experiencing this.

    if you mean the button getting hot, then no. I haven't at all, but I rarely take more than a couple hits at a time anyway.

    Anybody with this tube mech who thinks the magnets and spring are too stiff, go to Home Depot and buy this package of 84 springs for $4:63 including tax. Inside you will find 4 of these SS springs that are PERFECT for this mod and I'm sure many others. Trust me. You'll thank me for this one.

    I dug through the box in the store and found them before I bought it.

    He doesn't take any funds, coupons or any of that shit, he's only funded through Patreon like Mooch. I support both and for me it's worth a couple of bucks every month.

    Anyway for the price this is a decent tube and I do like the design. The machining is good and it's built well, not as well as like a Kennedy but then it's also 1/2 the price so IMO it's a good deal. The button is a bit stiffer than what I prefer so I'll be replacing the magnets with a pure Silver Spring. I Vape around 0.11Ω and the button does get a tad warm, not a hot button but I do feel a tad warm. So a pure Silver Spring should do the trick, I just got to compare it with my other tubes to get the right size and I'll be ordering a couple.

    The included spring is a bit lighter than the magnets, but still pretty stiff. I didn't hate it and I got used to it, but when I got a couple Panzer clones, I liked the springs in those much better so I tried one in the Bonza and it worked great. I took it with me to Home Depot and those ones I mentioned are pretty much identical.

    He is indeed an honest reviewer and mechs are what he knows best. I appreciate the fact that he went for this mainstream design. I really love mine, but it's not as good as that copper Panzer. But it wasn't supposed to be.

    Just pulled out the pure silver spring out of my VCM V2, perfect throw and no issues at all with any warm button. I have a medium tension spring, perfect. If you want to know where I get my pure silver contacts and springs PM me.
