    One thing to add though, off all vendors in vaping no one gives the support Kennedy does on their devices.

    No only you have lifetime warranty but, at least me for being long time customer, I get free re-cerakoting and even free cerakoting on stuff that wasnt when originally bought.

    Just got back my roundhouse 20700, free cerakoted, free shipping AND they installed a new engraved button without even asking for it!

    As much as i like my Vapeamp gear, once i dropped a cerakoted descendant and it got scratched, they wouldnt take it for cerakoting even with me offering to pay for it. I HAD TO buy a new tube ($100 then)

    I got a Brass Goon I'm planning on running on mine, I'm planning on polishing them both up at the same time so they can patina up together :)

    have a v1/v1.5/25/LP goons, OG & clones, yet, never liked a single one :S, kept buying the next one hoping they'd get better

    The best flavor i get is from the LP though

    I
    I'm thinking maybe you're setting the coils at a less than optimum position? Or maybe the wrong size I.D.? I wanna help you figure this out, because the Goon 1.5 is one of my favorites for flavor of the more commonly produced RDAs.

    The v1.5 is actually my least favorite :(

    I just stopped trying to get a good build on those, except for the LP my coils are always 3mm, 0.8 OR 0.15ohm, position midway between the post and the outter wall and leaving about a third of the coils' bottom in front of the holes.

    Maybe I'm not building them well, will grant you that, but then again i have no issues with my kennedys, tricksters, petris, culverin, carnage, recoils, etc etc etc building the same coils and at the +/- same position (for the ones with side airflow)

    Good thing I got the Goon 25 for $36 in december :)

    Maybe I am a snob, sorry.
    I dont consider that mod close to a "high end mod". Def looks cool though. There's a huge spew about this mod and armageddon, on other websites.

    Im with you it’s not high end, more mid-end. I assume you are talking about the siege, it’s innovative though.

    Came to this thread from talking about Purge moss (which really are also not high end, just a tad expensive)

    Yeah purge is over priced for sure.
    I cant wait to see how much of a difference there is between my authentic viper versus a clone viper. I'm going to shit my pants if it really is 1:1

    Maybe I'll grab a siege because my dreamer mod isnt big but the viper is def big, way too big.

    Way I see it:
    - dreamer: best value on a chinese mod
    - Vindicator: best value on an american mod

    Vindicator is only +$40 on the dreamer, being made in the USA that's quite the achievement


    I do have 2 purge, I like them a lot, but I cant see they made in america is 3x ~ 4x more a vindicator (or Vapeamp descendant / outlaw for that matter)

    Bestia is smaller ... but that is not the issue. The Grip is a great mod too. Look - Purges are well made. I have and have had quite a few Armageddon mods. The threading and buttons are not as good as the Purge, Dragon or Complyfe or for really high end Pilaks. That said I'm not a huge fan of the Purge siodefires. I traded away two Slams and two Slims. The Grip and Siege fire better.

    Honestly, i don't care what people like or use. The idea is to give up analogs. Whatever works for you. Myself, I do not use clones. That's me. Should not stop others from using them. I've pared down my mech collection to just seven tubes - used to have 15-20. Lately gravitated towards large RTAs on regulated mods.

    Not talking about The Grip, was talking The Siege.

    Looking forward not to the Bestia but their upcoming one, The Animal, REAL CLEAN lines

    Im not hating on Purge, they are well made yes, so are a lot other american and chinese ones. I have two and wouldnt mind a third at some point.

    I still believe they are a $50 ~ $100 overpriced, based on model.

    On the Pilak, I just cant stand the looks of them. Hate the infantile engravings on the body. But that's my personal taste

    Cerakoted my Vortex today in a distressed antique white with grey accents and a shimmer blue along the ridges of the machining.

    Well I couldn't resist, just got the new Hari Dos RDA. Oh she's a wonderful exquisite work of art and of course perfect match for my Pilak's! [​IMG]

    Dude that is nice. Not to diminish the beauty of the mod but that RDA is freaking awesome. Love the King engraving and highly polished drip tip.

    Trust me when I say pictures do nothing. The workmanship is beyond anything I own or seen. 2JNT are IMO the best crafted out there.

    Yeah I got it direct from them, Corazon is very easy to work with. I don't think any of them are available yet to resellers, could be wrong but I haven't seen them yet. It really is an awesome RDA. All pure silver other than the grub screws, so you really need to be careful tightening them down.

    You need one!
    Seriously if you want one join the 2JNT Group, contact Corazon Mariano and she'll set you up with one. It's a small family owned operation out of the Philippines and seriously the best Vape products made. All handmade from a family operation n. IMO the absolute best available period, pricy but so worth it, not like the over priced hype of Purge ;)
