    Why did I wait so long?

    I just set up and wicked my new Pico Squeeze and I am in vaping heaven.

    Granted, it's nothing fancy, but I wicked it myself, and the flavor is out of this world. I specifically used a flavor I was unimpressed with in my tanks to see if it made a difference. It's a bare whiff in a tank, and I feel like I have almonds stuffed up my nose with the Squeeze.

    I'm such a happy girl right now. Tonight...wrapping by first RDTA coils.

    Be careful..the Squeeze is a gateway squonker. Next thing you know, you'll have multiple squonkers, each with different RDAs. ;)

    welcome to the dark side. I got my first mech squonker late last year and that is the only way I vape now. pulse mechs are out of rotation now due to the leaky bottles and 510s. my athena mech is still in the rotation along with 2 x RSQ and 2 x new Pulse 80w's. I now have boxes of non squonk mods and tanks collecting dust (and some tanks I still need to clean from last fall lol).

    I'm still pico-squonkless, but.. Man, I would love to get a single-cell alternative to the Gbox.

    Nah, the aforementioned Pico-Squonk is unregulated. Everyone seems to wet themselves over it. I've seen a preview of the v2 and it looks interesting, but I suspect the price will be laughable.

    Hmm.. Well, brainfart-idea aside, the DS-style mechanical still looks interesting - my sole issue would be "who carries the goddamned replacement switch-assembly"? That switch issue is the biggest thing on mechanicals other than the 510 itself: folks can fake/cobble almost any other solution to failure.

    My Pico hasn't seen much use since my Anita came in. It's been too long since I used mechs and the voltage drop-off on the Pico bothers me more than I thought it would. I've gotten too used to regulated/TC.

    I've seen about $60 suggested for the Squeeze2/Coral2 kit. Being the cheap [email protected][email protected] that I am, I think I may try doing some 3D print boxes to make my old VTC Mini or iStick30 into regulated squonkers.

    Does it well enough for me. I don't have any DNA mods, but it seems to work as well as my regular Pico, VTC mini, or Movkin Disguiser. It seems to be consistent while firing and doesn't change between uses (unlike my VTC or Pico).

    Of course, I'm vaping less than 20 Watts with simple spaced SS316 coils between 0.6 and 0.7 Ohms so I may not be the typical squonker.

    I too started my squonk life with a pico and it changed the way I vape. I'm still a newborn compared to many here, but my one pico squeeze didn't stay lonely very long. It quickly been joined by 8 other. There is also a Pulse 80w in the near future. Hopefully ordered tonight with another Recurve RDA if I can get permission from the boss. Father's day is coming up.

    Eh. Not quite wet myself over the Pico Squeeze. Yes, I like it fine enough. I might even buy another or few. Think affinity for it lies in the ergonomic design & easily pushed push fire button. It seems fairly well built & durable, so far. It's smaller than the CopperVapes.

    Would I say it could replace the CopperVape? That's an eh, it would depend question. If I'd gotten Pico Squeeze first, I might have been happy enough to not look at a CopperVape. That was the reverse in my case though, got a CopperVape first and they got my heart so to speak.

    * inconspicuously hides away three or four mods and half a dozen different RDA * Any such idea is purely unfounded. Simply because a person buys one squonking mod, does not imply they'll become addicted to squonking, nope, in no way shape or form. You have no proof of any such thing, even if all those squonking mods you're pulling out of my hiding stash there have my DNA on them, or even if you have video surveillance of me tempting Liberace into squonking. Nope, squonking is not addicting. Just ask @JuicyLucy or @The Cromwell.

    I got a pico and wow, changed the way I vape. Then got a rsq and now thinking of getting a luxotic sjnce I like how it looks.

    May be selling my non squonk mods shortly.

    My first squonk was a Therion BF, then I got a Gbox, then a Pulse 80w. Now I'm waiting for a Furyan. Nope...not addicting at all

    haha yep. I had been vaping mostly rta for 2.5 yrs. got my athena mech last october or november. then 2 pulse mech boxes, then 2 rsq, and recently 2 pulse 80w boxes and a 3rd warranty replacement pulse 80w frame for a bad 510. The 2 pulse mech boxes are getting put away (leaky bottles and leaky 510s) but all the rest are on my desk in rotation. All my non squonk devices are put away.

    Non-Squonk:
    I've a Smok M22, two old Itatze sticks.

    Squonking:
    Got two Reo Grand clones.
    A silver Coppervape in disrepair.
    Another silver Copper in fine shape. It's topped with a Gorge presently, SS top cap.
    A well patina-ed brass Coppervape. It wears the brass based Wasp Nano with the pee color plastic top cap for a hat.
    Got one Pico Squeeze. It has the SS based Wasp Nano, again that pee colored plastic/Ultem i believe it is, as a hat.
    I had one of those Mr. Owl Terminator squonkers just to try the idea out, had being the big optimal word. It became pure junk rather quickly and rightly so as it seemed rather unsafe in general terms.

    RDAs:

    Well the two Wasps
    Two velocity style clones
    Two regular 24 mm wide Goons
    A Goon 150 or whatever they're calling the funky looking one. (Not too keen on how the afc on it does.)
    Two workings of Goon LPs
    A seldom used Hasthur clone
    A Gorge
    A ChiNaRDA (Almost forgot a favorite, curse me.)
    The remaining Mr. Owl RDA
    The rda that came with the silver Coppervape

    I had use of a SmokTech Genny type, but passed it back to who had gifted it tome for a few bucks. Hilariously they couldn't part with it. I liked it too but ah well, I can find others to like just the same or better.

    Had an O 16, Piffed it off as 16mm deck at the time was simply to taxing for me to bother building on. (Might be reconsidering that but I'll find another rda to look into)

    Misc:

    4-6 of the Tdux 2/3s and one or two ARO tanks (No longer used but kept back just in case)
    Two of the Mark 10 type kits (Not really used but see above)

    Nope, I'm no squonker, not t'all. :shades::p:popcorn: :cloud::cloud::cloud::cloud:

    Juice Pref:

    Unflavored at 18mg per ml Nicotine / Either 40PG/60VG or Max VG base.

    If I want any flavorings, I'll add in our kitchen's flavorings or find something good but cheap online and shake n vape usually going no more than 10-20% flavoring out of a 10/8 ml bottle. If i like it, will keep running it through, if not rinse out the bottle and back to my base.
