2 Telescopic tubes vs screwing tube difference?
Hello, is there any difference with this to the other SVD sold over her with one telescopic tube that size is changable by screwing instead of switching between two?

What sense does an extra tube like this offered one make?
(btw, I'm a newbie so don't pick on me. thnx)

that has an extra "extension" tube for 18650 battery, it's a bit larger than the regular tube.
you can use 18650 with either tube version just fine, the only difference is the little extra cover the extended tube provides.

the best deal is the $37 svd, you can use 18350-18650 with no problem.

the shorter tube is the same as the one sold in the $37 configuration. The longer tube actually is not better because it slighty wobbles. The short one has no wobble when usedwith 18650 and will accept same size batttery like the long one.

The SVD accepts stacked 18350's, which will only fit with the longer tube. That and the 2 iClears and 3 replacement heads sold me on this kit. No long tube=no stacked 18350's. I want all of the options.

If you take the express kit, add two iClear 30s and three extra coils, then the extension tube is basically free. I didn't feel like I needed the iClear 30s (not a huge fan of the iClear 16s, I use EVODs and MT3s's) and therefore I got the express kit.

If the express kit came with the long tube I'd have passed on the full kit. I'll be using stacked 18350's though.
