NO POST HOLES
This is the third IGO-W I've had from FT. This one appears to be identical to SKU 1939901, SKU 1939900, SKU 1939903, SKU 1939902 other than colour. I thought before I bought it that it was going to be the same as SKU 1624300 which doesn't come with a drip tip. That was my favourite one I've had, unfortunately, it's out of stock and has been for a while. So, I got this one thinking it would be the same with the addition of a slightly goofy DT. Much to my surprise and dismay upon receiving it I discovered that there are no post holes on this model. If you look at the pictures, the crappy silica wicked build that comes in it completely obscures this fact. I don't think this was intentionally deceptive, but I could see others making the same mistake.

If you look at the photo, it does look like the wire might be wrapped around the screws. This is why we keep asking FT to take builds off before they photograph atties.

It is hard to tell by the pic, i've got a few old dripper's that don't have the hole's in the post's (or 1's with tiny hole's) it is a bit different to rebuild them lol

I also liked SKU 1624300 the best, it's a shame it's not available.....I would buy a couple more to keep in my stock-pile :)

Worst is when (I'm looking at you, Stillare Storm Styled) there are no post holes, and the provided screws are rounded on the bottom such that they actively push the wire away when attempting to tighten. "Cursing up a storm" has taken on a new meaning for me.

I was poisoned against UD after buying what is quite possibly the most poorly designed dripper in history - the W2

SKU 1696601
