will the brass coating peel off in time?
Hi

I like the looks of the nemesis in brass (also considered the mixed one).

But I'm worried if the brass coating will peel off with time. (say from liquid spills etc).

Is it the case with this mod? Am I better off buying it in stainless steel? Tyvm

I had a bad experience with a mod (indulgence from back in the day), it peeled off like a piece of rubbish after 6 months.

Glad to hear it's solid brass though.

Would appreciate the input of someone who has had the mod for a while.

The mod you had was probably plated? Maybe that's why it peeled

I've had the brass one for a while, it wont peel ever!!

You gotta decide whether you prefer SS or brass. The brass hits a bit harder otherwise identical operation. Get both!! Brass makes yer hands stink but that's about the only negative) ;)

Well... Solid brass doesn't attract magnets. This sucker does, hence - it's plated.

You can do a google search for clear wrap for nemesis and find a company that sells a clear vinyl wrap for all the most popular apv's, including the Nemesis. Then you don't have to worry about color, finish or fingerprints. Most of the misc clear wraps are around 5 dollars plus shipping.

Switches that had contacts with magnets for a while do tend to have some magnetic properties. I have SS and Brass Nemmys that attracts magnets without batteries in them now but they didn't when they came. That doesn't mean its plated.
Try shaving of your plating until you expose some metal Dorian and post a pic to prove your self, we could have a giggle :)
