Cotton everywhere

Cheap brittle chinese ceramic a major component of the factory coils

RBA positive dangling out in the open with nothing to help secure it except the main posi screw

Am I missing something or does this looks like crap?

Looks better than the V1 with those ridiculous heat sinks taking up space on the top cap. Seems like it will function about the same.
Joke's on you, this isn't actually a raffle.

Looks are second to performance to me. After saying that, I think it looks keen :D

I ordered one, and if it performs as well as it's predecessor I'll have at least two
unrealistic expectations lend to disappointment

Cotton looks fine really.

Brittleness is pretty much a key property of ceramic, particularly at low thicknesses. NASA could make it and it'd still be brittle with a 1mm wall thickness. Not sure what you were expecting, just don't ram any tools in there all hamfisted like and there'll be no problems. Treat it like glass.

The RBA positive being a floating joint shouldn't be an issue either as long as you've not broken something and it's literally dangling. Short of it actually being broken the worst it can do is short to negative and not give you a hit, but as long as you're doing maintenance it should resonably stay secured where you left it.

Because American ceramic is expensive, flexible and above all American, right? And what would the Chinese know about ceramics anyway?

at least it's got an RBA head. So its owners aren't forced to be noobs forever.

+1 and lol

I have tried an analogue the other day. The TH was OK but the taste was horrible, air flow was even worse and cloud-wise it was totally disappointing. Rating: 0.5/5 just for the TH. Not recommended.

Really? Looks like it could be one of the most functional tanks about at the moment to me.
Glass tank, decent capacity, not overly tall, easy to fill, able to access build without draining the tank, nice looking build deck with ample airflow, and they even threw in some pre made heads for the newbies/lazies. I thought it was gonna be rebuildable only and I was happy with that, but apparently the zephyrus coils are good so what's the harm in having a couple of free pre made heads sitting there?

Granted it's not the prettiest tank out there but at least it's a straight 22mm (unlike the billow v2) and functionality wise I think it's got everything else beat

Really? Are the Zephyrus coils compatible? They look to be about the same size, tho very different design. I just wanted to know if you actually read this somewhere or was just assuming.

My coils are sexy.
