Negative post -milled, press-fit, or other?
I loved my Magma v1. The Vengeance wasn't too bad, either. This looks good to me from a functionality point of view. What worries me, though, is one detail of its construction: does it have a press-fit negative post like the Magma v1?

Given the photos, it's hard to see how either post could be milled, but without seeing one in the flesh, we can't really know how either is installed. Fingers crossed it'll at least have a square insulator on the neg, but the pos is anyone's guess.

The pos post looks to be the same basic construction as that of a Velocity (see pic 3 - the pos has a ninety-degree 'spur' with a bathtub-shaped peek insulator). In the same pic I can see shadow around the base of the neg post, and it's a sharp ninety degree transition from side of post to deck, which suggests to me it's two pieces.

Enjoy the wait for a milled negative post. All clones currently are being made as what you see above.

i don't even know why i'm looking at this atty. My latest batch of juice works well with an undrilled IGO-L, ye of the super sucker airflow.

o yes, that's right: i can experiment with putting a cable wick right into the airhole, have the coil in there.

Yup that's a no go if it's press fit, my magma v1 1:1 clonr neg. post spins and annoys the crap out of me. Haven't used it in a long time.

I get that this is square and not round and most likely wouldn't have the same issue but still never going press fit again.
