2mm is still understandable .. but 1.5mm ID coil .. Ooh baby! Better wrap the cotton around the coil instead of pushing through it :D

It reminds me of the days of the nano coils, not-too-distant past isn't it?
ok, it date back to the stone age :D

Incidentally, any news about the Exo version of this Speed Rev ?
I'd better hurry, i already missed the Viper (Hellfire 14)

Strike 18 is better than the Speed Revo .. used both and love the Strike waaaaaaaaay more than this.

i prefer the speed rev over the strike (18) :P.
the strike leaks easily if oversquonked (which is easy because the chamber is tiny).

both excellent flavour though

I have both (YFTK, both of them, and both in 18mm. and 14mm. size) and a bunch of the cheap SpeedRevos too.

I love both of them, but, IMHO, the Strike is way superior with very aromatic and sweetened tobaccos (English mixtures, Black Cavendish, vanilla/caramel tobaccos, etc.) while the SpeedRevo wins by far with dark and strong tobaccos, especially the fire cured type (Kentucky, Kentucky+Latakia cigar blends, etc.).

About the "mistery rod":
It's what we could call a "coil placement" rod.
Let's start saying that, at least here in Italy (where the original SR is made, and where almost every BF vaper has it, original or "styled"), 99% of people will use a 2mm. I.D. coil on it and, more often than not, with the "side placed coil" having the positive set with the usual 2,5-3mm. gap between the heads of the screws.

The "odd" rod is tucked inside the already made coil while it still has long and uncut legs, then the whole coil+rod contraption it is placed flat on the atom's base, with the rod touching its edge and, at the same time, touching the side of (both) those wide headed coil screws.
Then, you will pull the coil's legs around the screws and tighten the screws.

You should end ups having a perfectly horizontal coil (and not slightly tilted, as often happens when you use multiple diameter coil rods, unless you correct it), at the right height, with the shortest possible legs.
That's the "proper" coil position as envisioned from the original Speed Revolution producer.

(I actually beg to differ from the "only and proper" coil position, leaving my coils' legs just 1mm. longer and having, thus, the coil slighlty closer to the air hole side).
