It's light, it's made out of (presumably anodized) 6k aluminum, it has what is by all accounts a decent to good tier board and it's well priced to boot. As a proud member of both the cheapskate and the anti-zinc alloy gang it almost seems too good to be true. So, what's the catch?

Whats the difference between this one, the X and the regular dual battery GEN that I have?

SKU 9699104

^ ^ ^ Best mod I have purchased in a long time. Even prefer it to my SX Mini SL class.
Love the vape on it. Reminds of of early Sigelei 100w type of vape.

Construction and materials. This one is machined out of 6061 aluminum. Previous iterations were die cast from PC, given a rubber coating and painted from what I can gather from the FT product page (not zinc alloy after all). Other than that I believe they are pretty much the same.

I'd have to see/feel it then but this one is 2g heavier than the one I have so barely noticeable.


That said, I don't care for mine in TC and use it in wattage.

This one is $15 more than the one I have. Not sure its worth the extra $15, at least as far as one can tell from the pictures used here.



Edit: No, sorry I only paid $38 for mine so this, today, is $18 or so dollars more. I see FT is asking $5+ more today for it then I paid.

If you're not hard on your mods or rotate a bunch of them I wouldn't worry about it. I'm a klutz and tend to wear mine down really quick so I'd rather pay a bit more for something of higher quality.

This one should be rather similar to the Sigelei 100, the classic Hana Mods, the Lost Vape Esquare and the Sbody Macro construction vise to give you a frame of reference.

for something of higher quality.




That is what I am trying to determine. Honestly, I couldn't tell one mod from another as to what its made of. Just not the way I think.
I either like it or I don't.

Hence, that its aluminum, against my original GEN means nothing to me. I would have to feel and see it.

Sigelei 100w.
Cant explain why but I get the same sort of creamy like Vape with the Gen that I did with the Sigelei.
Not saying that because of its shape.
That I don't get with a couple of Aegis mods I have.


In short, I would be willing to try it out if its that better a material.

Maybe because they think it's gonna be a rattlesnaker.
Vaper buys pod system, asks for a 510 adapter. LOL for days

By rattlesnake I think he means the noticeable on/off effect (rattle) of low frequency Pulse Width Modulation. The early Vamo had this effect, I hated it and stayed with mechanical mods.

Correct. It was meant as a joke when I saw this marketing image. I doubt it will rattlesnake. But that's what immediately came to mind when I read it. Never know some people might think that.

Seems like they may have missed the mark with the 0.91" OLED screen that looks like an 80's calculator. It looks pretty quality other than that.
At no point in Trump's rambling, incoherent 1 term presidency was there anything close to what could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the country is now dumber for having experienced it.
