Why with all the sexy high end mods that there's out there... THIS.
They could have done the tiny or the Komodo, or some Vicious ant...

Only SXK can genuinely answer why.

If it's not a version of what you would like to see, then I guess you won't consider buying one.

However, limited-run mods like this, regardless of what it's based upon and especially with an Evolv heartbeat, do tend to sell well for them.
It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

I would buy it if it was 2/3rd of the Price and the 2 Adapters were included.

You know, I've a feeling a lot of people would be in agreement with you on that one - and much the same with their previous offerings too.

However, it is what it is, and if one's wallet can stretch to it, it's a bloody good little mod.

What manner of idiot would buy a Vicious Ant? They've never been special (apart from the Valkyrie), just expensive.

Esselar, check into the Vicious Ant Club Omega...maybe that is "special" enough for you. it is a one of a kind design that is two plus years old and still no one has attempted to best it, despite the success it would have due to current market trends, AIOs, and such. I am just that manner of idiot, their products are head and shoulders above many high end, low end, and middle end mods. They don't always hit it out of the park, but they look good doing it. The 21700 dna75c Spade is one of the most coveted high end squonk mods of all time, and it ain't just because it's expensive.

Gekff and DJVillan, this is their attempt at an upscale mod, yes. It is a clone of a super rare, long gone mod, and much like their other Stickman clone, the SLGT, this is a Ferrari-named mod from a time past...probably when all of us were vaping Kanger products. If it has the quality of that mod, and the wood is anywhere close to photos, this mod should be considered a "high end" mod clone. Sxk I think is past cloning 3d printed mods, and I agree - whast's the point? I tend to favor them cloning older, out of print products, and I'm sure their lawyers and distributors are happy, too. Plus, we get a history lesson!

I'm buying it, because I know it will be small, ergonomic, and good. The price may go down a little, but they will be sold out quickly, I doubt they made 2500 units.

The wood is much darker than in FT's photos. I prefer the colour in FT's listing over the dark ones but these would be your preference.

I grabbed a few of the mentioned mods for a quick line up....VA spade 21700, SXK SL GT clone, Lizard Mods Evo21, Ultroner(sxk) Alieno, and VA Club/Omega. Do I feel that the SXK products deserve to be in this lineup? Hell yes I say, though I might get kicked out of a few FaceBook groups lol.

Keep in mind as well that SXK does it, and does it very well, for less than half price of many of the originals. Why does overpaying equate to "high end" to many people?

If I was asked, I would say that entire row of mods is high end.

Just one collector's opinion, however.

B.C. Rich calls this "spalted maple" I believe, looks very similar.
