More important to many users here is BP's "Bushido" squonk, soon to be released. It's a mech, so some may be put off by that...

nice looking gadget for those without extra mods lying about, I suppose...



I have many mods, but none offer a more stable platform to build on than one designed and dedicated to the task IMO.. I've enjoyed using them since they first came widely available. If one thinks the Futon is expensive, I'm pretty sure one of the first ones out (Burning Tab Master?) years ago was a couple hundred bucks, and also plastic (or 3D printed) IIRC.

Yeah, that Friday Morning 3D-printed original was just a ridiculous price (in keeping with everything else Friday Morning made). The first Coil Master unit was an unapologetic direct copy (that seemed to have been moulded off of the Friday Morning tab, as it had layer lines despite being injection moulded). There are times I think to myself, "you know, I'd almost feel sorry for the inventors, except that they've done things the slowest and most expensive way they could think of and are restricting the product to waiting lists on closed groups instead of selling a bajillion of them on the mass market and making real money, so they're idiots who can go know themselves biblically."

LoL! After looking around briefly, it does appear that The Friday Morning felt copied:

Of course it was a clone! You didn't think a non-vaper came up with that idea, did you? That's where everybody makes mistakes when talking about manufacturers. You are paying for the idea and the device often, because...well, China just makes stuff. They are 9 months ahead of the world in manufacturing, just not design. If money is an issue for you, and the product is solid, just wait a few months for some Chinese manu to reverse engineer a quality clone of that product. Then everyone can be happy, the cash-rich who seed these projects and push boundaries, and the low-level consumer who simply wants a working product for the near future.

Wow, FT is way behind the curve with the Tabs! The Mission T was the last I remember and grabbed a couple while they were here. The other I have is now discontinued as well.
