Build quality Finnish separate fixed size tubes Button Overall design Threads
CONS
None to be found, after 2 weeks solid use
I have been using this mod for around 2 weeks, and in that time I have found it to be an all round solid performer, and a continual pleasure to own. The design is relatively simple, and aside for the grooved details on the tubing, it pretty much appears plain by comparison to many mods. Maybe there is some weight to the argument of mods being logoless after all, although I do like my logo's ;) This mod however does have a logo, placed neatly on the bottom, on the fire button. As mods go, this isn't going to set the world alight, but for a clone, the quality is outstanding. All 3 tubes and components have been machined extremely well, each with good smooth threading and of a decent thickness. In fact the overall package is almost flawless, and leaves you little to do once unpacked from its presentation box, other than to screw the top cap and switch to the tube corresponding to your chosen battery size, and attach whatever it is your vaping:) Fasttech recently have been sourcing some good quality clones, such as the silverback etc, and this definitely falls into that same category, when it comes down to quality. In terms of performance, this mod remains pretty solid. It ain't as hard hitting as many of your copper or brass mods, but for a stainless mod, it rates pretty high in my book, and I have many on which to make that comparison. The throw on the button is just about perfect, for me at least. It isn't too sloppy or too tense. The tension feels to be at a point ideally set between the two, and fires every time, due to how precise the button engages with the battery to make a contact. The downside for some, would be that the mod has no locking mechanism whatsoever, and you may feel this to be a deal breaker. However this isn't a carry around for me, and so presents no immediate issues. Would I choose to buy one again? Based on the experience I have had from this mod thus far, I would say most definitely. 10/10 for quality and performance. Throw in the fact of how cheap it is, and your laughing;) Get it bought!! ;)

A good vape for price A fuller flavour than most of the juices in this line up
CONS
None
I have begun to use fasttech more often for juices of late. Due to the scandal of some of the B+M prices, for such small quantities. I have tried a few of the Dekang liquids, of varying nic strengths, and all have been worth the purchase, given their price. However, the one issue I have normally had with the juices , and it aint really an issue I would consider detrimental to the juice line, is although they taste like the flavour they state them to be, they can sometimes be a little too subtle in flavour, against others of that variety. That said, I have had none that didn't more than satisfy, against the asking price. This is where the vanilla becomes more of a stand out juice, against others in the same range. It seems to hold a much fuller and richer flavour, which is very close to vanilla, but strangely enough can also taste on occasion, a little like a bakewell tart :) Nothing unpleasant or rancid in how this juice hits, and has made it's way on to my list of reorders. 10/10 for quantity and quality against price. For a 100ml of totally vapeable liquid, I couldn't give anything less

Engraving Quality Performance
CONS
None
I had bought this sometime ago, but never really got around to using it much. After some sorting out around the house, I stumbled across this little gem, and decided to give it another whirl. Quickly, I came to remember, why it was, that I decided to put it to one side to begin with. Unfortunately, this is not the most battery friendly of mods. In my instance, I was using flat top efests, and for some reason, I was always getting battery slack, in significant proportions. Anybody who knows the turtle ship, will tell you that you remove the slack, via a delrin spacer, connected to the switch, right around the outside of the switch contact. Unfortunately, even that was not cutting the mustard, in terms of the slack. Half the problem here was that you really need an atty with a good length pin, to reduce the amount of play coming from the top, and to then make up the difference via the switch. This procedure unfortunately isn't as user friendly as a Nemesis, even though the idea was somewhat crudely borrowed from that design. I say crudely, because although the principles remained the same, the execution was not. Sadly, even button top AW batteries were not eradicating the issues either. The issue in the main. was coming from the switch, due to the fact that even though I was adjusting the delrin to adequate proportions, it either wasn't taking out the slack, or it was, and then the delrin would slacken off of its own accord. I had all but given up on this, until the simplest of ideas sprang to mind. If it was the delrin causing much of the issue, how would I overcome that? Like I said, a simple fix. I just put a small O'ring beneath the delrin spacer, meaning that if it wanted to slacken off, it had no room to manoeuvre. With just that one simple fix, I had found a whole new love affair with the turtle ship. So much so, where I now wish to buy all other variations. It is not perhaps the hardest hitting of all my mods, but that means nothing to me, in terms of the pleasure this mod now brings to me. I have always loved this Mod, but now it has become a genuine pleasure to use. 10/10 is the only score I am prepared to throw at it. Fantastic! Get the stock in fasttech, I am about to order more ;)

A great juice for price
CONS
Nothing Displeasing to be a negative
I have tried a few tobacco flavours since vaping, and only a few have been worthy of a repurchase, and none have tasted too much like tobacco. For that reason, I had stuck pretty much to fruits. However, even after 8 months, I get the odd hankering for tobacco, but have zero intentions of ever going back down that rout. I decided to give this marlboro juice a try, and had pretty much no expectations of it being close to tobacco whatsoever. I was wrong on that account. The first few vapes, had all the notes of what I could remember marlboro to taste like. However, a few tanks into the liquid, and those notes started to slightly diminish, into something slightly less harsh, but at the same time pleasing. I guess tobacco had that effect on me too. The 1000th cigarette never tasted quite like the 1st, or at least the one where you decided you quite liked them. Not a bad juice atall, and has been an all day vape for me since I tried it. As an urge killer, it works as a 10/10 for me, but I am more inclined to reach for fruits given the choice. 10/10 for price Vs Flavour and quantity

Build Design and quality Easy to build and wick Adjustable airflow, with decent choices Single and dual coil options weight Juice capacity Flavoursome and the list goes on...
CONS
LOL, yeah right ;)
I decided to finally drop on this particular RDA, after some dithering, and some distractions by way of alternate purchases (Damn you Fasttech, too many choices!) ;) I perhaps have come to acquire this, a little late in the game, but I imagine few, if any, RDA's come close to this, in terms of design, quality and flavour. I have heard little in the way of negative comments, regarding the magma, and I certainly am in no mindset to set that ball rolling, because this thing couldn't disappoint me if it tried. It is easy to build and fill, and the performance is like nothing else I have tried. The flavour is on a par of many a decent rebuildable tank, and as far as dripping goes, this thing is more a case of fill, rather than drip. Making it a great RDA to slouch back and enjoy. The one I received, was extremely well made and packaged, and my only regret was that I didn't listen more to others opinions regarding this, and opted to buy more than the one. A mistake I will rectify, just as soon as fasttech get these back in stock (Damn you fasttech!) :P All in all 10/10 for value, flavour and build quality Vs Price. Well done Fasttech, you did it again! ;)
