Solid SS construction Excellent design
CONS
None
Form and function design is a very subjective evaluation, but for me the SVD is nearly perfect. This my second SVD purchase from FastTech. The only difference with my first SVD is the tactile response of the fire button. It's a little hard to describe, but it definitely feels different. However, that's a minor issue and I'm completely happy with this device. I highly recommend the iTaste SVD.

Just big enough for my application Sturdy construction
CONS
Would have been nice to include 4 screws
This is not a heavily constructed project box, but certainly sturdy enough for most uses. I bought 2 of these to build a couple wire welders, using disposable camera flash boards, for welding together res/no-res wire. It's going to be a tight fit, but these should work fine. I've already thought of a couple more projects these can be used for and won't hesitate to order more when needed. Only wish FastTech offered a broader offering of box sizes.

Seems to hold together OK while wrapping
CONS
Yuck
OK, so I've always used kanthal wire and never used nichrome before. These, however, looked long enough to work for the Oddy and would save me the trouble of having to twist together my res/no-res wire, so I placed the order. When they arrived I noticed right away that the nichrome res portion is nearly black, which I assume is due to pre-oxidation. I hit it with a torch anyway and built my coil using organic cotton. The good news is that the wire is long enough for the Oddy, but after 2 vapes I wanted to throw-up. I've never tasted anything so nasty in 6 years of vaping. I rebuild with kanthal and everything is back to normal. Since I've never used nichrome before, I can't speak to whether the bad taste is normal with this wire. However, because nichrome is used by so many without complaint, I'm going to assume that it isn't. If that's true, then there is something about these particular pre-made wires that's giving this taste. Even if the bad taste was temporary, there was no way I could vape on it long enough to find out. Unfortunately, I have another pack of 1.8ohm coming in another order, which will immediately go into the trash upon receipt.

Seems to be well built Does exactly what it is designed to do
CONS
Need a strong magnifier to see the settings markers
This is the only kick that I own, so I can't compare to other 'brand' kicks. However, I can't imagine the more expensive kicks working any differently or better. This is a rather simple device. Set the wattage you want, install and vape. I've used this in both my Sentinel M16 and Private V2 without a hitch, although it is a very tight fit in the V2. I usually run 11 watts on my ZMax and SVD, so that's what the kick is set at and it's run now for several days without any problem. We'll just have to wait and see what the long term reliability is. At this point, I would highly recommend.

Well, damn! I just received this and the price has already been lowered a dollar. Anyway, it arrived with a crack, which I fixed with crazy glue. It's noticeable, but certainly not worth the time and trouble to send back or get a replacement. I suspect this is going to be the most significant issue with all of the acrylic stands. Since FT ships everything in a padded envelope, instead of a box, many (if not most) of these stands are going to get broken in transit, especially the larger ones. Just be aware that's the risk you take when ordering. As for the stand itself, it's exactly what you would expect from the picture. Nothing else to really say about it.
