PROS
fit finish price
CONS
reduces capacity (well, duh) not compatible with the short chimney KFL clone
Great. Just as good quality as the ones that go for 10x this price and if anything the finish on these is actually a better match for original parts. Reduces capacity, but then it's a nano kit... No issues with threading or the thread wobble sometimes reported on other kits. This kit is not compatible with the 'Svoemest' (no letter O at the end of the logo) KFL clone sold here without the use of a longer bottom chimney part as it shorts out inside. Worked fine on all other versions including a full size kayfun and originals.

Looks great Switch is lovely tiny voltage drop Light
CONS
All minor ~ Sharp edges on extension tube and top cap needs flat top 18350s threading on lock ring is loose
I've had the original and regretted letting it go, so was hoping this would be close to that. It really is a good clone, but mine has a couple of little issues. First thing I'd suggest is making sure the button is tight - mine was very loose and the throw was huge. a few turns while holding the firing pin and now its less than 1mm. The locking ring threads are very lose to the point that sometimes it dislocates and you have to fiddle with it to get it back on them. This may just be mine, but the threads look fine so it may be a sizing error. The edges on the top of the tube and the top part that is exposed in 500 or 650 mode are quite sharp. only took a minute to smooth them off, but worth mentioning. In 18350 mode most of my atomisers require a flat top 18350 for the telescoping section to fully close. it's marginal - maybe 0.2mm, but annoying. Good points - It looks fantastic.. Tubes all fit flush and the threading is great after a quick clean. The etching is done well and is fairly light so could be sanded off easily if you wanted to. The switch is smooth and requires virtually no effort to push even off centre. no misfires at all so far. The locking ring is nice (when working right) and only takes about 2 turns from open to locked. It is slightly over 22mm diameter, but the top cap has a slight chamfer that takes it down to 22mm so kayfun etc look right on it. the taifun and squape do leave a slight notch, but nothing too obvious. in use it's very nice and if you are after a simple telescoping mech, then this is worth a try. Very happy with this.

PROS
3 tubes looks good nicely finished
CONS
battery length can be a problem 18500 seems too short adjuster nut is very loose switch seems badly sized locking ring knurling is random
It's taken a while to get this working as intended. The spring is an issue for a lot of people as it is very weak, but you can stretch it out a little and that makes quite a bit of difference. The main issue I've noticed is that the button is quite a bit smaller than the recess it goes into. this leads to wobble on the switch firstly, and also can cause arcing from the button to the lock ring. Changing the spring for a better one has mostly stopped this, but it can still happen if you hit the button just the wrong way. The nut on the top adjuster is too big and wobbles around. this also means that it can turn when you screw the switch or the top cap on. Overall this is reasonable once you work the kinks out, but I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone that isn't into tweaking things.

PROS
performance looks design airflow drip tip
CONS
smallish post holes
This is just great. Everything about it makes it look and feel 5x the actual price. The air flow is great, the drip well is huge and the included DT is worth the asking price on it's own. Very impressed with the performance and getting great flavour and vapour from single and dual coil configurations. I managed to get dual coils using 0.32 (@0.3 ohms it's a proper could machine), but only a single with 0.4mm - the post holes could do with being slightly larger, but it's not a deal breaker. As a side note, the top section from the first TOBH clone sold on here fits into this and allows you to run the air holes at full width. anyone that likes dripping should grab one of these.

Finish Fit Weight
Again, just spot on. Finish is slightly metallic but not as sparkly as the originals, which is an improvement over those IMO. they do the job they are supposed to, and do it perfectly at a great price.
