+Looks super awesome +Great switch +Hits hard +adjusts on both ends to accomodate any battery size button top or flat top
CONS
-Etching of logos on Steel parts have a burned look - no locking ring
The only bad thing about this set is the burnt look of the etching on the stainless steel parts. I hit it with the buffing wheel and it cleaned it up real nice. Now its perfect. The Etchings on the gold part looks immaculate. This thing is so much nicer looking in person than in the Fasttech images. The brushed steel is very smooth unlike the normal rough brushed surfaces you may be accustomed to and the brass ends are gold plated and look very classy against the satin finished steel. I was looking for an affordable magnetic switch mod for when I am out and about, but now that I see how awesome the gold plating looks and the etched switch... I think I'll keep this one at home and pamper it cuz she's nice to look at. hits like a horse too. definitely worth the price

If you want your Neme to look like a Kayfun Hybrid, just get this conversion kit. Nothing to say except it works, it looks cool when installed, and its made of brass so it wont damage the threads on your kayfun.

+looks even cooler than the last Trident +Vapes just as good as the Original Trident +Easier to set up with the airflow control ring than the original Trident +Drip tip is very cool
CONS
-Copper pin on bottom sticks way out so it does not fit on any of my mods that do not have a floating pin -Some kind of enamel or paint was spilled on mine that I had to scrape off.
This works just as nice as my original Trident except the airflow control is much easier to set up now. It looks cool with the contrast between the polished finish and the sand blasted ring in the middle with the Trident logo on it. The Trident has been one of my favorite attys for a while now and this new version is just as great. I would have rated this perfect because it works great but I had to take off some points for build quality. One reason is that the bottom copper pin sticks out way too far making it hard to flush mount it on any mods that do not have a floating pin. The other problem is that it had some paint dripped on the side of it. I don't know if it was paint or maybe some loctite or adhesive that is used on the posts? Not sure, I just know that I had a hard time scraping it off. I ended up rubbing it off with fine sand paper and then polishing it to a shine with my buffing wheel. Looks perfect now, but all that work shouldn't be necessary. I'll post pics of the goop in the discussions for this product.

+looks awesome +love the drip tip and it fits the atty well (not too loose) +Nice big open airholes
CONS
-deep well makes setting coils difficult -nice deep deck but the air holes cut into it so be careful not to over drip. -Air holes in the base are not aligned with the coils like the images in the description.
I been really lucking out lately on Fasttech with RDAs. I have gotten some nice working bargains lately like the Trident version 2, the Gaia, and now the Omega. The Omega is not the best one in the bunch but it is the best bang for your buck. Most decent to excellent quality attys here start at about 13 to 14 dollars and up while the Omega is under 7 bucks. It vapes like a monster but it isn't without its problems. First, the deepness of the deck makes it difficult to build on. Normally in this situation, I would forgo the use of the post holes and capture the wire under the screw heads, however if you do this on the Omega then your coils are no where near the air holes. Speaking of the air holes...They are not lined up in front of the coils. I didn't notice that this makes the vape bad, but I suspect that the vape would be much better with the air holes positioned correctly. The air holes in the model shown on the website has the holes drilled correctly, but mine has the holes drilled directly in line with the center post. Again not a problem per se, but probably could be better. These are minor issues and for $6.66 its definitely a nice atty with plenty of good points. Its looks great, the build quality is very nice, the drip tip fits nice and is very open. The big air holes can be adjusted easily from tight to loose as the top cap spins effortlessly on the base (effortless does not mean loose, it will stay where you set it). I like it a lot and at this price I love it! I remember when the cheapest RDA you could find was a Smok Octopus for $8. Fast forward about a year later and you can get an Omega Clone for under $7 and it works like a champ.

-Improved performance -looks sharp -no more unsightly seams -Lighter weight than Stainless Steel -Effin RED!!!! hell yeah!
CONS
-need to be careful with threading ...softer metal -the threads on locking ring are a little crunchier than the stainless steel version.
First of all, I have loved my Nemesis for a long time. It has worked great for me for a for a while. However, Lately I have really been enjoying the trend towards mod kits with multiple sized tubes. I prefere the look of a seamless mod with no separations or beauty rings. When I saw these Anodized aluminum tubes I jumped on them. I have had other anodized mods such as the Bolt and the Aluminum Vamo and I love them. The anodized surface is hard and resistant to scratches and the colored anodizing has a cool frosty metallic shine. Even though the finish is super strong I still like to use a clear vinyl wrap on the mod for extra protection. I have found that when you use clear wrap on a red anodized mod you get what looks like a candy apple glossy finish that is bad ass. It looks great with my Polished finish Nemesis switch and top cap. It made my Nemesis look like a high performance sports car. And speaking of high performance...the Aluminum tubes have improved the conductivity of my mod when compared to the steel tubes. There are some things you need to be more careful of when using the aluminum tubes. The threading is much softer metal. Be sure that the threads on your switch and top cap are super clean before screwing them into the tube. Any dirt or grit that is on the threads can damage the threads or cause the switch to seize. if that happens it will be difficult to pull them apart without damaging that nice red finish. keeping threads clean improves conductivity too so it's never a bad idea to clean the threads before assembling the mod. Also notice that the threads for the Locking ring are anodized too. Cosmetically this makes sense and looks nicer on the mod when locked than having exposed aluminum threads, however if you are used to having that buttery smooth locking ring threading on your Nemesis, your probably not going to be as satisfied with these threads. I don't find this to be too bad of a trade off considering all the benefits of the new tubes, but everyone has their own opinions so it is worth mentioning.
