Looks good! Easy to build on Can do single or dual coils No leaks
CONS
If you want super airy flow, this isn't for you.
As soon as I replaced the restrictive {small inside diameter} driptip with a Derringer style tip, all is spot on. I put this on a brass Coppervape and it works excellent. Enough airflow to support a .32 ohm dual coil build, no problem. It has been trouble free and it never EVER leaks as the top flow setup is pretty clever. It takes air from up high but channels it down before it goes straight at or slightly below the coils which is ideal IMO. I can see buying more. :-)

Solid {meaning strong} Low profile with the correct atty Works excellent. SO much less top heavy than a tube mech!
CONS
Solid {meaning heavy!} Could be a bit more minimalistic....
I immediately screwed in a Subtank Mini and popped in a charged 25R upside down and BAM, she vapes right out of the box. :-D -I then tweaked the positive pin to get the air vents where I wanted them to be- on either side, symmetrically. No problem. I have seen reviews that mention some voltage drop from the batt spring..... I do not notice this with the pre-built .5 ohm Kanger coils. This guy is pretty heavy. But it feels SO solid in your hand. The stainless top and bottom are the root cause of this mass. But it really adds to the perception of quality. The fit and finish on mine seem excellent- I had no scratches or mars on the finish. Looks great! It seems to me that a few mm could have been shaved off of the designed height, IMO, but still a great design. So I doubt if I will ever replace the spring with a screw as I have heard about. Works great. Hits as hard as a SMPL with the same tank for me. Whenever the fire button gets a little crunchy, I simply take the switch apart and clean everything up. Then it works smooth as can be, even if you push the side of the button. Smart design. So in summary, for the money, this little mod kicks ass. HIGHLY recommended. :-)

Small Lightweight Easy to build Super soft bottle
CONS
Bizarre safety switch No room for dual coils
This works excellent right out of the box. With only single coil option, I used 316L 24 gauge 3.5 mm @ 5 turns which specs out at .31 ohm. Perfect for me. Atty is a bit restrictive but those who like restricted lung hits will love this, like the O-atty. The bottle is ridiculously soft, maybe overly so. But it has not leaked so far. For the money, this rocks. All for pocket change. I got the blue one too, with the same results. Kickass!

Looks great Solid Nice button action Easy to build on
CONS
Not crazy about the immense drip tip.
Works excellent, hits very, very hard for my build I made. Nothing bad to report here. I only wish there was an option for a smaller driptip; I will rig something up in the future. I really appreciate the political incorrectness of the engraving, which is top notch in quality. Looks great and functions perfectly! Hell YEA.

Arrived nice and clean 510 drip tip Two post design 3mm positive pin simple to drill
CONS
Did not come with BF pin- had to drill it myself.
Even though it does not have a flat deck floor like a Stumpy, it still works extremely well for bottom feeding. Drains well enough. Never had any leaks anywhere. The top cap design make it simple to remove it. The 3mm screw is simple to drill for bottom feeding. I prefer Derringer drip tips and those fit nice on this. Plenty of airflow for me- I run it wide open. It does not whistle in any way, shape or form. Looks good on top of a Reo Grand LP. I consider this an acceptable replacement for The Stumpy which seems to be gone forever.
