This is a very nice, well machined drip tip. Goes excellent with a steam punk theme.

PROS
Excellent machining, seams nearly disappear when assembled. Very nice smooth threading. If the tube lengths were not such an issue, build quality would have had many more stars.
CONS
The whole mech is sized wrong. You can only use flat top batteries, button tops will not work. Even though it includes a kick tube, it is not long enough overall in any configuration to use a kick.
As promised, side by side of the Stainless and Brass. There are several major differeneces. 1 - Stainless comes in black UVO labeled box, brass comes in plain white throw away box. 2 - The bottom spring in the brass is much stronger than the stainless, it will hold the weight, but the SS collapses under an 18350+topper.Why you ask? The brass is not a spring - it's magnets. 3 - Bottom pin on brass is copper, SS has a brass bottom pin. (??)The pins are interchangeable, but the knurled retention nuts are not, they are threaded differently. 4 - The bottom cap delrin insulators are quite differnt and the brass one does not have an oring on it, which the ss one does, even though this seems rather silly - what does it need an oring for? The insulators are interchangeable. 5 - Stainless has a Vapor Wall logo and serial number, brass is just plain font. 6 - The main tube on the ss is approximately 45.5mm long, while the brass is 43.5mm, the other two tubes are the same on each at 35mm and 14mm - which is why I can't seem to use a kick in it, the tube should be at least 15mm, the nemesis clone kick tube is about 18.5mm - without the beauty ring. 7 - Both top caps have floating center pins, even though the brass has a slot it, however, the delrin insulators are threaded. Other than that, both top caps appear to be identical. A few more thoughts - -The magnets do hold the weight of an 18650 and full Kayfun, but just barely. -It seems this mech is destined for flat tops, button tops really just do not work on the brass. They work on the stainless but is also impossible to flush out the sections. -A kick is usable on stainless, but again, parts do not flush out. -It would also seem that whoever designed these clones has totally missed the idea behind adjustable pieces such as pins. Most of the parts will flush out in one configuration or another, but there is little to no adjustment left in the pins making it impossible to flush mount some devices such as my Kayfun and Fogger, while my Ithaka will flush mount, although not due to its adjustable center pin but only because the 510 threaded portion is shorter than the other two. -The top cap is not 100% sealed, but the orings on the center pins are pretty tight, and the threading on the insulators is pretty tight also. Visit the forums for this review with pictures. Please note I do not own an authentic Origin so I am not comparing to it, these are solely clone observations.
