  1. Smoking To Vaping?

    I like the Pico 25. Yes, it has the plastic bit, but that doesn't bother me too much. It doesn't feel quite as solid as the Pico, but near enough. The RDAs are pretty lightweight, so overall the combo feels lighter, but I'm used to the Skyline and Kayfun on the Pico which are pretty heavy. Fire button and screen on the Pico 25 are a little bigger, which is an improvement. Overall I'd say the Pico 25 is a good solution for bigger tanks.

    Dragging this thread up out of the depths to show a few new devices I've been trying out recently. A few months ago, I decided to try out a dripper, aka RDA. I'd read about these on reddit and thought I was ready to try a few more powerful coils than I can mount in my tanks. First up was a Pharoah: Pharaoh by wotsch2, on Flickr It took me a while to get the coil right, but once I did then it was a bit of a revelation. After some further reading, I grabbed a Pulse 22 off eBay: Pulse 22 by wotsch2, on Flickr Nice, compact device, especially on a Pico mod, and a better flavour than the Pharoah. Finally, I got a CSMNT, which is the best of the bunch: CSMNT by wotsch2, on Flickr So far, I've only been building single coils: CSMNT by wotsch2, on Flickr The next step, over the Christmas break, is to try a dual coil build on the CSMNT. These aren't devices for out and about, as they're too impractical, but for an evening at home they're great. Cheers, -wotsch

    None of which take a Nautilus coil though

    Glad it got to you in the end.

    Interesting looking device. Not heard of it before. Pocket friendly by the look of it.

    Latest addition and the last device I'll be getting for quite a while: ESG Skyline by wotsch2, on Flickr
  7. Add Your Latest USSR Editions

    Not really a USSR edition, but posting here nevertheless. Thanks to @Kutusov and the Bay, here's something I've been waiting to get my hands on for a long time: Vostok Amphibia 1967 by wotsch2, on Flickr Much chuffed! (Not going to be modding this one ) Cheers, -wotsch

    Yes, it's much prettier. Re. drip tip: That's the only disadvantage I can see so far. No 510 drip tip. But so far I don't mind the one on it. I've got quite used to the draw. so much so, that I've got to the point of opening up the Kayfun some more. But many thanks for the offer! I see why they did this. The chimney screws on to the drip tip right at the upper opening. Keeps the whole thing more compact that way, as it's only as long as the chimney itself. But that does mean that the bore is exactly the same as the chimney bore.

    Here's the Hussar with the Steam Tuners tank: Hussar with Steam Tuners tank by wotsch2, on Flickr Hussar with Steam Tuners tank by wotsch2, on Flickr Makes the whole thing more compact and looks great, much better than the yellowy original tank.

    I did contact them and they're sending me some new o-rings. Perhaps the ones with it were too thick, we'll see. Also, I've ordered a Steam Tuners tank...: http://www.vapstor.fr/en/steam-tuners/964-hussar-tower-tank.html Oh dear...

    That's what I thought, but I have the top screwed on only just enough to seal and it's still very tight. Will keep experimenting with it. As it is, it's a bit of a pain to fill and I don't want to open the top cap with the juice flow open cos it'll leak through.
  12. Smoking To Vaping?

    Having mastered the K5, I found the Hussar just as easy to build. At first, I found the juice flow control to be extremely tight, independently of how tight I screwed the top on. Swapping the o-ring solved that. Even with that fixed, I'd say the K5 juice control is easier to use and the K5 is easier to fill. The finish on the K5 is better, seems to be more solid. On the Knight v2 box mod, the K5 is significantly heavier than the Hussar on a Pico, unsurprisingly. The Hussar is significantly shorter but Hussar+Pico is longer than K5+Knight. Don't like the look of the Hussar on the Knight nor the K5 on the Pico, so didn't compare the feel of them the other way around. I really like the taste on the Hussar, fuller and more intense than the K5, but I like the K5 draw better on the two dot setting. All in all, they are both great and I don't regret forking out for the Hussar at all. Give me a couple of weeks and I might be able to express a preference and say which one I would keep if I had to choose one.

    Here's the Hussar. Hussar by wotsch2, on Flickr Very tasty.
  14. Smoking To Vaping?

    I'd seen them but they're sold out and I couldn't find anyone else in Germany with stock so I ordered from a French online shop. Too late to email them now, they've already notified me it's packed up and off to shipping. I'll just have to wait and see. A dual coil deck wouldn't be so bad as I don't have one yet and could always order the single coil deck later if I don't get on with it. Edit: Just had another look at the website and it's the single coil deck. Somehow I read past the bit that says clearly in bold text "single coil deck". Must be getting old... It's a journey, just like watches...

    I've now (mis)spent a good couple of hours this afternoon watching youtube reviews and thinking whether to wait for the skyline to be available again. That's the absolute wanna-have-this device as I'm a sucker for engineering finesse. But, as it's not clear when the skyline will be available again, and the hussar is also getting great reviews, I've gone for it and ordered one with the ultem standard sized tank and a radiator top cap. Not 100% clear which deck is coming with it from the online shop, the description seems to suggest both. Looking forward to giving it a go.
