    Then there's the Pisces T (or the Kylin clone). A couple of hairs shorter than the K101... with 18490 battery installed, vs 18350 in the K101.

    Kinda off topic but the items listed on Fasttech are all clones right? They have the named brand mods listed for a fraction of the cost.

Perferably from fasttech as I have store credit I need to use... Thanks for any insight!
    I used to use a vamo and wanted something mechanical and smaller. I went with a nemesis clone. In 350 mode with a patriot RDA and drip tip, it's the size of my vamo in 350 mode alone.

    The Zenesis DX350 is one tiny little thing.

    Ive got my IGO-L sitting on top of it right now, and the whole setup is still shorter than a vamo in 350mode. The mod alone, compared to a Vamo V3 in 350 mode, is about as tall as the two +/- buttons. Like I said, its a short little guy.

    And becauses its Z2 threaded, anything else from the entire Zen2 line will fit. Decide you want to try out a genesis hybrid? Pick up an Atty. Or the Carto Tank, or a bigger battery tube.. Anything and everything in the Z2 line, fits anything and everything in the Z2 line.

    The vamo is huge, even for a VV/VW mod it's tall. Almost any mech will be shorter. The only cheap mech that I have that was decent was the magneto, which while not the smallest is smaller than a vamo, I'd say a magneto v2. If your budget was higher there are a lot of small mechs.

    Agree, agree, agree and agree lol.

    Almost every tube mech comes with an 18350 tube, either included or available seperately. Size is completely dependant upon each device.

    As I already suggested, the Zenesis2 DX350 is a short little mod. For me, any shorter would be bad, itd be uncomfortable. The DX350 is right on the line of being too short, but just enough that its still comfortable to use. And of course, down the road you can add the carto tank or genesis atty and turn it into a hybrid. I have a Zenesis Altus that I sometime take the atty and put on the Dx350 tube.. The colors dont match because gun metal and brass, but if I used it like that all the time I could just get the right color top cap or body tube. I know I sound like a fanboy for Zenesis, but the quality of these device is beyond what you expect, and the versatility because of the common threading on all the possible parts makes it a great system to get into.

    In the Hybrid department, there is the Noble 1. An aggressively priced genesis hybrid which uses an 18350 battery, it is quite small, and an overall nice mod to boot. Comes in Stainless and Black.

    My only thing with the zenesis is price, I'd rather spend an extra $20 and get a Paps 2.5. The 20x1 threading it uses works for a ton of switches, caps and atty's. I just think the zens should be a little cheaper. In place of a zen, I'd probably get a steam monkey 18350 with the 1.1 switch. Same price, same thread but brass and the new switch takes the rattle out.

    As for size, I agree there is too small. I have a mod that is 59mm in 18350 and 72mm in 18490, I like the feel of the 18490 size better and 18490's have 400 mah and 10amps on 18350's...so I only use the 18350 when I need something tiny. For reference, the Zen Dx 18350 is about 67mm.
