    The biggest regret I have for ordering from FT is that I did it just before the holidays. It wasn't bad enough I got dinged for Christmas, now I have to get through New Years also.

    Once everything goes through, I'm going to put together a definitive step by step description of the shipping steps (at least for Singapore post option) through Quantium. I haven't found one yet, try as I might.

    I ordered on Dec. 16 and the package shows sent to Singapore on the 24th. Tomorrow will be 8 days with no movement

    Try the USPS tracking https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfi...n!input.action Quantium only works until it leaves the country. 8 days it may very well be in the country now.

    If at any time I offend you with something I post, you better suck it up, I'm going to do it again.

    That Kayfun has a satin brushed finish, so I have the option of getting a mirror polished tank (which won't match) or a matte tank (which also won't match). I haven't decided to pull the trigger on that yet. I might end up getting the matte (sandblasted) kayfun 3.1 and matte tank just to have a matching set.

    Edit: Still waiting for the Kayfun lite I ordered. We'll see how I like that one first before I go ordering more Kayfuns.

    even i had the same doubt that it wont match and i have even asked regarding this @ FT forums but got the answer from this thread

    Kayfun 3.1 looks like satin brushed finish in the pics but its polished finish in reality polished metal will match it.

    Awesome! ECF saves the day (again)!
    Thank you, you just made it worth the amount of time I spent posting those links.

    Things might be moving faster.

    Ordered some small things (no liquids, no batteries of any kind) on Dec. 24th (Christmas Eve) via ePacket to the US.


    January 1, 2014 Depart USPS Sort Facility .FLUSHING, NY 11351
    January 1, 2014 , 4:28 am Arrive USPS Sort Facility .JERSEY CITY, NJ 07097
    January 1, 2014 , 3:20 am Depart USPS Sort Facility .FLUSHING, NY 11351
    December 31, 2013 , 8:58 pm Processed through USPS Sort Facility .FLUSHING, NY 11351
    Origin Post is Preparing Shipment .
    December 28, 2013 , 11:12 am Processed Through Sort Facility .SHENZHEN EMS, CHINA
    December 27, 2013 , 10:04 am Acceptance .CHINA

    Wow! Accepted in China on the 27th, processed on the 28th, in NY on the 31st. Can't complain about that!

    Edited to add:

    Another ePacket package, also ordered Dec. 24th, accepted in China on the 28th, processed through the sort facility on the 29th.

    And a third ePacket package, ordered Dec. 25th, accepted in China on the 30th, processed through the sort facility on the 30th.

    That's three ePacket shipments that processed through the Chinese sort facility in one day.

    My wishlist (aka. shopping cart):
    https://www.fasttech.com/products/1439803

    https://www.fasttech.com/products/1494700
    https://www.fasttech.com/products/1562800
    Great list!

    I have the things above and with the exception of https://www.fasttech.com/products/1439803, which was a leaky, gurgly, awful mess, they are all really nice, great even.

    The Kayfuns are awesome.

    Of the drip tips, the one I like best is the diagonally-cut one. At first I thought it was going to be sharp and uncomfortable, but used at the right angle on my eternity clone, it is smooth and impressive. The Chi You tip is less comfortable to use, but that's very individual. It's beautifully made, though.

    Enjoy!

    I've read that using a protank head fixes the leaky, gurgly mess issue with the K2 (Fluid Flask look-alike). I'm willing to give it a go.

    Going by the pics on the Chaos tip, I figured I'd be doing a bit of file work to round off the edges. Good to know that won't be an issue.

    I tried the protank head on the K2...and didn't find it too effective. You may have more success with it than I did. Now, between the Kayfuns and the Eternity clones I have, I don't even feel like using my other stuff...I'm getting old, spoiled and lazy, I guess!

    At first I fhought the Chaos tip would need filing, too, but in fact it's a question of finding the right way to use it. Now I really like it as is and wouldn't think of filing it - horrors! I find I can actually drip through it into the Eternity clone - the bore is large enough to use it as a true dripping tip, which is somewhat rare.
