I should have posted this in here but I posted in Odysseus Official thread so the magic of copy and paste
My take on the Odysseus:
I have been using the Odysseus since February of this year. I have it used it in short, Full, and in dripping mode. I can not say how much I enjoy this product. The quality and build is amazing. I work in the Aviation industry and have experience with aircraft grade metals, and QC some of the items we produce in our machine shop(full machine shop where we produce aircraft parts). I would dare say that Imeo's products compare with the strict rules we have to follow in aviation. The tolerances, fit, and finish are some of the best I have seen(even in aviation).
I have read some people had issues with the Odysseus leaking. I personally had no issues with leaking with this product. I did exactly what Imeo said to do in his videos and everything worked as advertised. As for taste and vapor, this is the best, period! I've had my experiences with almost all cartos, and atomizers. I do not know if I can ever go back to them after using the Odysseus. Wick and coil is simple enough to make, and I usually just make one once a week for the hell of it. Longest I went so far was 2 weeks but only changed it out to show a friend how I made the wick and coil for the Odysseus. I'm pretty sure that wick and coil would have lasted another 2 weeks. In the end, I just wanted to thank Imeo and all others here in this GG forum. I have learned alot from all of you and I'm sure I will keep learning from you! So a BIG THANKS!
My Initial Impressions of my SS GGTS #693, My first GG product
The first thing I want to say is how impressed I am with the overall manufacturing quality. I was once a jewelry Tool and Diemaker and had to sometimes work to tolerances of .0001 of an inch. I developed quite an eye for precision and know the painstaking process required to work to tight manufacturing tolerances.
The way the GG screwed and unscrewed smoothly and without fuss impressed me. This included all scopes, ends, adapters basically any threaded item. It felt like a precision instrument. The finish, logos and numbers were clear and well defined. My SS GGTS was not a new one either, so that is a testament to the durability of the engravings. I have only had this for about 2 days and have only "fiddled" with it so far. I do have an AVS v2 that I will be trying with it but I need to order some attys for it. I spent some time polishing it trying to get it to dspins "shine" requirements...lol I think I succeeeded.
I was in awe of this masterpiece and almost didn't want to use it for fearing of dropping or marking it somehow. Somehow I feel that is normal when someone first handles a genuine treasure!
Well I have been a carto and tank guy up to this point so I strapped on my MadVapes DCT tank (chrome of course) with a 1.5 ohm carto in the tank and threw a 4.8 nimh battery in there that came of the charger at 5.6-5.7. I had to use the 901 to 510 adapter and then 510 to 510 adapter. I can tell you when I was done the tank was able to screw right down to the control tank and I was able to use the draw control even with something that was not a GG device. I found this to be remarkable planning and versatility for what I thought was primarily a proprietary device. I was extremely pleased.
OK enough BS....I put it to my lips and vaped and it was so smooth...that was my definite first impression ....smooth. I thought I was not doing something right ?! Then the taste hit ...omg. Then the exhale and throat hit...an incredibly new experience for me....clouds of vapor. I just did this a few moments ago so my feeling about it are still fresh. Then I discovered I could adjust the draw....wow.....The precision fit allowed that tank to sit PERFECTLY on the control ring.
I ran to my wife exclaiming "You have to try this!!" It is unbelievably good!!"
If you are thinking about getting a GGTS....stop thinking and just do it, you will not be sorry. It is truly a masterpiece of precision and quality in addition to IMEO's incredible hands on customer service...So just go get one...now, right now.
Imeo and the GG family thanks for answering my questions and numerous PM's about GG. This family is of the same high quality as the maker and the device are!!

Decided to re-post my first review also - blast from the past
GGTS - Things I dislike and like w/this mod
First off I will start with the things I like about it and finish off with what I dislike and any recommendations that I have.
I was originally attracted to the GGTS because of the design of it w/the engraving, fancy button and high shine.
With further research I found that it had vent holes as standard. This is a must for mods, especially tube mods. It also has an adjustable draw w/the ability to blow out your atty without removing it from the mod. This is just pure genius IMO. I have a tendancy to over drip sometimes and this makes it very easy. It would be a real pain to have to unscrew everything just to blow out the atty. Its a pain to unscrew and remove an atty from my other devices as it is..
Also has a locking button and you can unscrew the telescope a bit for safety in transporting.
It is made to accept all attys. It has a 4 in 1 connector to use 501, 306, 901, 801 and 808d type atomizers and cartomizers. To use the 801 though, you must
get an 801 adjustable draw cap. To use a 901 you must screw on one of the two included thread adapters.
Vape quality is excellent. For some reason my attys perform better on this. I found a big difference trying out the Ikenvape Mini 801 2.0 - I never liked that atty, it did not taste good on my other mods. I am a LR 1.5 user but then I tried it on this as a lark and found it did vape much better - In fact I like it now. YMMV
Another great feature is that it has telescoping ability to accept an array of different battery configurations, for 3.7v, 6v and 7.4v For example:
Single Batteries - 14500,14650,CR2,CR123A,16340.17340,17500,17670,183 50,18500 and 18650
Double Battery configurations - 15270,16340,17340,14500,CR123A,CR2 and 18650.
The 18650 and 14500 to run double requires an additional purchase of an extension sleeve.
I ask you, what other all mechanical mod has this ability??
A tank system is also available to buy if you want to automatically juice feed your atty or cartomizer.
Overall: Excellent design and vape quality - a solid 10 out of 10 - I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.
Now for what I dislike:
Nothing - Zero - It's an amazing device
Since this is an advanced user device, it would be greatly beneficial to come w/written instructions & illustrations on its proper use. Example - attaching the atty, how to maintain it, etc, etc. I personally watched all the videos possible and read all the threads before I bought it and still had one small issue upon arrival. The new button - it had changed, so I was asking questions that pertained to the old one. Just my 2 cents on that
