    Also out of the Magneto, Nemesis clone, and Astro clone, the Astro is the smallest.

    I'm vaping a Nemesis and Trident clone right now. I've not tried the Astro, but it gets great reviews on FT. If that is what you want, I say go for it.

    The Trident will make a lot of vapor if you set it up that way. It comes with one dual air holes option which are not big - I estimate under 2 millimeters. It also has three single air holes which I think are even smaller then the doubles. You definitily need the dual joles for dual coils. If you go below about 0.6 ohms combined dual coils in it I would suggest you should think seriously about drilling the air holes bigger or you will be pulling really hard and wasting the battery power for no gain. Check out this video for more info on it.

    Your battery selection and a good charger will be critical to safety for low ohms. Hopefully your friend understands this, but not everyone who does this knows. You can read about batteries for low ohm use in this thread. Basically, the lower you go in ohms the more amps (power) you draw from your batts. If you use too much for too long the battery will start to heat up. Get one hot enough and it will vent gas, which is nasty stuff and venting can get dangerous as well.

    Are you able to get your trident flush on the nemesis? I just posted on another thread that I cant because of the minimal amount of threads on both my nemesis and trident clones, and then stumbled onto this. When i screw it down flush it seems like it's catching a portion of a thread because if i knock it or take drip tip off, it comes loose and is wobbly. Hoping you have a solution, but not too obvious of one that I feel dumb

    I also have a trident clone (Gold model) and had the same problem with other drip tips not fitting. It is my go to for dripping. Repping a .7 ohm nano coil with a cotton wick, and vaping home made organic mango cream e liquid. yummmm

    The 510 center pin screws up and down. What I do is take off the top part of the Nemesis, screw that center pin down away from the atty and put the atty on all the way, pretty tight by hand. Then screw the pin back in to make light contact with the atty. Install on the Nemesis and screw down the switch button so it's just snug on the battery. I've had minimal issues with the Trident unscrewing when I manipulate it and when that has happened I don't remember it becoming wobbly, but I would have tightened it down again right away.

    If what you're saying is that when you screw down the Trident there is only part of a thread catching the Nemesis' threads, that is not the case with mine.

    I just saw the Magneto clone with inlaid crystals... Would it be a good choice? I like it cause it looks more like a girls mech mod.

    Yea, thats what I was trying to say, you phrased it better though. Unfortunately that is how I do it. Thanks though! Wanna trade

    I have the magneto and think its a pretty good mech, but a little tall/long for my liking(an inch taller than nemesis in 18650 mode). Not sure how the clone compares, but if the crystals are calling your name and reviews are good I'd grab it, and maybe one of the others on your list if you can afford at the moment.

    The trident clone fits my magneto no problem so I would think/hope it fits the clone as well

    Heard nothing but good things about the Astro clone. And it is kickable with a 18650. Would recommend getting the Evolv kick 2, when starting to explore the sub ohm zone. The kick 2 will turn you mech mod into a Variable Wattage device, accept builds from .5-3 ohms, and max out at 15 watts. This will give you all the protection of an regulated device and allow you the room to learn how to build and get into sub ohms safety. The once you are skilled and learned enough to venture down to .3 ohms, you can un-kick it. But since some atomizers aren't good with sub ohm builds, you can still kick them at 15 watts and have a fantastic vape.


    I am not into dripping, so can't say much there, but what I've seen on the trident looked good. Although with rba's, I find that paying for the Authentic devise is well worth the price.
