    I put the Tatroe extender on my mini and it comes out to the bottom of the sleeve I modified and the new bottomless sleeve I ordered in the regular size. If you are into creating what you want out of what someone else made, I would do it. It is nice not to have to slide it over the Provari every time you change the battery. Bear in mind that the leather probably will relax down the road. The bottomless sleeves are $20, I think, if you don't want to take the stopper out of yours.

    Here are some of the sleeves that I own, some of my Provari's as well, note the tape on the mini, in the 1st pic on the right, has been removed, I had it on it to keep it from moving in the sleeve.

    Thanks. When Cigtechs has Tatroe rings in stock again, I’ll probably modify the sleeve I have, unless Tim makes some brown bottomless sleeves. I’m not really worried about my sleeve getting too loose. I had to stretch it out a little just so I get my Provari out without too much trouble.

    How did you get the blue color off your dolphin sleeve?

    Soap and sandpaper. I conditioned the leather later. I like to rehab leather purses so I already had stuff around to clean it up with.

    I just received a really unexpected check in the mail today!

    I will be taking 1 of the 2 purple ones available ^.^

    Now to decide which mini to pair it with. I want a green one.. but the shade I desire only exists on the hybrid of which I have in standard and doesn't seem to be available in mini.

    The black one direct from Provape is most likely the one I will buy. But I am curious as to how the finish holds up with use of the Serenity Gear sleeves. My blue/green seems to be fairing very well and I am positive that it would be far worse off with out the sleeve by now. I only ask because the majority used black Provari' seem to have more wear on the finish as opposed to other colors that I have seen.

    I suppose it really doesn't matter as it would be mostly kept in the sleeve... Thoughts?

    My Black/Red Hybrid has been in a SGL sleeve for 6 weeks and looks none the worse for wear.

    I like my sleeve snug. I soaked it in warm water, warmed in oven @ 160F to dry and to Sno-Seal it. Good stuff.



    Warning - Sno-Seal darkens lighter leather. My brown sleeves are almost black.

    The most durable finish's are the all stainless, or the Zen coat finishes, I never really liked the colors they offer, other then the black, but I have seen several pics of the wear on them, so no colors for me.

    Ah yes so far I have not seen a zen coat that I like, royal purple metallic would be nice though.

    The thought of stainless steel just doesn't make me giddy.

    Thanks for the info Mowgli & Kas!

    I'm going to take a chance and get the black mini with green LED and pair it with the mentioned sleeve.

    Thanks for this tip! I just got a black Tatroe ring. It sticks out of the bottom of my regular SG sleeve about 1/8 of an inch with the stopper removed. I love it!

    Now if I only had a custom Provarinati end cap........ Has anyone heard anything about them from Provape lately?
