    I think the ZenKote is worth the extra cost. I'd prefer a mini without the battery extension cap, but I'll live with it. I would guess that if the body and cap are from different batches, or even located too far apart in the same batch there might be a noticeable difference in the color of the finish, so it would make sense to pair them at the time of manufacture. But I'll hold out for Gunmetal or one of the blue finishes. The gold is just too..... gold. Rose Gold..... maybe.

    I had hoped for more of an exciting result from a Zen/Provari collaboration, but the addition of ZenKote to a Provari just makes it that much better looking and with a nearly indestructible finish. I get more fired up about it the more I think about it.

    Sorry but that is ugly.

    I don't think that I would pay extra for the gear shift knob in Donald Trumps gold plated Honda.

    Satin silver does not have cerakote.. w/red LED & no extension, it's the base model... $160
    Throw in the extension? $177

    Polished stainless doesn't have cerakote, either.. but there's an additional step to get it that way, so therefore just as expensive as a cerakote (black, bronze, hybrid, etc.), which is also an additional step


    $177 is, in my eyes, the correct base price to compare the ZenKote to

    $230 minus $177 = $53

    That's a $53 finish

    I'm not so sure that's the only end-result of Zen/ProVape for this go-around..


    At the very least, especially with the $230 price-tag, I'm thinking we might be getting the other ZenKote colors at some point, too


    And there's a chance that it didn't stop with just the finish(es).. guess we'll have to wait & see...

    On a positive note I would considering purchasing one for sure, Just not the Gold. I never was a big gold guy....... but black and silver OH ya. Black and silver Provari owner and I have a Dodge Ram I cherish and baby (to the point of making wife jealous) which is Silver with a touch of black here and there. I say come on ZEN SILVER, please be next.

    I can also see why they choose gold for the introduction....... But wish is was white gold LOL.

    Have fun Gold lovers, at least it is a decent looking gold according to the pics
