    The Hercules looks right at home on top of the EA Mod... I don't usually use the 510 base, but in this case, I will make an exception...

    Ordered the Fast Tech version a couple of days ago. Will take a while to get here of course but looking forward to trying them out side by side for myself.

    sorry if I missed something but I do believe that the Hercules/Ithaca on a stealth top cap allows for a smaller configuration than on a GGTS native mode less 510 collector thing... am I wrong?

    It's just about 10 mm shorter with the stealth cap vs collector tank/ CR on MKB

    One possible solution that could work if you don't want to remove your custom spacer is to use a locking ring from a Terminator. One of my Terms is on the back-burner right now so I have some spare parts to play with. I've been using the Term locking ring from the Term rebuildable because I have had occasional issues with the Herc rebuildable part screwing/unscrewing when I adjust the juice control. Once it opened up basic feeding (which I don't use), and once it moved the positive wires under the washer causing a short so I use the Term locking ring/nut to lock that puppy down. I just thought it might help you make up that extra space to close your juice control and keep the spacer.....

    I screw the ceramic housing in pretty tight on "Ithaka" type atomizers, I've had no problems with it unscrewing with the mouthpiece.

    Hey buddy, that is a really good idea, I do have an exctra ring I could toss on there in the next build. Thanks for the heads up!

    I received my Fasttech ithaka clone yesterday. The polish job is very nice but i still prefer the brushed finish on my herc. Threads are a little looser than the herc but still smooth. I didn't get to try it out because it was missing an o-ring between the base and the bottom tank section. For the price i can't complain and it will make a good back-up to the herc.
