    Looks like Fasttech has a nimbus clone, saw it on vaporjoes.

    I'll be the guinea pig. Ordered 2.

    We'll see how it actually compares to my nimbus, not expecting much but for 5 bucks and change a piece its worth a shot

    When you do get it, please post if it has a drip well and if it has three posts.

    I saw that too. With the stainless steel drip tip that's included, it's almost like; buy one drip tip, get a free RBA.

    It's a dripper and it's dirt cheap, I'll probably buy one.

    I don't think the driptip is SS I think they sell the driptip separate and list it as chrome I might be wrong hope so lol.

    heads up igo-w saw it in a co-op. looks to be another nimbus clone. but quality appears to be there. same makers of AGI and igo rdas.

    if I already wasnt in a nimbus co-op id pick these up too. hell once its more readily avail might pick one up anyways. I can always give them to friends once im done playing with them

    also im not knocking the igo's either I have 2 agi's and 2 igo-ls. I use them as much as my nimbus. Thats why im very curious about their new atty. igo-l is a stand up dripper for the price.

    ok folks. came in today. havnt built it yet. iterally just opened it.

    finish is a brushed stainless. Overall build quality is actually good. heavy sucker for it's size. pretty nice drip tip.

    bad thing so far is, only one hole.

    too easy to fix the air hole issues

    Only China could clone a device one of the main selling points of which is dual air holes, and only put one in.

    Planned on modifying the existing hole anyhow, no big deal X) well worth the $55 saved over getting a nimbus.

    so after taking apart further and drilling holes. Nimbus is more sturdy with better metal. I was able to drill out the holes ont he chimbus with no issues. it'll also be tough running dual coils with thicker gauge on this as the holes are on the small side.
