    GP PAPS v2.5 LUX Edition

    Well, went ahead and ordered the first batch of GP PAPS LUX. It was tough, many days of lurking on their Facebook page, then taking day-off on Thursday, May-16th/2013, the sale day, site opened @ 4pm local time (it was 11pm in Athens-Greece), their website nearly crashing (overloaded) and finally getting thru the checkout process in 45minutes... man it was tough. However, as the Paypal confirmation came thru - it seemed so worth it.

    Basic features: 22mm x 60mm in 18350 mode, which is the serialized main unit. The tubes are made of aluminium-bronze, while the caps (top & bottom) being SS. All contacts and the adjustable centre post are gold over silver plated brass. And now the locking ring has 4 x 1mm ridges, which enables the LUX to stand upright even in it's unlocked state.

    Price: The Mod, €120 EUR. Shipping, €15 EUR (by DHL to Canada). Total €135 EUR, which works to $181.79 CAD.

    More details: www.vapourart.com; Facebook

    Though this is my 2nd GP I yet can't seem to go thru the wait anymore... it is exciting! How many of you made it thru yesterday? And how's the feeling?

    I got through also. Finally got it on the 55th minute.

    The website was crashing constantly which was fine, but the most infuriating part was check out. It took 5 minutes to load the states for the country. However, if you by mistake chose a wrong country (i.e. Pakistan), then even if you chose the United States, 5 minutes later it'd load the cities for Pakistan.

    Just when finally the states loaded, the shipping methods didn't load. If you clicked checkout before it loaded, it'd give you an error and you'd have to start again.

    I don't think I ever want to go through that ....ty, sad excuse of a checkout, but I'm glad to have gotten my LUX 2.5

    ^Exactly. It was difficult, frustrating, irritating... but I guess all these sites (Caravela, Poldiac, Chi You etc.) go thru similar drops during their sale days. And the fact that we have finally 'got it' - makes everythig bearable.

    Come to think of it - I'm liking my number, #0247 - Pretty much exactly what I'm doing since y'day - vaping 24/7:) ...I know it's randomly generated, and that makes it all the more special... Thank U once again Vapour Art!

    Looks like a really nice mod but i'm going to be honest, the engraving on it bugs the hell out of me. I think it may be the font but i really don't know.

    I completely agree with JC, the new switch v2.5 is phenomenal... It is the smoothest button and being able to stand it up any time with any weight catapults it to another level. The threads are perfect. I can not wait to upgrade my v2.1 with this switch. I almost sold it and then decided against it, now I'm glad I kept it since I can upgrade it.

    How about some GP LUX Accessories ?

    Given the neat feat with this LUX Edition, its gorgeousness, I believe it also deserves some of it's own accessories, some hi-quality stuff... say a LUX Carry Pouch, Sleeve or Hard Case... a GP Drip-Tip, Or how about a Tank-Atty dedicated to it, something like the "Vela Latina"? Maybe the GP S&P gets a tweak.

    I'm sure GP will find a loveable market for these amongst us.

    I'm waiting!
