    Thanks you for the pics. I can't wait for mine, it looks bloody gorgeous! Could you do me a favor and measure the 510 driptip/driptip platform?

    Does anybody have the Shenray and SXK versions, to compare?

    I have a couple of SXK Products. I have found them to be Very High Quality.

    Me too but this is by far the best quality I ever got from them. My sxk smpl mod is quiet well made but the switch is a bit knurly...

    I have the Fast Tech SXK and it compares very well to my authentics. I also picked up a 24mm version from 3Fvape. Not sure who makes it but it's definitely different from the SXK. The 510 pin is dangerously low - almost flush - so I would never consider using it as a dripper on a direct-to-battery mod like a SMPL or Able. I ended up putting a tiny o-ring on the pin so it would extend out a bit, even though I will only be using it to squonk. And the screws used to secure the wire plates are tiny philips-head screws. Pretty sure I'm going to strip out the heads quickly. As far as the fit and finish - they both look good.

    It's this one:

    So you call this "almost flush"? Thats got to be every bit of 3mm above the deck... There is no way possible for this deck to drain completely. This is nothing more than a dripper with a BF pin added for squonking as an afterthought!!

    this IS almost flush... i wouldn't be able to use that on my dripbox as is.

    Thanks for the clarification. Now that I went back and read it, it makes sense...:?:

    no worries, i figured that was what you were mistaken about... some mods like my dripbox have a fixed 510... that short and the atty is useless to me, i need it to definitely be down further.

    SXK Hadaly arrived yesterday and was immediately cleaned and built. Build quality is typical SXK (WONDERFUL) but the air holes on my positive block are drilled a bit lower and askew than the rest of the holes. This doesn't really seem to affect performance much, but I'll probably pick up another.

    I really like how smooth the airflow is. And with a chunky machi ring that comes right up to the airholes it looks very sleek and high-end.

    P.S. Owners of authentic Hadaly's: Think the accessory caps might fit the SXK?

    SXK Hadaly on the Pico Squeeze... if you want to get into bottom feeding this is a great affordable setup to start with.

    I was hoping to answer this long ago but it took a month and a half to get my SXK Hadalys from FT. (I bought the authentic Hadaly in November along with a black and clear one-piece caps.)

    The authentic caps work perfectly with the SXK. Unfortunately I'm not a fan of the one-piece caps. For me, they put my mouth a little too close to the coil. Oh well. :)

    Finally received the FT SXK Hadaly to compare to the Shenray Hadaly
    $14.90 SXK Hadaly Styled RDA Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer - stainless steel / 22mm diameter at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    ShenRay Hadaly 316SS Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer with Bottom Feeding Pin - Silver

    Both very good machining.
    SXK has plated brass squonk pin, and post screws, ShenRay has SS...same good size squonk hole
    The SXK post mounting plates are ground at more of an angle, giving less room to clamp claptons.
    Single wires would be fine or flip the plates for claptons.
    The air holes on the SXK cap are smaller than the ShenRay, the base airholes are the same for both.
    Not sure why SXK didn't match the base size air holes.
    My preference is the ShenRay, mostly because of the looser airflow.

    Am I the only one where the cap doesn't sit flush with the deck? The cap just won't rest at the deck. Maybe the o-rings cause this. After a few seconds the cap gets pushed up even more. Hereby the airflow holes from the base and the cap don't even align.

    Did you soak or wash the atty prior to using it?

    adding a little bit of juice to the o-rings will prevent them from catching the top.
