    the p67 is the one with the side button, grands have top buttons. You turn the button to lock it. the p67 has a lock you slide on the inside. Which bf attys do you use? I love the O-16 Was using the Rm8 before that (derringer clone), but didn't like building dual coils since it was super hard for me to see. But it was too weak with just a single. The o-16 gives a great vape for me with a single z coil

    I modified the derringer clone and a few others and they worked pretty good..........had the strangest luck with my other two squonkers.......the eliquid tasted good the first day but after two days in the bottle

    it tasted stale......and so I moved on to like my drippers and tanks more than the squonkers..........

    You owe it to your self to give it another try. I have been using REOs for a long, long time and I've never had that problem that I know of. I mean, if it happens I guess it doesn't bother me. The P67 (REO with the side button) is the culmination of all the good ideas put together into one supermod.

    How did you modify them? Like JC I've never had juice taste stale. the O16 clone at FT is a good one. It can be closed down a lot, or opened for a fairly good lung hit. I use a single z coil, but open both airholes to the largest setting. Then put the top cap on with the air holes angled between the wick and the post. That opened the air a lot

    Try using less cotton just enough to touch the deck... and then squonking more often. You may find that it works a little better for you. It stops as much semi cooked juice being pulled back down into the bottle. I find it gives a much fresher taste this way. As always your mileage may vary... but you would only be wasting a very small amount of cotton if it did not work out for you :)

    Yes, the trick to good performance with squonkers is in the wicking. It differs from conventional dripping in that you don't need your wick to be a reservoir to hold extra juice. Conventional drippers use the wicks to hold juice, so that they don't have to drip as often, and can get more pulls before having to re drip.
    With squonkers, there's always fresh juice in the bottle, just a squonk away. You only need the tails of the wick to be long enough to pull juice up from the deck to the coil. So, trim your wicks so that the ends just touch the deck; no longer.

    Off topic, but I lived and worked around Syracuse for many years. My daughter and her family live there. I get up there a couple times a year.

    Couldn't agree with you more and like your moniker... Reo P67's ARE supermods, IMO they are "the" Supermods. :D
