    Hi there folks

    I am one of those weird people who has a couple (that's right, two of them...:facepalm:) of 17mm diameter Mini Nemesis (Nemi) mods

    I already have a SmokTech Scar RDA for it which is unfortunately 18-18.5mm diameter and aesthetically does not please me as well as an Anima clone coming (which is reportedly 17mm diameter)

    What I'm looking for is a different topper for my Nemi's, I'm thinking I'd like something with a tank of some description (whether it be Kayfun style, Genesis style or Carto style) for being out and about and driving

    Adjustable airflow would be nice or at least the ability to redrill the stock tiny airholes that come on many devices

    I've never tried a carto tank either but haven't been able to find one in 17mm.

    I'd prefer something that won't leak too readily if it's a tank style. I have my dripping down to a fine art and rarely get leaks off those devices but tanks worry me

    Suggest away, I'm open to any and all suggestions

    Oooooh, very interesting, I hadn't even considered a Taifun, I normally look at Kayfuns, the Taifun has a much nicer looking build deck...

    What's it like to use? leak and air flow wish

    Just been doing some research into the Taifun, it seems to be basically an upside down Genesis... is that a good way of thinking about it?

    Looks that way, but isn't. It's pressure differential, just like a GT, but with the wicks in the top rather than the sides... you can only fit so much into a 17mm diameter. ;-)
    Actually, there are several wick style options because you can build with primary and feeder wicks... and even retention packing like a GP Heron.

    Here... this may help. http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/rebuildable-atomizer-systems/528159-taifun-gs-setup.html

    Cool, thanks mate

    Just also wondering, does anyone know of an actual carto tank that comes in a 17mm diameter?

    No idea on the carto tanks, haven't seen any myself. When Smoktech first came out with their DCTs, the smaller of the two was just a little under that, though

    As for 17mm RBAs, the original version of the Arrow is 17mm and the GG Penelope is right around 17

    yeah I've looked into both the arrow and penelope but neither seems to still be made any more, in either original or clone form

    Can't get Penelope any more or the clones of her :( looks a bit of a confusing tank setup though

    I didn't realize the Arrow was discontinued. As for Penelope, yeah it's always a crapshoot if or when another manufacturing run will be done on those products (yes the setup can be confusing the first couple times, but it gets much easier than it looks with practice). I guess the best bet for either one of those would probably be somewhere in the used gear market (several trading groups on Facebook or similar, as well as the Classifieds here, etc) :2c:

    Can't think of much else since 17mm is such an odd size, most everything I've personal experience with is 14, 16 or 20+

    Well, I guess I could settle for a 16mm atty if that's more common, any good ones in that size that you could recommend?

    Yeah I'm waiting on Fasttech for my anima clone to arrive, looking forward to that but I'd really like something tank-like for out and about as well as suggestions of other drippers to use as I sometimes just drip on the run

    Kayfun Mini is the way to go for a tank system, Taifun GS is nice, but way more difficult to get it wicking properly, and only marginally better when it does work properly. I've had my Taifun working perfectly for a week or more then all the sudden it will decide to dump the tank of juice, haven't tried it yet with filler Spheroid style, but I really don't use it much since I've picked up the KF Minis, nice thing about the mini is is you can also remove the tank, and use it like a mini dripper.

    Love the Mini clones, have three of the Ivogos.

    Have 2 sophias, Divers, I do use them, but prefer my Minis, which are very hard to beat built right. These are a better vape when built properly then any of the Full size I have, though the orchid, and Hcigar HC are pretty damn good.

    Got rid of my Divers over the Sophias just find them better all round. Kayfun mini is ok find it a bit ugly vapes better than the KFLs and 3.1. Prefer GG Penelope, Xplora, Taifun GS.

    Just feel the Kayfun has had its day Orchid looks interesting.
