    I really love GG for its innovation, style and quality. I own lots of Tilemahos (v2/v2+/x1) and other GG gear. However, I'm really unhappy with the matt "22mm" v2+ base and AD ring that arrived today. Actually, the diameter is around 21.8mm, so it's clearly too thin. The steps between the AD ring and GG4S and between the base and body look and feel really bad. This seems to be a problem with the last batch? I know at least two other users having the same problem with their latest X1 purchase.

    Edit: Also, the edges on the base and ring are much sharper than they used to be.

    I have one that's like that too. I'll have to measure it when I get home from work today.

    Dang! I can't find my micrometer. But here's a pic and you can see it pretty good.
    I bought this one about 6 months ago from Bitfumo.

    guys, GG is shined by hand. The man that shines them is a professional that works for 40 years, shining metals. But hand is hand. Some pieces are shined a little more than others.

    This is not happening only on GG line but on all mods. Its impossible to have the same diameter on all pieces of a batch.

    ps........The pics you post are huge and the difference is visible. But you cant see a difference of 0,2mm in the 23mm diameter that Tilemahos is. Maybe you can feel it if you insist but not see it.

    Personally I'm not all that concerned with it. I just posted the pic of the matt version, to show that it's been this way for a while.
    It's much much less noticeable with the shined versions. I'm assuming that's due to the edges being 'rolled' a little from shinning process.

    Imeo, it's NOT about the shined version but the matt version. And yes, it's visible. Please take it as feedback from your friends rather than an angry complaint. Anyway, it would be great if the diameter of the base, AD ring and body would match again with the next batch.

    I will do as you said nota.

    By the way, I didnt get it as an angry complaint and I didnt get ungry too, I was just explaining the situation.

    I am wondering if there is something that can be done, other than asking the man that shines GG to be more careful. But I will, thank you :)

    I saw they had Brass GGTB tubes, they went quick.
    Other updated parts are still available including the new X1 housing with larger wicking slots.
