I just ordered a SMPL in copper, price was just too good. I've had countless mechs, some still in my possesion, some long gone. I hadn't bought any in awhile but just wanted something new. I looked local, online state side and overseas. There really wasn't anything that jumped out at me. I will say there seems to be a small resurgence in mechs but no where to the point they were. Looking through FT there was more discontinued then new offerings. It was kind of sad to see models I used to dream about no longer offered. I am an 18650 tube die hard and am just sad to see the lack of anything interesting. I know they're just tubes and only so much can be done, have they reached a pinnacle of designs or is it lack of popularity? Only reason I decided on the SMPL, is my 4nine clone has about had it, the mags are about dead and wanting something that doesn't need a magnet stuck to the battery. I guess I'm getting/wanting simple as I age, lol. It's just like watching vape shops fade out and comps. disappear. Has the VW/Temp mods killed the sport part of vaping?, in my area it seems to be dying out. I'm just starting to feel like a dinosaur, this year has seemed to be and end to a lot a lot of staple companies.
