    Currently us a Zen genesis with a zen mechanical for my main set up. I am now need a new authentic genesis with a 510 connection to use on a 50 watt box mod. Preferred set up would be stainless steel construction and single wick / hole air hole. Would like to know of some options been searching and seams they are not to popular. Looking to spend less than $200

    A couple I was looking at was the gama but the raised 3 post design is a turn off and looked at a Prometheus but it appears unnecessarily complicated and don't believe it includes a Pyrex tank. Open to suggestions for new items.

    Todd talks about the Origen Genny v2 in his latest VLOG. Worth looking at for sure. Personally, I've got my heart set on that BF-99 as soon as budget/availability line up.

    Just saw some videos on the Origen and bf-99. Both have deal-breaking flaws (for me). Plastic tank on the Origen. Flaking coating on the bf-99. :(

    Oh man that's a bummer! I had no idea that was an issue. And i believe hes doing a metal tank section for the Origen Gen V2, iirc.

    Here's the bf-99 review I was thinking of. Flaky coating. And I quote "They build this as an adjustable air flow. This is no more adjustable than a Kayfun Lite".

    Bummer indeed. I was intrigued when I first heard about it. Hope they do a revised version.

    Damn... that doesn't sound too good. I'm sure they'll address it. The whole thing with genny's esp. high end's not having good adjustable air flow still doesn't make sense to me. Is it that the modders are so sure they've designed a perfect mod that doesn't need air control or that they haven't got to that point yet... it's such a simple task.

    The RSST is a great genny. May not be the best looking one out there but it is simple, easy to use, and preforms very well!

    The ceramic does flake a bit, but only in a couple of high use spots, and only if you hit it with metal tools.

    The airflow is no more adjustable than a Kayfun, but not having a gaping hole is what makes it so flavorful. The BF-99 is specifically designed to use a mouth > lung inhale and excels at providing mind blowing flavor when used in this manner. This is a refined, sophisticated vape (think a fine cigar v a Marlboro light), and isn't meant for the average cloud chaser.

    They're looking for a very refined vape where flavor is the primary consideration. You can't get saturated flavor with gaping holes in the top cap. You vape these in a very similar manner to smoking a cigarette (with a mouth > lung inhale). The lack of huge air holes is a feature, not a bug.

    And the BF-99 does have adjustable airflow, it's just that the most ope is still relatively small if you're used to big drippers.

    I am by no measure a cloud chaser. I just don't see the point of having AFC if it doesn't go from bigger than what I want to smaller than what I want.

    If the ceramic coating won't stick under normal use (which includes some tool contact), I see no reason to put in on in the first place. It's not like you can't set up a wire/mesh wick with an un-insulated deck.

    However! I don't doubt it gives a great vape :)

    This. .... clouds i could care less lol. But AFC "should" be made so that it's adjustable. Sometimes with some juice and build combos i want a slightly stiffer draw and sometimes looser. To not have a decent range of adjustable options is a let down for a high end genny.

    My Sat22 and Lon have restrictive holes that do just perfectly with most juices.... do i still wish they were adjustable? Hell yes! lol Let me customize.

    Update : ended up going with a pulse g . The final picks were garage of creation h atty or pulse g. Did not pick the h atty even though I really liked it because it has a silver plated brass center post and I just don't care for brass on my deck. Issues real or not.

    Currently trying to figure out how to replicate the amount of vapor I get with my zenesis hybrid on the pulse g not quite there yet.

    If anyone knows about any new all stainless steal genesis please keep the thread going

    Single Wick RRST with Pyrex tank tank-- I modified mine for a U Wick but works great as original single wick. I use SS Cable and 400 or 500 SS Mesh
