    The RoughStack currently being sold uses the wire. Like 440BB said, the wire is soldered to the the atty connector pin. If you recently purchased or are about to purchase a RoughStack this is the version you will get. Changing the switch is as simple as removing the nut holding the switch in place, "unplugging" the wire from the old switch assembly and then just doing the reverse to put it back together with your new switch.

    The older version used a spring to make the connection to the atty connector pin. Myself (and others) have had issues with the bit of straw that insulated the spring melting, causing a short. MadVapes took a cue from others who modded their RoughStacks to use wire instead of the spring which is prone to failure. If you have the older version of the RoughStack, it is indeed easier to just replace the switch assembly with the spring version as there is no soldering required. However, if you have the newer version, it's easier to just use the replacement that comes with the wire because again, no soldering is required. If you're going to replace the wired version with the spring version, you'll have to desolder the wire before you can use the spring.

    ETA: Read you just bought a RoughStack... If you ever need to replace the switch assembly, go with the wired version. Congrats on your new mod.

    After 9months, I am likely going to sell my roughsatck. I have been bitten by the VV bug. She hasn't been used since I got my Buzz Pro.

    I would still recomend a Roughstack to anyone that wants a GREAT, DEPENDABLE fixed voltage mod. I may give it to a friend, to help get them hooked on vaping.

    For the price, nothing beats a Roughstack.

    Dropping in to say "Hi" as a new roughstack owner. I already made a post about it in the general forum area, but I had no idea till now that there was a thread for roughstack owners.

    Thanks all for the knowledge.

    I originally bought a set of the 3.7 trustfire batteries. Sadly those batteries did not like the 1.5 ohm dual cartos I was trying to use. They work great for other cartos I had (Like a single coil 3.0 carto) but the dual ones those batteries just seemed to hate.

    On a whim I went to Frys to get a charger. My family was waiting in the car so I had to rush my purchase. I ended up getting a Tenergy pack and didn't realize the charger was only good for Tenergy Batteries.

    Oddly the Tenergy Batteries (two 3 volts) work great on all my cartos so far. So now I just have o toss up what I want to do with the trustfires I have.

    I already posted these pics in the General forum but I wanted to share the Shiny here to :)

    Hi!! :) I just saw your post in response to my post TODAY so I apologize for taking forever to reply!! I somehow missed it! Thank you so much for all this information! I think I'm getting it now! :D I thank you for taking the time to explain all this to me and also the other posters who also tried to explain this to me! :) I just got my Maxi RoughStack today and it's incredible!!! I'm sooo glad I got it!!! It's powerful on a 3.7v battery, and the vapor, TH and flavor is great!! I'm using Boge LR 2.0ohm cartos and the draw is perfect for me, not airy and not too tight, just right! :)

    Just got my Maxi RS in the mail this morning, went to the post office to intercept it so I didn't have to wait. This thing has quickly become my favorite PV, my VV box died earlier and I haven't bothered to recharge it (haven't put it down since I made it, until today). No problems so far, first day with it, wouldn't mind getting one with a finish other than tumbled...one thing about the tumbled finish is I'm really not worried about scuffing this bad boy lol.

    Hi TommyG! :) Congrats on your new Maxi RS!!! I'm glad you're really liking it! You made a good point about the advantage of buying the tumbled finish so you don't have to worry about it getting scuffed! :D One less thing to worry about is always good! :)

    Yeah, I do like the idea that I don't have to worry about it, but I would have chosen a nice paint finish if I hadn't seen reviews that only spoke of poor paint jobs with either runs or metal showing through. Has the quality in the paint improved at all, or are they not worth the money?

    That's a good question about the paint and I hope someone here can answer it! I just started following this thread a little over a week ago I think so I haven't heard anything about the paint.

    I like the metal finishes because I don't want to worry about the inevitable paint chipping, especially since mine come out to play. I wouldn't want chrome and fingerprints either. It'll pretty much look the same in a year, which I like. Of course, a variety of spray finishes, all the way up to truck bed liner, have been applied by ambitious RS users. I'd like glow in the dark someday!

    Yeah, I should just stick with my tumbled finish, it's my only PV (box mods not counting) that I don't have to worry about pocketing with my keys...still love this thing lol.

    Not specifically Roughstack specific, made myself laugh there, but this was just a great find when looking for a good case for my Roughstack.

    I swear it was like someone heard my prayers, improved upon what I wanted, then answered them.
