I put a note to make my 902 cartos XL which is why they came black and not stainless. They do fit the 902 gear, but they look long (I don't think any longer than an atty and cart though). Where they come in real handy is on a LUX with a long cone - no need for a drip tim on the end.
I got a pack of stainless Sidesho cartos. I have enough of the 902s right now but they'll be next on my list. For anyone interested, they look really cool all shiny with no sticker.
So you have the XL carts in hand? Can you tell a difference from the standard carts?
In hand. I've only been using it today and I usually like to break them in for at least a full day. Here's what I think I can say about the LUX XL.... It tastes almost exactly like the original 902 carto, which I liked and a lot of people liked. To me though both tasted a little sweet almost like it wasn't burning as hot as an atty, where the new Sidesho and 902 cartos taste closer to an atty to me. That's just preference, but like I said, I still liked the old 902 and I do this as well. Can I tell the difference you asked? Yes. I assume because of it being 1.5 Ohms and dual coil, it has a stronger hit and more vapor. A lot of LUX users are going to love these, especially considering it holds about 2ml of juice! I have a tough decision though. More juice and vapor, or the taste I prefer and my drip tip, which I love on the end of the LUX.
