    My sxk haku zeta flooding issue was my fault. I wicked it like the insider for some reason. Rebuilt it with the cotton coming out the wick slots and trimmed it close, then fluffed. Now that issue fixed. Clear boro black gasket issue is better with 2nd black gasket but not 100% gone. I tried the haku with no chimney insert and got hot splatter on my tongue.

    If you're getting spitback maybe you need to use a bit more cotton or try a different wire. I havent had any spitback at all with my Xeta builds which have been some round wire but mainly fused clapton.

    Except for right after rewicking and priming I have never gotten spitback on either of my Xetas. I wick tight, but not TOO tight and usually raise the juice flow screws a hair. cut maybe 3 mm or so outside the ports.

    Believe it or not I use the old plastic coin thing Kanger gave for the NEBox to get the battery compartment open to screw in/unscrew the key on my BB LMAO

    Yea I think the spit back was from my incorrect wicking first build flooding. I may take it out next build and also try smoothing out the airflow holes in the bottom. Got some strange airflow noises on this one:blush:. Im liking it more than the kanger or insider.:thumbs:

    One thing Haku should have done a bit differently imho is make the top of the wicking ports on the barrel more rounded. Not that I've had problems with mine, but it seems to make more sense than the squared off configuration they went with.

    Leaves corners for potentially loose cotton in there. More rounded would have been easier for the cotton to fill.

    still waiting on my titanium xeta and after mixing 8 bottles of liquid today i didn't have the energy to tackle one of my other RBAs.
    went with the north bridge and a 0.6 nord coil. had a bit of leaking last 'build' but this one is keeping up fine with 80VG at 21W.
    haven't taken one of my BBs to work for a while. it's ready for tomorrow.
    will get another north bridge when i have the cash as I'm often quite lazy.

    How do like the North Bridge? Been tempted, since I may end up with excess coils if/when my Nord's die before I use up my coils. (Vapocalypse planning isn't easy!). Plus the shipping from Canada is pretty high for just that item.

    I've found it the best of the 4 coil adaptors I've tried. cheapest i can get it for and shipped here is £25 (bought in and shipped to the UK)

    I personally have not.
    That has the threaded key piece integrated into the drip tip base. It says it's for the SXK BB so it should work.
    It has a bigger bore than the standard key and the drip tip part looks pretty big too. By Billet Box standards at least. I'd say it's more for dtl, also by Billet Box standards.

    Haha,yeah.Never fails though,i know it will happen every time i make an order from China haha.I think they must of just listed those though,i scanned through the BB listings on their page to see if there was anything else i wanted to add,and i didn't see these then,although it's possible i overlooked them,but i don't think so.
    Oh well,gives me an excuse to place another order haha.

    The worst is when it's something I've been planning on getting from a certain site and I remind myself a dozen times not to forget on the next order and I still forget. :confused:

    I picked them up and yes it fits. Can be used for dl or mtl depending how you have your RBA set up. Haven't tried it with a coil and bridge but I like the draw a lot.
