    Have you tried the Crossbow I hear it is a true MTL (no personal experience I use bridges wide open)

    I have the standard Kanger, the Triton setup, the Exocet, the Insider, the Vapeshell, the Crossbow, the Xeta and the KRMA. I do not have a Vapesnail.

    Of the ones I do have, I still love the Xeta the most. I have 2. After 3 tanks at low wattage mtl, when I go to rebuild it, I take out the key and the boro falls out when I flip it over. Zero moisture in the well.

    It will do true mtl too. AND true rdtl. All in the way you set it up and yes, the juice flow screws do indeed work as intended.

    All that said, the Snail may blow it outta the water. I can't comment intelligently on that. The KRMA did not in my opinion.

    As long as you're careful with that positive post clamp, I don't see how anybody could wrong with a Xeta :cool:

    I have not, I heard the two halves come apart too easily. I was going to try it though, just with everything going on, I have been focused on getting the box's. :|

    Okay, if I was looking at buying a new Haku Xeta, and a new Crossbow, preferably authentic, where would I order them from? :?:

    I'm in the wrong thread. Sorry about that. Mine are clones, but the SXK and YFTK are copied to a T right down to the weak positive clamp. SXK gives you a spare, but if you're careful it won't break. At least neither of mine have. There was a guy on POTV who had both and said he could barely tell the difference and they vape identically.

    As far as I know you can only get the authentics in the Facebook groups.

    Kas don't know about the Crossbow 2 halves coming apart...in the Boro your O rings will hold it together and why not try the clones before forking out all that cash. The Mission KRMA bridge IMO is a tight MTL too.

    I have tried the crossbow clone and there are definetely quality issues around it that I'm certain are not present in the authentic.

    On the clone, the RBA only fits in one way since the whole atomizer is machined at an angle. Hard to explain this, but the whole thing is tilted. When the atomizer is in, there is always a visible seperation between the top and botton because of this (although it does not flood).

    There are also issues with the airflow. I like a good MTL draw, but out of the box, the clone draws like sucking on a siphon hose. Some of this can be due to the insulator in the post being rotated. But, I personally think the air hole has been undersized. Since the airflow is so small, the plastic reducers really do nothing. I drilled mine to 1mm and it improved things.

    IMHO it is not fair to judge the authentic by the clone.

    THIS.

    IMHO calling them clones is a nicety.

    They are counterfeits. Plain and simple.

    Nobody refers to any other counterfeit products as clones...there aren’t “clone Louis Vuitton hand bags”...they’re counterfeits, and typically land their purveyors in legal trouble.

    That being said, I do understand why someone may buy a clone for cheap, to see if the idea of the device is even feasible to want to use.

    Borrowed a KFL+ clone wayyyyyyy back when, when I was ready to take the leap from cartos to rebuilding.

    After learning that I could do it, I immediately dropped the money for an authentic and gave the clone back to its owner.

    All THAT being said, I do not judge others for their decisions on how they spend their money.

    Sorry to be all doom and gloom...

    But that sounds VERRRRRRRY ominous.

    EDIT: I finally saw the post! The Ultem buttons look really cool, but I still like the stock button more.

    Their post just sounded like a “we need to talk” text message from a lover...

    That is a good thing, it increases the chances of getting one. :)

    KAS

    Edit : Okay they actually really did post a massive update on the site, very cool. Also I really miss Doug Dino's unique way of wording things and adding humor. I think I will try for one of those fish eye buttons. :|

    Well it looks like there is nothing up for sale this week, they did say that they were reducing the amount available during this pandemic. I hope they are back up soon. :unsure:

    I spoke with her last night, KAS, and yes - it's the 11th. She said it was posted somewhere (I think on their webpage). Next week, hopefully back to semi normalcy.

    This bites.

    I didn't ask, Unc (sorry). The last I saw they were still available. They must have just recently sold out.

    I did see that last week, but I guess I missed the part, about last weekend being the the last batch going up until the 11th. :|
