    It's the one of the main reasons why I'm constantly eyeing the moonraker....the lift thingee is brilliant! but but it's soooo expensive :) and always out of stock somehow.......but I guess one of these days I'll cave and it will be mine :) but not this already waaaaay to expensive christmas season LOL

    @Katdarling I'm looking up the tank you mentioned as we speak, but somehow the google search thingee thinks I want to buy a car :)

    I got fortunate, Dru, or else I'd not have gotten it either. There's a Facebook group where I've seen some decent sales. We can talk if you ever wish...

    Regarding the Egg-Rolls, it took me some searching but I finally found them. I kept trying to find Joytech (I should have been using "Joye").

    Joye eGo ONE V2 Mega Tank - Stainless Steel

    It comes in black too. I kept clicking on Kat's pic but it didn't do anything. ;-)

    Welp, dahlink, if you can get a car for $26 (and free shipping).... I say, GO FOR IT! :D

    Yes, that is the correct one (the V1.5). It really is a sweet little tank. I have no idea if it's even worth mentioning, but the tank is not glass. It's acylic PMMA. FT has a coupon code (MAP) which gives you a few dollarinos off.

    Thanks, Kat.

    And 15% off Egg-Rolls too (code SUPER15). I know, I know - it's like a buck-and-a-half... :blink:

    Any1 perhaps have the obs engine mini, and can check if it fits the xvostick? (Or Ystick)

    Just curious, how tight can you get the draw on this tank? For instance, compare it to the draw on a Kayfun Lite+. Anywhere in the ball park?

    Hey Jim. At its absolute tightest setting I find it to be too tight (tighter than the KFL2+, which I still use and enjoy). I have mine set about 20% from lowest, which is only slightly airier (for me) than the aforementioned KF. Some might say it's the same, actually.

    You know the old saving, "Taste is subterranean."

    Did I mess that up? :facepalm: ;)

    I've been told I have the taste of a troglodyte so it sounds good to me. :) Is there a rebuildable coil for the tank by chance?

    Be careful you don't let those troglodytes get too high. They should test them with your cholesterol. :unsure:

    Technically, the answer is "no", but the CLR coils are (a) ridiculously easy to re-wick, and (b) supposedly pretty easy to re-coil too (lots of vids out there). I can personally attest to the former, but not the latter (yet).

    Coolio. Mayhaps I'll give it a test drive and see how I like it. Thanks for the info. :)

    My pleasure, Jim. For what it may be worth, the paint jobs (while quite fun) are pretty bad. For longevity, stick with the SS version. That's even if you care (which I only marginally do).

    Some people are funny about stuff like that though, and I didn't want you to be caught off guard.

    You can set it to zero air flow if that's your thang, Dashman. ;)

    I will chime in with my opinion. These have become an absolute favorite tank these days. SO easy, in every respect, and not a drip drop leak in site.

    The rewicking is almost TOO easy, and the rebuild is pretty basic stuff. (And about as FAR away as the VVWTF thing as one could get...)

    Lovin' the Egg Rolls and I can not lie.

    OOOOOOOOO! And talk about perfection in an XVO!!!!

    I can't believe I forgot about that one significant bonus (thanks, Kat). Hand in hand they surely do go.

    And because they very rarely even weep, the "frequent" cleanings have become infrequent.

    OK, for those who where wondering:
    The OBS engine mini fits on the Xvo and Ystick:

    [​IMG]

    It seems ideal, as it has the airflow on the top, so you can adjust the AFC whilst it is in the side-by-side, and it does not leak from the bottom, so no more cleaning the atty space. Big wins!

    But unfortunatly there is one drawback: it is very tight, so pretty hard to get the topfill open when it is in the mod. It is do-able, but not easy.
    Also the black one screws in the mod just so that the fill opening is on the wrong side :-(
    So best is to give it a few turns so it lifts a bit and the fill hole is in the front, and then fill it.....such a shame....it was almost the ideal side-by-side atty.

    I also tried it in the Knight V2, and there the fill hole sits nice at the front, but still pretty tight. Maybe over time the fill cap get's a bit looser and it will be easier.

    In the mean time I'm going to try some of these:
    $3.52 Replacement POM Heat Insulation Gasket for Atomizers (5-Pack) 5-pack at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    To see if I can lift it a bit and if it will make a difference in the orientation of the fill hole.
