    Well, I guess I get to go first on this new thread.

    Today's VapeMail.

    [​IMG]

    Since I've got a shiny/new (well, fairly new anyway) TC mod, I needed some other TC wire options to go with it. I picked up some 0.4mm (for "tanks") and some 0.5mm (for "drippers") Ti wire from Sweet Spot Vapors. I downloaded their TCR curves and installed them on my DNA 200.

    I put two 9 wrap spaced coils (0.13Ω) made from the 0.4mm wire into my Velocity Mini clone to replace the 28g Ni200 build I had in the mod. It may just be psychosomatic but I swear that there was a metallic taste to the Ni200 that I don't get with the SSV Ti wire. I'm currently vaping Mother's Milk at 40w/430°. Other than a bit of a sharp note I get from Mother's Milk in a dripper (vs a tank), I like the flavor much better than I did on roughly the same Ni200 build.

    Gonna vape on the SSV Ti for a while. My next TC frontier is a roll of UD 316L Stainless Steel. Have already procured some TSR CSV files from the Evolv forums and a screen to go with it.

    I've brought the Provari out of retirement. Picked up a 510 version of the Kabuki.

    [​IMG]

    While I like the flavor and vapor production with a 1.8 ohm coil at 5.1v, the whole setup is a little... janky. The 510 is "adjustable" according to reviewers, but it's really not. The adjustment on the 510 center pin is really intended to take up the slop that results from variances in length on the Nautilus atomizers. It is entirely possible that a short atomizer could result in setup where you can't make contact on your device. On the flip side, a long atomizer head could result in a a non-flush fit in your device.

    The 510 was actually a bit short for the Provari. I compensated by pulling the center pin out of the atomizer head just a bit. Now I'm up and going. I haven't had any issues with the P3 connection, but since I see where you could have an atomizer head that's too long and the tank won't screw together completely. A short atty head shouldn't be much of an issue since the tank will "close" even though the threads aren't bottomed out.

    Wow, that's an odd way of setting up a tank. At least you were able to work around it.

    WP_20151208_001.jpg Look what showed up.

    Build quality on the velocity style deck is meh. I think all the post holes are different sizes and they drilled them all the way through. The rest looks good though.

    I guess you already know you like it because you tried @Snert 's but let us know how it's working out for you when you get it up and running. It looks sharp.

    Actually I used it all day today. I am loving it. I really like the customization I can do with the screens. Surprisingly I am Vaping at lower watts and getting better flavor from my crown tank on the reuleaux than I was ever getting from my raptor box

    Nice. I know I got really good flavor and vapor off of the nickle coils on the Zephyrus tank. I ran them on the eVic VT at 60 watts and 600 degrees. I got better performance off of those coils than I did the ones I built myself, but I didn't try temp control coils in it other than the stock ones.

    Very nice!

    Since you've used a similar chipset with the eVic... is the RX 200 performing the same?

    I think it does, yes. The settings are a little different for the better. Like with the evic mini to change the wattage in TC mode it round robins but with this one if you click the power button 4 times while in the TC mode you can scroll up or down using the up and down button so that's a nice change.

    Oh and it is comfy to hold and the weight is okay. It's pretty close to my steam crave squonker, maybe just a little heavier but nothing that is going to bother me.

    Thanks guys, been using it all day and my battery is still more than half. Granted I don't vape at real high crazy wattage like @trlrtrash13, but still this thing is awesome. Gonna be a nice one to take to AZ when I visit my Mom.

    I have been playing with the Goliath V2 and the OBS T-VCT I got. After Eric (OriginVape) helped me a bit with the Goliath I actually like it better than the VCT. The VCT is fine but the airflow is a little more restricted than I like (but I am a nut when it comes to lots of air flow) It's also just a bit taller than I like but it is very pretty and it does vape well and sure is easy to fill etc etc. Gonna use it some more and then decide if I want to sell it off. Or trade for something else maybe. I do like the Goliath V2 very much and have added that to my daily rotation.

    nice @debinnv the more I look at the crius the more I am tempted to try one out.

    Very color coordinated. Where'd you get that drip tip? I see a lot of people with them or similar, but I always forget to ask.
