Squonk
Does this have a squonk pin like the authentic does? None of these clones seem to have squonking pins which is one of the main things they were designed to do.

Doesn't look like a squonk pin but it looks pretty easy to replace the solid one with a hollow. Like many, I've got an order in for 5 of them (SKU 6050800). They're on their 3rd "restocking" with an ETA of 4 days. Do have a bunch from Fat Daddy (thanks to another forum member).

Converted the golden Goon (SKU: 5757501 - works with many Goons) in a couple of minutes and really like the performance (and appearance). Did the same with a Double Vision and am pleased with the results.

PS: Pretty sure the pin is solid, even though it has a hex hole on top. The second picture shows a solid 510. Someone noticed and mentioned such a pin with a hex hole on another RDA.

I am going to take a big fat guess. I downloaded the photo and then zoomed in to the pin on the third picture. If you were to look at the inside of the screw where the hex end there is two black impressions that move to an off colored grey or gray. If it wasn't a squonk pin it should have remain a straight color across.

I know the black impressions are because of the shadow made by the lighting, but the color across the inside of the pin should of maintained a constant color. Since it didn't it implies that there is a hollow camber within the screw itself.

Also at the other end of the pin it looks tapered as what would be expected from a squonk pin.

Like I said before big fat guess. My fatness could be correct though. Scientifically speaking.

Plus the regular screw that is pictured in the mod is a flat head screw so it is a squonk pin. No more fat guessing. Sciences has won again.

if it weren't a squonk pin why provide a hex screw replacement 510 pin when
1/ the one installed is a flat head and
2/ it's extremely rare, to be given a replacement 510 pin and
3/ as said above it's advertised elsewhere with a bf pin and
4/ I wish fasttech's staff would get their shit together and actually learn about the products they are selling, list the products specs correctly such as provide thread measurements and describe anything a photograph can't and lastly sack the monkey they have taking holiday snaps and finally employ a real photographer.
(rant over) :D
