Ordered Brass Black... but looks more like Gun Colour ?
Hi,

I have ordered (and after some problems received) a brass black model of this tube mod.
But when I look at it, or compare it to other mods (different manufacturers) (I mostly order black) then it gives me the impression that it is more grey-ish/gun colour.

Can someone confirm, if the black is not dark black in the brass version but more like a dark grey, or if mine is just mis-labeled or something... I already was disappointed that the matching RDA in brass black has a totally other texture than the max mod. Looks terrible !

yeah, the RDA matches the first Tube, but not the second so much. As far as black vs. Gun Metal, they look exactly like the photos here. The Black isn't jet black, but the Gun Metal is easily discernible. If you had Gun Metal, you would have no doubts, as it isn't close to being black.
Insert idiotic mantra here.

not so much ?
the rda is matte and structured, like fat oilcolour-ish,
the tube is shiny high finished car-coating like... the combo looks like sht.
I remember that the photos at time of selling weren't too good, and you could not zoom... from afar they looked like they matched.
But now I have my doubts about my "black" problem.
I think on the WE i will make a photo... or 2.
I also recognize the fact that my eyes are not like 30 years before... so... we'll see.

No, I undersell...you are right, they dont match at all! I have the Red Crackle set of the Tauren. The rda and mod are a perfect match. The Tauren max went all "slick and thick and shiny", and is nothing like the OG Cerakote/ Bedliner style finish! I love them both, great mods!

Insert idiotic mantra here.

I didn't use it yet... too much hardware.
Tube-vaper do praise the button in the max. But I'm more in DNA-mods. Easier to work on daily bases, and you don't have to worry much about "security".

So I couldn't tell a difference ;-)

But I got the electrical side covered by profession ;-)

We'll guess I try new things if I can and if it looks promising.

But yeah, I could sell half of it and wouldn't miss it.
