This time it's DOVPO with the College DNA60.

Mentioned elsewhere, this one doesn't do anything for me style-wise.
It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

It does nothing for me either. Dovpo trying to appear high end and charging double the price of what it's products are worth. Got greedy after the YT co-signed and shoved down everybodys throats promotions/product placements hit pay dirt.

Interesting that the OP titles the mod as "Yet an other SBS mod".

Indeed it does seem as if manufacturers are (again) trying to push the SBS as the next trend.

Of course, whether we'll see a glut of new SBS mods spew onto the (affordable end) market by the end of the year is anyone's guess. And who will be first out of the gates with a 21700 SBS I wonder?

And here is where taste differs. Style-wise this is one of the only SBS mods that appeals to me.
We can't agree on everything.

Agree 1000 %. Also, apart from the ugly design, and FAT SBS, the screen in the bottom is not recessed back which is a Big flaw imho.

Cool. Nothing wrong with that! :-)

Do you actually plan to get one, or wait to see what else the market might throw out?

Single 18650 are not for me so SBS mods are of no interest to me. I have the eleaf aster which can be considered a big SBS mod and a 10$ movkin on the way which is a super super big SBS mod. I like big mods, it's just the way it is.

DNA 60, USB, all great and a step in the right direction. The styling is whatever, nothing offensive, just a little blah and uninspired. Of course I've ordered it....blah and DNA is still escribe enabled!
What does he mean when he says words?
