Just got mine this morning. Came in super clean and shinny. No burs, all perfect. No scratches. It's 20x1. Confirmed using authentic Senio dripper and clone Senio dripper. That switch just took the throne away from the GP Paps brass clone switch. So smooth, battery rattle adjustment, throw adjustment etc. Tested this one against many 20x1 clones and combos using it's switch and or tube. The XXIX is the mod with the best conductivity I own. Logo/engraving is almost invisible, I like that. Can't wait for it to tarnish. Not the threads, I've greased them. :)

I like the SS El Gigante so much I had to get the copper version. I was surprised that the copper version only has a slight advantage in terms of v-drop over the SS. Marginal. Well machined, super clean out of the box. The slanted top cap is a bit more slanted and ends at a pefect 22mm while my SS version is more like 23mm. Great very versatile 26650 mod. 20x1 threaded top cap. A-1

20x1 top cap insert Smooth switch Small for a 26650 Beveled top cap to 22mm
This is my 2nd 26650 mod. The first was the Mutant, from FT also. Found it too big, button too hard & crunchy etc. Gave it to someone else. The El Gigante does not dissapoint at all! It is all that the Mutant was not. Does not feel big, slanted cap makes it look nice with 22mm atomizers. Switch is smooth and easy to press. And it's screw in flush finish design is a great idea. Top cap is perfect. The 20x1 insert allows to mount any 20x1 threaded atomizers like the Senio dripper, the ELM dripper, the Raptor V22 dripper and many others. Was not sure about the logo but in person it is not that visible. Adds grip to a tube that could be slicky. And I like it's message. If FT gets the copper version I've seen at other vendors, I'll get one in a milisecond.

PROS
All is good if you're buying it for parts
CONS
Switch with no venting vertical grooves (defective)
Received a defective switch with no venting grooves. Contacted FT and they sent me a replacement one. With the same defect! O_O Rinse/repeat... I now have four defective switches! I hope they did not ship defective non venting switches to customers who are not aware of the need for venting in mechanical mods. As for me, I'll keep the unit for parts.

For those who like the small form factor of an 18350 mod, this one is amazing! Tried my Kayfun Lite on it, in nano mode, and it works perfectly. So this is the v2. Threads are 20x1 so I can even use my Versa dripper with it. I've never handled an original, but from all the detailed photos I've seen, this one is identical. And it is made of real stainless steel. ;)
