gaudy appearance built down to a price obviously
Chromed brass doesn't make this thing look the best, but it works very well as a KF clone. It got stuck to my mod very very tight and the thing almost fell apart trying to get it free because it's pretty thin and flimsy. Never used the stock coil, it had some NR wire in it which was strange!? Has a whistling sound through the airhole due to it's sharp edges, personally I found it best to block the airhole completely, remove the grub screw for air flow control and use the grub screw hole for the air inlet, worked a charm for the draw I liked. I used it for a week with my own 1.5ohm coil and silica until it got stuck on my mod and it kind of bent and fell part trying to separate them, losing some chrome plating. But I took the opportunity to make a 28g 8 turn 1.2ohm chimney coil and cotton wick and now it's still vaping like a champ despite it's battle scars. Never had any leaks or flooding or filling problems.

Reverse threaded lock ring good threads
CONS
fixed firing pin Soft, easy to dent tubes and switch cap to make them out of round
Very impressed with this, I've heard of threading problems but mine (ordered 9th Oct IIRC) arrived perfect. It is one of the best mods here for sure. My only problem is the non adjustable firing pin, but I know about the mod for that. Also, this is my fault as I didn't know the locking ring was reverse threads and I was messing about trying to fit a kick to use with an 18350 battery, when the tubes dropped onto my desk they got slightly bent out of round so doesn't thread so good now (was originally really fine and good). Worst thing was the copper got bent, so when I put it a battery I had to force it a bit, which shaved off the battery coating and started autofiring (I've since fixed it and I know the copper is going to be soft - it was all my fault). Mod was tight on some batteries so be wary of that, anything too tight forced in might shave off the battery insulation and do the same thing even if the copper isn't bent, as the copper threaded edge is thin and sharp anyway. But besides that, very happy with the build how it was delivered, and the switch.

No problems with it at all
CONS
preinstalled wicks are rubbish
Tried it with the preinstalled wicks - no idea why it has two wicks with one air hole (also tried the trident clone too which was good). This one I had to remove the coils and built my own coil with my own wick and wire. After that, I have had no problems with it, vapes well with a single contact micro coil. I drilled the airhole out to 1.5mm and I would go larger than that, a bit too airy but that's the smallest sharp drill bit I had.

Useful if you want a cheap steel tank atty
CONS
Really tight air hole Needs non resistance coils Needed to be clean up heaps
As others mentioned, really tight airhole, about 0.2mm at the bottom of the positive post. I used oxy torch tip cleaner files to file it up to about 0.7mm very easily though. I ordered this over a month ago, and would probably not have today, as I would have bought the kayfun clone instead. But the steel tank version of this is good if you don't want a plastic tank rocket/kayfun clone. Coils that come with it are useless, measured out at 3.8ohm and doesn't look like any non resistance wire was fitted to the installed wick, or the spare premade wick. None supplied either (there's a bag with some wire, but that measures out at 28ohm on my meter so is not non-resistance). But if you get some non resistance wire and make your own coils (or try these apparently https://www.fasttech.com/products/1353407), and file out the air hole and like this style of atty, it's not bad for steel tank fans. These types of attys are fiddly though, I mainly bought it to teach myself how to build them. Atty was a bit stained/marked, threads too with something. But it cleaned up OK with soapy water and some steel wool.
