    By mainstream I mean it is in stock ready for anyone to purchase. Not hidden Facebook pages with 1 year wait. Must be DNA250C or SX550J., Preferably 2x18650.

    Last I knew was Axis but now defunct. Vicious Ant SX550J is $700+ which is crazy for a production Mod IMO. Have one nonetheless.

    Minikin Kodama was custom chip. It was fine and nicely priced IMO. It is no longer in production and I have 3 anyhow.

    Is there anything left of this nature online $400 or less? Even Gene or Dicodes or any good chip is okay.

    Prefer not used but know where to get them.

    Thank you

    Actually I just found a steal(IMO). To my liking and shall satisfy this time! Asmodus has a completely Stabwood DNA75 in Purple for $170! Yes, that may seem like a lot to some but nothing for what it is. I vape at 465F/21.3W so absolutely fine. I am taste, not clouds. Plus tired of $1,000 fines setting off smoke alarms and FDP being dispatched for no reason. Moreover than the fine may divert them from true emergency. Honestly they should fine $25,000 and people would most likely absolutely never do it. Vape as we please but dispatch FDP nonsense is sickening IMO. So, relegated to very low power.
    Reason, this home has photoelectrics that are monitored

    I am good with this but any other ideas welcome. In perspective Vicious Ant DNA75=$300+. I am ordering it right now but willing to get something else as well right now.

    You can make one with pretty basic tools and readily available materials. Those stabwood DNA kits are pretty but way overpriced.

    I wouldn’t spend over 45 for a dna75 non c device now. But you do you.

    Can take 21700s

    You can buy the board (250C or 75C) and a stabwood housing and build one, I think he was saying

    Thanks Pegleg. I liked the Asmodus better and $50 less. Ordered it. See I cannot build one. I was once very skilled with just about anything. I am now older and have advanced Parkinson's disease. Otherwise back in the day I would built a nicer one than any. Well maybe not Top Hat or Carlos creation.

    That is the issue though. tired of secret FB pages and year wait, lottery ETC. Pegleg, that one is very nice too don't get me wrong. A 75C with 2670 should not be so much really. That one is not terrible either quite frankly. $200-ish. it is the 250C or SX550J that will run absurd prices. As I mentioned Vicious Ant is offering a production unit for $700+, Customs running $1,500++ if you can even get one new.

    Used these Schmucks asking 10 grand or so LOL. Jwill, you are correct it is obscene. It is par for the course though. I don't set the prices and agree they are unfair. I guess whatever the market. Of course don't have to buy them either.

    I am so stupid I destroyed all my custom Mech tubes. Including Otto Carter one. Boy that was dumb. Threw them in bag with juice years ago now rusted together heap of trash.

    I really like Asmodus. US based and stand behind their stuff. Their cheap stuff is made in China of course. They are I guess the only deal left in really good Stabwood. If you call that a deal. BTW, if you want everything on the Mod or have a MAC their chip is plenty good. Not DNA250C but at least like Gene.

    That is it AFAIK. I figured check with you Guy's in case of something I was not aware of. Like Peglegs entry.The only thing is I wanted the entire thing wood with just slim metal faceplate. Since I use such low wattage in here I figured the 75 was a way beter deal. It was certainly less money than the Minikin Kodama's.Do you see they sold out one for $1,500? they once had one for $25K LOL. OH, Diagram it is a "C". this is Stabwood, naturally big bucks for whatever reason. Metal minikin $35.

    Thanks Guys

    I've mixed feelings about Asmodus - their stab wood does look nice, but it is All made in China - they just have an office in California. I had two issues with the two mods I had - bad machining in my Luna squonker's battery bay which caused poor battery connection - I had to either mend that myself or pay about $23 to ship it to California for repair; and the EOS II seemed to simply not fire at all if the batteries got low. Rather than step down the power as I would expect, it would simply do nothing at all. Hell of a mod otherwise, though.

    Glad you found a nice mod :)

    They told me they make the Stabwood cases in California. the Electronics are Chinese except DNA of course. Have no idea if they told the truth though.
    My Stabwood devices from them are some of the better Stabwood even compared to many custom jobs.

    I just bought a Asmodus minikin V2 Kodama..... On eBay..... I got lucky and picked it up with a 25mm Gold Dead Rabbit RTA ......

    The guy told me it sits on his desk.... He wanted $350.00 for it.......

    So I told him they are $299.00 and now they have a 15% off for Halloween discount and I get an additional 10% as a return customer......

    So he asked me what would be a fair price ? I said $175.00 and he sent me a buy now offer of $175.00

    Had bad headache sorry. Dang, don't you have a smoke alarm lol. See mine are monitored and also Photoelectric. I have to vape at 23W or less. I would really want Fireluke with Mesh but no go in here. Can't go outside. In 20 days it will be 20 below zero here.already+14F. I actually have none of those Mods except G class and ordered Bro Science on your recomendation.

    Wondering what you think about chipsets? Is a Noname as good as DNA or SX to you? Do you like DNA or SX better? I feel that is a tossup. Both great in different ways. I had wished they produced the original G class pictures. Almost was a custom Mod. I figured you are the right Guy to ask! You actually have more Mods,Tanks than me! I always feel someone feels bad or insulted but I see cool to speak with you lol.

    What are your high end Mods or just the Kodama and Bro Science?
    IMO the Minikin is a very good chipset. I mean they sold out 25 Grand snow Wolf.

    Thanks

    The Broscience is good if you got the DNA 250c upgraded to the 4s Lipo....... That's bad ass right there......

    I live my SX mini g class..... That's a fine high class job.....

    The Minikin is also amazing, I have a custom that's 100% all Stabwood no resin..... That's for Sunday's and special occasions......

    The nicest hitter is the GTRS Vboy that sonbitch Hits hard for an under $100.00 mod.....

    I have an N1 custom NLPWN that's a 5s Lipo that fucker is baddest, but can't carry it around it's huge.....

    I like the DNA 250C the best with the 500 or 550 chip.... That fucker in power+ and 80 watts you better hold on, because your going for a ride..... And it fires also .05 ohm builds......

    It depends on money, how hard you vape and how bad Rta's and Rda's you have....

    And do you hit hard......

    Thanks Manny. I just fucking busted the Minikin Kodama Stabwood and it was a limited edition $$$. I got juice in the power button. Not sure how to remove face plate as there is no screws. Although in my experience if that happens just let it sit on the buttons on table few months. Paranormal DNA250C looks nice but junk. Had 2 quit in a month. Minikin Kodama very nice. I hope it revives itself. Could use alcohol too. Then wait 2 days. I have some customs Stabwood but hardly use afraid to break. Yes, I got Bro Science 250C 4S. 5S is nuts for me too big. You can get Lipo's at Hobbytown real good ones too. I would vape at 80W. used too. Now FDP issues with them and at 21W lol.

    One of mine looked very similar. Had gold colored hardware. Was numbered edition. I put it in bag with 1/2oz silica canister. At least I know they will fix these and most likely not charge me due to what it cost to begin with. you stole that Bro, Those are $349.

    One thing I like about just 2 cell Lipo in magnesium or alloy Mod is super lite. 2+x18650 or 27600 gets heavy. I quit lifting beer so I can just pump Mods now!

    Did you notice it hits harder than DNA unless you mess with escribe?

    Oh, those are not the ones I have. Mine are "Boost". I could have had a new one, no RTA for $200 once. You got a very good deal.
