    They sure are. This is the Valkyrie that I've lusted for, for 3 yrs, but will never own:

    But just looking at pics of it online doesn't really communicate the thing I like best about it: it's so damn small!

    But, it's a hybrid, so fairly dangerous, and it has ZERO well, so it would be drip for every hit, total PITA. Not worth it.

    I get the feeling you're conflating a true hybrid and its dedicated topper, with the common "hybrid-style" tops for standard mech tubes... accepting any standard 510 atty which may, or may not, have a sufficiently protruding center positive pin.

    I've never handled a proper hybrid mech, so... apologies if there's a risk hazard there that I'm unaware of. ;)

    I don't really know, TBH. I've always had to shake my head regretfully at it because of the total lack of any sort of well, so it would require a drip for every hit, pretty much. That's just too much damn trouble; I'm used to my Achilles RDA, which holds as much as the clearos I started with -- 2.5ml! :D

    Andria... I even snipped your post to only quote your statement about the dangers of hybrid mods. ;)

    RDA dripping is either a chore or a joy, depending, but that's not what I was asking you about. :D

    As I said, I don't really know. I know that's a hybrid mod, but the hybrid nature is a secondary consideration; my major objection to that mod, gorgeous as it is, is the lack of well.

    That's better.

    You've stated at least twice (?) in this thread alone, that to your knowledge hybrids are inherently dangerous.

    I suspect you are simply unaware of the differences between an actual hybrid mech's direct-to-battery connection design, and the design used by 510 threaded "hybrid-style" caps... unfortunately also commonly called simply "hybrid".
    They are worlds apart.

    I agree an RDA-only mod isn't for everyone (I have a dozen nice RDAs I never use, for much the same reason), but you're repeating bad data... and that's beneath you.

    'Nuff said. :)

    Do you, really?

    What mis-information do you think she was trying to convey?

    Are you playing the childish pedant? Or the ignorant fool?
    Is this "answer questions with questions" day?

    Do I need a scorecard? :rolleyes:

    Andria wasn't in need of a White Knight charging in. ;)

    Maybe not, but I never turn it down. Snakey's always good for a giggle, anyway. :giggle:

    People like you are one reason why putting up with all the interwebz idjits is totally worth it. :) Every now and then, you run across a jewel. :)
