    Well despite my setback last week with the Finder I ordered a Therion 166 (DNA250) tonight for a belated Christmas present to myself :D. Vape NW has them in stock and is running a 10% sale which brings the price down to $121 and change. The best part is they have the new Black Frame in stock (that's the one one I ordered).

    Lost Vape is also releasing some new covers: Carbon Fiber, Wood Dust Yellow, and one that looks like either the Croc or the Elephant on the Finder.

    I've been very happy with both the quality and aesthetics of my Lost Vape mods and I don't expect that to change with this mod. Ordering it from a USA company doesn't hurt either. From now on I plan to stick with USA companies when ordering mods. If you have an issue, exchanging or returning them for a refund is a lot simpler.

    The Therion I ordered with the new Black Frame and Black Brown Leather.

    This looks like Croc to me but I only found pictures not an actual listing

    I'm gonna order one but I want the one with carbon fiber inlays. Vapordna had them but sold out. I'm gonna have to wait. The black frame, carbon fiber inlays and carbon fiber door look so sweet. I need it in my life soon..lol

    I'm debating the black/black Carbon one...but I do enjoy the one I have...Pearl Coffee door...looks better in person than my Potato picture shows

    Only Knock I have against it, is the battery door. There is a small enough rattle to it...but I am sure I can remedy that by either opening or closing the mouth of the clam shell.

    I use my Triade 250 everyday. I've gotten used to the weight and feel of it. I like how long the 3 batteries last the whole day despite my chain vaping. And this mod just works with TC better than my evic vtc mini. But the battery door on my Triade 250 is a little funky. Sometimes I can feel it slip/slide a little and that was from day 1. This new Therion, however, has no such slip. I'm hoping the batteries won't loosen the way the battery door fits.

    As for paint issues which I was reading about in other threads, I can see the paint wearing thin at the bottom of the Triade. It doesn't bother me. Neither will the changing color of the leather because, well, that's what happens to leather when you use it. :) The pics @Johnnytraveler posted confirmed what I was thinking: that if the paint does chip, I'll just sand it all off and polish the mod until it's shiny; & I can always replace the leather on the battery cover.

    Yeah, I am torn on this. It looks beter and the door is tight but I prefer the time 3 batteries provide. Where all the Triad's chipped on me was the fingernail groove on the door. Should not have that issue with this either. Nonetheless I wish I knew how to polish it completely. I imagine it would be difficult if you are not skilled with metal work. The one from Bali I would pay that guy a lot to ship me one. Not going to Bali.

    I just received my Lost Vape Therion 166. So far it working like a charm, I set up my profiles and I'm vaping on it as I type this. I realy like the looks and feel of this mod. Unfortunately the extra Carbon Fiber battery door I ordered didn't arrive today. I'm hoping for tomorrow.
    Edit I just checked the tracking number on the Carbon Fiber door. It just arrived at my Post Office down the street.
    Updated Delivery Day: Saturday, December 31, 2016 :D

    I've only had the mod for about an hour, but so far so good. Here's a few quick pictures I took:

    I've been hunting the carbon inlays, I really think the original colorway with the carbon inlays and carbon door will look awesome.

    I have both the Purple and Red Ostrich for the Triade. I prefer the Red Ostrich over the Purple but I think they both look good.

    Happy New Year Everyone!

    Gonna grab this one when I get my next bonus but I definitely want the black frame with black inlay , hopefully it will be easier to discern the options when it's time since every site I have looked at has different names for the color schemes of the mod

    Vapordna had the all black therion with carbon fiber inlays and black elaphant leather door. They sold out in one day. I was to late. They also had the all black with purple ostrich. They sold out of that in a couple days. I ended up ordering the carbon fiber and elaphant leather from a chinese site because i couldnt find it anywhere else. Hopefully it doesnt show up broken. Lately people havnt had good luck with dna mods from china. Look at Steve and his finder situation. Wish me luck. Ill post pics when i get it. I paid the extra 15 bucks for express DHL. It says 3-7 days. 133 shipped. Not bad....

    Thank you my friend for the kind words. I'm glad I have it as well. It looks great, feels great in hand, and most importantly works great.

    PS I'm in you neck of the woods but not under happy circumstances. I sent you a PM. I hope you are doing well.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Enjoy! But isn't that a Finder? Still a nice setup, and I like that fire button.

    I have news on the Finder front. FT was giving me a hard time so I opened up a PayPal claim. The result was I could get a refund but only after sending it back to FT (Hong Kong address) on my dime. That would cost me a pretty penny. I was not amused.

    Now for the good news. I contacted Evolv again, explained the circumstances and they are taking care of me.

    It will be a cold day in Hell before I order from FT again (especially a mod). I never say never, but the way they handled it left a very bad taste in my mouth.

    I do like the look and feel of the mod so I'm glad I'm getting it fixed. I guess alls well that ends well.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Sucks that happened but I get u what u mean. Cheap prices come at a cost. Outside of slow shipping I've never had an issue with any China site yet

    Back 4 years or so I had a problem with a mod I ordered from FT (when I was living in AZ). They had me send it to a Florida address and refunded my PayPal account without any issues. I've noticed they seem to have changed over the last year or so and not for the better.

    I'm not saying all China sites are like that. I ordered some replacement glass tanks from GB about 6 months ago. Two came broken. I sent them a picture and they responded they were very sorry and processed my refund the same day. Their shipping is on the slow side, but if you have a problem they take care of you. Funny thing is a few years ago, they didn't seem as good. I'd say they changed for the better. Nothing is static, things are always evolving. That's why I try not to say things like I'll never order from them again, even if that's the way I feel at the moment.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    yeah it's tough for us here in the US to deal with shipping waits .. but we do it.. good prices and all - but if there isn't any provision made for handling any issues that occur in a timely manner, that's def a deal breaker situation.

    well I think it's dumb that they observe new years day today instead of Sunday when it was truly new years. no mail today. sad. plus I'm sick with the flu or something and need to get well before Wednesday so I'm ready for my 8hr drive up north.

    It takes about one to two months for anything to arrive in the Philippines, regardless of where it's shipped from because our customs people are nasty and our post office is beyond slow. And right now fasttech is taking rather long to get my items to Singapore post. It has been about 10 days and the only update on tracking is that Sing post has received the information about the shipment but necessarily the package itself.

    Anyway, the vape shop I visited had the black frame version. Really slick looking mod. I spent about 10-15 mins vaping & trying to decide between the two. The grey won only because I'm trying to get away from my default black.

    Thats awesome news. Now youll have both the finder and therion and we can get your opinion on which you like better. hehehe. I ordered the therion but might also order the finder. Im holding of on the finder for now, not becuase of your doa finder. That was just luck of the draw. Its bound to happen when you purchase enough dna mods. But the fact that i just dropped 135 on a Therion and 220 on a Yihi G-class. The g-class was a preorder but should be shipping any day now. Im really looking forward to both mods.

    I have been wanting one of these for a while now, but now that they have released the black frame ones, I pulled the trigger and ordered one, just like yours, Black frame with dark brown leather, and WOW it looks the TITS! I can't wait for it to arrive. I have heard nothing but rave reviews of this bad boy, and for 125$ shipped, I just couldn't resist....WOOTWOOPITY WOOT! CHEERS!

    So the Therion they had pictured wasnt the one they actually were selling. Im glad i figured this out before they shipped the silver frame one. I asked them to cancel my shipment and refund my money. They said thats fine and to check my account within 3 days. I cant seem to locate the one i want, they have the black frame with the wood inlays in stock but no place has the black frame with the carbon fiber inlays. Vapordna is the only place that had them but they have been sold out. I might have to settle for the wood inlays. Will see what happens...

    I like mine a lot, but I hate the battery door... The thing just doesn't stay put. No matter how I try to adjust the clam shell... just isn't snug.

    I attribute that to how the locking points are... the lower half of the battery door...just that one nub that latches sort of on the one side and nothing to really hold the door snug but one weak magnet up top...just way to much play.

    I don't have the therion but i have the triad and the battery door is the same way for me. doesn't feel like it fits right. thats why i felt the finder was a better quality (at least on the outside) I'd be curious to compare the finder 167 to the therion 167 and the finder 250 for the therion 250 thhough

    I'm not sure if I'm reading your post right but my battery door has 4 nubs (latches), 2 on the top, 2 on the bottom (1 on each side, top and bottom) and a magnet at the top center. I have no play on either door and it hasn't come off unless I was pulling on it (trying to take it off. My Triade doors are fine too. They all fit snugly.

    Mine does also Steve...but the door has never sat in their snug...that little tab with the locking pin as pictured above in my last post wasn't latching correctly, so the bottom was always loose... tried adjusting the clam shell to attach better, but it never worked...and I was just dealing with it, saying to myself fuck it, I'll just get used to it...but alas my OCD got the better of me, and that little wedge made all the difference.

    Just cancelled my order for the silver therion fit this.

    The black frame with the wood inlay looks classy to me. Just have to find a good price on it.

    I saw this the other day on pre-order from a UK site. I really like the way it looks. First time I've seen this color of battery door. They had three I've never seen before but this is the one I liked best. I really like LV's mods in general and the Black frame in particular! This will be mine even though I need another mod like I need another hole in my ... :giggle: :cheers:
