I knew going in that titanium is a terrible metal for a tube mod, which I'm pretty sure is contributing to it too. It's light and strong, but doesn't conduct electricity very well compared to stainless, brass and copper. I checked it out to make sure it looked safe and clean and got one hit out of it. MASSIVE voltage drop (not much vapor) and very hot button. .1 Kanthal build. Back when this was made that was fearsome low though too. Put it back on my SS Panzer and away she went. The titanium version of this mod is pretty much all show and no go. Would make a cool collectors piece though.
