    meh, of course. could have saved about $18 but if red were the only option I would have probably passed. my 2 x silver rsq should be in the mail late this afternoon. I already got a DR SQ(22) and a Bonza coiled and ready to go on top of them.

    "Huh, how 'bout that?" *grinning* That's kind of next on my list to 'learn to create'. Think I'll start using three (3) strands of 30 awg NiChrome 80.

    Are you sure Skunkworks 'retired' all the Blackbirds? Thinking I recall something and was told by that one something something with erm *ahem* off books *cough*. Oh, yeah I remembered now, what I think I remember here is false, please overlook my error in memory. Yes, yes, all the Blackbirds are scrap, that is correct.

    :deadhorse::snapoutofit: We need to arrange for Bob to destroy this evil Bill person. We keep getting mail for Bill that somehow magically steals all our money. Keep asking the wife what the fuck the freeloader does. She tells me if we don't pay they'll let us go cold, without a house, no food and other dire stuff like that. Told her we ought to call the cops, claim we're held hostage, then I thought about it the cops would help Bill. There's no winning or coming out with any hope for losing. Best way to win? Don't play the fucking game. Unfortunately, ... we're starting to lose our choice in playing it or not.

    I'm going to talk to Bob, he needs to kick some ass.

    Yeah 3 loops butt that's 6 stands really lol. It's really really easy once you get it down. Smaller gauge just sucks because it takes forever.

    One has a choice to not play THE game. You can always play another game, but it may be a worse game?
    And rulz of the original game often overlap into the new game.

    Good to see so much love for the RSQ, such a killer rig.
    Y'know if someone wants my silver one for $51 shipped, shoot me a PM.
    With my new BilletBox phase, It just sits at my desk. I'll buy some ridiculously overpriced Titanium button or somethin instead.
    :crazy:

    RSQ is in perfect shape. Only used the harder of the two bottles. With box of course.
    Doesn't suffer the wobbly door problem that some of em have which is cool.

    Anywayyyy jus throwing that out there for anyone who's hot for the Hotcig!

    I guess Evolve is really trying to be king of the heap! The new DNA chip is capable of 400 w with four batteries and has a new feature called replay! However, in the US it is limited to 200w or 250 w and replay firmware upgrade is not available in the states....Thanks FDA!

    I'd be happy to sell you what morals i have and whatever is left of my dark soul as well.
    Just 1 caveat though.
    Once you've bought them your stuck with them no reselling and I will not take them back.
    Deal?

    Working on reducing the ones we make, still need shelter, food, clothes. Sure we've InterWebs access, use streaming services on our Roku. That isn't much as far as entertainment cost ~$22 - $24 monthly for the streaming services, access is ~ $45 - $50, kind of offset by research and communication. I'd hazard to say, ~ $200 monthly for electric(includes heat/ac), net, videos. Water, garbage is included in rent which runs just a bit over $300 monthly.

    She has upkeep and ins on her Jeep. We for the most do not live beyond our means. She has extra on a credit card. I know why that is though, we moved, bought a good brand name clothes dryer for her. It was a big purchase but worth it as this appliance company boasts the reputation of rarely needing servicing.

    We're living so yes, we'll get Bills.

    Ok guys and gals, 1st world problem here. I am considering buying one of the following.from the classifieds, 1st up is the Molly with upgraded silver contacts and a clear and green door with matching buttons. The 2nd item is a Bolt 2.5 in beautiful purple with a stabwood door and matching button.

    Any comments or things I should know about either mod?

    I am leaning towards the purple Bolt, that purple with a stabwood door it makes me think of the Grateful Dead (best concert I ever saw and probably ever will see!!!)

    Personally, I’d probably go with the Bolt. Stateside support if something should go wrong (probably won’t), parts are a bit easier to source, and the Molly sometimes has quality/ fitment issues.

    Bolt V2.5's are some of the nicest printed squonks around. That said, I've sold all my alumide mods except for my TLF which is a bit sentimental. And it's seen better days. The printed stuff just won't hold up over time and is already dropping considerably in price. The past two Runt lists haven't filled up, Toaster packed up shop etc.. sadly it's the beginning of the end for 3d printed mods in the 'high end' world. It was bound to happen.
    But if you love the look, and money isn't the issue go for it mate, I saw that Bolt and I totally get it (I saw the Dead with Jerry at Frost Ampitheater twice in the mid-80's..)
    Just keep in mind over time the box is gonna warp ...much like my brain at those shows!

    Edit; I'm also a terrible person to ask what's a wise decision... I just spent $80 on a Titanium drip tip / button set for my BilletBox.
    Someone kill me now please.

    Haaa.. not me mate. If you here "Oi!" it might be though.. I was there in 86 & 87, a young punk skate rat. It was a very California troubled-youth thing to go see the Dead!
    Saw them again around '88 at Shoreline, saw Pink Floyd that same year I think.. Momentary Lapse of Reason tour

    I saw them in the 90's twice at the cap center in MD and twice at rkf in DC. Never got to see the OG lineup of floyd but have seen Roger Waters a few times. Great memories... well from what I can remember :)

    I'd pass on them myself.

    There is the Mölly V2 out for less, there is the Bolt V3 for less.

    Mods just like cars lose value regardless of "upgrades" unless they a rarity, which the Mölly V1.1 and V1.2 aren't nor a Bolt 2.5

    Yes, they did! I have two of them in daily use along with a couple of 75C. The 75C is supposed to get a firmware upgrade sometime after CNY, if you're using the international version of Escribe.

    I don't think they did, not yet???? I saw an interview with Brandon (?) and DJPsb and they're talking about the new chip. They (Evolve) already shipped a bunch of chips to the manufacturers, but all new mods and such will be released after CNY. They are timing the release of the new firmware with the release of the new mods. They will be releasing some limited edition Evolve mods too!

    Unless your also considering the extra money you'll spend to get those upgrades. I mean yeah you can get a v2 Mölly for 10$ less but it'll have 1 set of doors, 1 button and copper contacts. Silver contacts alone will run you what 50$-60$? Then 40$ a set of door and button. So your saving a good chunk of change and getting a better performing mod imo. So if you want those extras or plan to add them I think it's a good deal.
    I sold my v1 molly with a stabwood door recently and got $250 out of it. I kinda regret letting it go to be honest.
    I agree the purple bolts are awesome looking but as already stated it's a bad time for resale value on those.

    I prefer getting fine silver from Rio Grande Jewelry. They are a reputable place, besides you can choose the size and thickness you want. https://www.riogrande.com/category/metals/silver/999-fine-silver
