    holy fuck @KingPin! nice score. congrats m8!

    highly recommend a hog...para-series is a whole different thing that lets you do some pretty cool builds. the 3.1 versions (i think its just the horseman and some of the pinky/purple/space finish ones) have a newer softer switch in them. im not sure if its any better aside from being softer. i have had a v3 for months and the switch is still perfect...

    skip the clones though. they are dangerously cheaply made. between cheap materials and machining, the switch is a problem waiting to happen.

    Well I have an 8 (7.5) wrap alien coil in it, 28g/38g Nichrome80, 3.5mm ID (see the pic I posted). It vapes absolutely wonderfully on a series mech... I put it on my Vapergate 'The 99' (dual 26650 series tube mech) equipped with 2 × iJoy 26650 batteries and I just LOVE the flavor so yeah, my advice = don't miss out on the 24mm Deathtrap.

    EDIT: 3.5mm ID

    They've all been V3.1 if produced since at least July of this year. I don't know anything about the V3 or differences since it is a general "upgrade" I do know that the battery door is designed for the contacts to snap in the case of a short... I have and extra set... However, I very much hope I never experience that.

    @Carambrda I live about 20 minutes from Vapergate... The Primero is sweet! Very different. I've only used the 30mm... They make nice stuff, it's a nice shop too.

    I saw pictures of what their HQ in Denver looks like. Someone posted them in this other thread more than a year ago: http://vapingunderground.com/threads/mechanical-pics.2413/page-21#post-1385536
    From Vapergate I have 2 × Mason Advocate / 24mm Mason V2 / 30mm Mason V2 / 24mm postless deck / 30mm postless deck / 24mm Mason Gemini Series II / 30mm Mason Gemini Series II / The 99. The postless decks don't fit on the Mason V2s so that's why I also got the Geminis... Denver is only 4888.8 miles from where I live (Smurf country = Belgium). lol

    Lol, that's just a short swim and a jog!

    I think the Primero is available in the UK... It's really cool man! It has three different sized center posts for air that you can choose... I use the biggest, so it draws from the bottom into the center post, then out from the middle to the coils... It's a velocity style deck so the center air post is not anything aside from airflow. The barrel screws on so if you wick it right if fits literally long squirts of juice without leaking. It's pretty sweet man. Different for sure, but a worthy one to pick up, especially if you're a Vapergate fan. It's a flavor beast, and the 30mm keeps it cool. I actually prefer a hotter vape, but it's a good atty and very unique.

    I watched David's own video 'review' of that one on YouTube soon after he posted it, but I just didn't know what to make of it. In that same video I remember him saying it's not the best for flavor so he must be the worst shill ever. lol

    LMAO! That's not a type of device I don't like anymore. I used to not be a fan of the series box.
    Now I'm practically a full a mech convert.

    BAM crew

    @KingPin! I will be sure to post a pic once she arrives! It's rather special... I am a very very very grateful man.

    @Carambrda I only saw a few reviews when I checked on Youtube. One was solid, one totally seemed to miss the point if I remember correctly, and one guy was not so great... I could only find a few but gambled and was not disappointed. I definitely could see it be a love or hate, but I don't feel either... I just like it.

    @f1r3b1rd I haven't done TC aside from testing devices in a good while... once I hit a series box it was over, lol. Mechs to TC to series boxes and stacks. I'm starting to love tubes again also! And smart PWM is glorious!

    I can wick my modest builds at least, in a way so as to not get a dry hit unless I want to. That's my TC... :) Blast the power away!

    I must say the new top YIHI Chips do pack a punch though, surprised the shit out of me. They destroy DNA's for Power mode IMO... Back to series!

    I want my Pig NOW! Damn you USPS sitting on very important stuff since freaking Friday! LOL. Never ends with them...

    :cheers: Probably I'll still pass on it, though... IMO you should try the 30mm Mason V2:

    I just got the wife lady a cartel revanant on a trade and am doing some tc testing on it for fun.

    I'm impressed with the board, really dig having the select button and the response time is great.

    -oh wait there's my mech box :)

    The Omni 2 Board, I believe is in it... is very nice. I have the Tarot 160 with the original, and the Revengers have the Omni 2. I've played with them and they're real nice. The Revenant is really nice looking... I haven't grabbed em yet though... Sounds solid... The Omni really is good. I may just kinda not be a fan of Cartel... but I will leave it at that... I had a bad experience twice a couple of years ago as a customer, so I kinda have decided not to play with them... really bad experience. Done with that... lol.

    I will post pics of the Pig... IT's UNBELIEVABLE! I had to call him yesterday and thank him personally... It is soooooo nice. I love my Green Pig, and this SOSK OD Green is just special. I have a TON of mods... way too many, and nice ones. Shitty ones too, lol. But this one... #22 of 50, the engravings are so deep and all over and very intricate, the button is even intricately engraved black copper... This is definitely the rarest and probably thus nicest mod I have...

    Pics coming, I'm soooo fucking busy right now, lol. But I will say this... Rig Mod is a stand up company, and they go above and beyond when it is necessary. That is all I ask for. I have patience... too much, but as long as things are made right I let them go. They did more than right by me to say the least... So props due where they are deserved! They had one SOSK of 50 left in the shop... I was asked if I wanted it since I love Rig Pigs, and we had some issues to iron out... My jaw dropped, lol. Opened it, and it dropped to the floor! What a gift!

    I got 2 Copper BAMF's and another 2-Post Roughneck V2 on the way to add to my other two and three posts, and another adapter in case my other goes. Building on these and using a multimeter to test is near impossible. It's basically build a known build, multi meter to make sure you're not shorted, and fire if you don't have an adapter for the 510... I know common go to builds, but that's still sketchy on a mech series box. I am very confident in my builds, but the adapter is definitely backup worthy. At least the Rig Pig is literally impossible to dead short... If you manage to do that with a good battery and the Roughneck... you have talent enough to get a pre-emptive Darwin Award... because you likely are receiving one at some point in life... :)

    I can't wait for the BAMF's!

    LOL. They're tiny... I shrunk em too much to keep the files small. I'll get to it here today. I think I should have a moment in a bit... It's NICE! I'm using and enjoying it... carefully, but it's staying with me, so no need to do anything but enjoy!

    I would definitely go heavy with something like that. Maybe some type of large diameter staple variant. The Deathtrap can easily handle it. Otherwise, the usual builds may be too hot of a vape to be comfortable.

    EDIT: A 6x0.4 ribbon core staple with 28g frames (all KA1), 3.5mm inside diameter, 6/7 wraps should give you a nice warm vape. In theory, it will be about 0.35Ω and pull about 24 amps.

    With series mods, ramp up isn't as much of an issue as it is with other types of mods. I would try it myself, but I sold my Deathtrap. I think you'll like it.

    @Carambrda Where have you found it best to position the coils on the deathtraps?

    The spacing between my alien coil and the binding posts is about 2mm, and it is at exactly the same height as the big air hole, which is 2/3 of the way open, whereas both small ones are wide open. The ends of the wick touch each other in the juice well so the juice well is filled with a layer of cotton that has the same thickness as the depth of the juice well and I flattened this layer by carefully budding underneath the coil with the sharp tip of my cotton hook tool after juicing up... here is a video that shows you why:
