They gave me about 20 af plugs, but no condensation plug :facepalm:
You got the full kit I take it?

And I gotta say. Now that I have the Shell setup right for mtl, it's awesome too. It's waiting to be rewicked in it's boro right now, but it'll be going back in at some point too. I'm going to put the tightest insert in the Xeta too. I can't believe how much I'm loving really tight mtl setups. I would have never thought.

Yeah, full kit. Need all the goodies :) Good to hear on the MTL. I'm sure I've said it before, but I'm weird I think. I love tight MTL, and massive air DL. Can't stand anything in the middle. Dunno why, except it fits my extreme personality I guess. Not that there is anything wrong with the Snail, but man I'll tell ya, I sure hope the Bridg'd stays exactly like this for me. Flawless, for what I am looking for :bingo:

That's the most goodies I ever got in a BB kit for sure.

I actually love the full range. You wouldn't like the Haar then. Seriously. It's right in that loos-ish mtl to tight-ish dtl range. Down the middle. Vape quality is off the planet though.

The Bridg'd will get easier as you work with it. I don't know if you remember, but I was about to pitch the thing when I first got it.

That's what kept me at it. After going nose to nose with the frickin thing getting it setup the first couple times, the vape was awesome. I couldn't give up on it.

Reminds me of the 6 RBA run I had with the BB first go that totally turned me off on them.

2 years later...advancements and a single chance at redemption...

Happy camper

That's price gouging bc of the current Billet craze. Problem is all these suckers will fall for it. Three months down the road I'll pick one up for 100 and that will be the price I was expecting.
No reason it should cost more than a Reaper.

I agree.

The Vapesnail was expensive too... but the snail looks better, has the fill port in the right position... and not sure if the Alien covers all vape styles...

I’ve spent more on dog shit, like goobers neofet lol

Plus I’m seriously done with the BB now that the flush nut came in.

No need to try and see if another companies boro rba is better...

And I wouldn’t even know if new stuff for the BB if it wasn’t for you all posting of it...

Find the perfect combo... no need to look further...

Unless it’s a mech... always down for new tubes

I like the Xeta a lot, but I think the Snail may be more my speed. Just not ready to plunk down the cash on it right now. I've seen some deals on them used... maybe I should just bite the bullet, sell the Xeta, and spend the extra to get one.
I'm really happy with the vape I get from the Tripod and the DotShell, so imagine it would be the same with the Snail.

To be honest, I'm kind of disgusted with the price of the Alien so I'm probably going to write it off and never get one bc of it. Shame bc I thought from the look of it they'd undercut the Snail to grab market share since it looks cheaper to me.

I’d get the clone snail, then get the oring kit... you will then have the rubber condensation deal

So what $30 from China for the full kit? and $25 from Atmizoo

$55. And you get the upgraded seals

That's exactly what I did - Snail from China, gasket kit from Greece.

Now if only I'd actually get my Snail - two months so far in transit
Where did you order from? I literally just ordered from 3F

So sorry about that delay...

It’s not Covid... I still get items in 21 days.

I’ve preached it all over VU... but always dispute with China at day 28... 30 days and they get paid, and they are much more open to dialogue when they don’t get their money.

And many bring up the point of how it can be an issue with China... and I have one word... Logistics; in which their logistics sucks.

I've got one coming from FT - one from 3F.

The one from 3F has been "delivered to airline transport" since 6/27.

Still waiting on my second clear BB too.

But my Atmizoo shipment got here in 6 days!

I must be doing something wrong. Atmizoo wants 17€ for shipping...

Edit: that's DHL. Whoops

Yea - I get it.
Thing is, my package is probably in one of two places - at the bottom of a container in China waiting to ship out, or at the bottom of a container in USA customs - either way, pretty much lost until it pops up somewhere.

Yeah that’s why I mentioned $25... it was what $13 for the kit and $9 for “Snail” mail option

Oh yeah they can take their dear, sweet time with it. It's going to piss me off to have the seal kit and no Snail, just like @NHXJer. Speaking of, hope yours arrives soon!

If I like it, I can unload my Xeta and hopefully bank 35 bucks. Bang.

The reason I do it is just to have a way to recoup if it goes lost for 4-5+ months... even if it gets delayed via PayPal...you started the dispute and those funds are on hold, shows a trail of concern.

PayPal will give some time due to the pandemic... but PayPal won’t help the buyer once funds have been released, especially after months have gone by.

Knock on wood - I've never had a shipment from China never arrive.

I have heard that the delays are mainly due to flights out of China bring severely cut back and US Customs being severely backlogged.

But then again - it took no time at all for my Atmizoo package to clear - maybe Customs is processing shipments from China as the lowest priority.

I read that they're actually putting packages into quarantine for at least 14 days but that was weeks ago. Not sure if they're still doing that though... either way that time frame has come and gone.

My 3F order I placed in May made it to me in 23 days.

Another made July 9th made it a few days ago. 21 days

China to US was 4 days... took about a week for customs and nearly 9 to go from Compton to me... didn’t update til it was scanned locally to be delivered for that day.

Has anyone modified the positive pin on their BB?
I get random "NO ATOMISER" messages - I usually have shake, tap, or even take out and re-install my Boro to get it to work again - annoying.

Thought about maybe prying the pin up enough to get an o-ring under it (if I can find one thin and small enough).

Any other ideas?

That problem is more likely related to where the 510 key up top contacts the chimney of the rba.

I dunno - maybe.
It seems that sometimes the Kanger RBA positive pin is just barely making connection.
I'll try to look better next time it happens.

I think I'll hold off messing with the pin until I get my Snails and see if the problem goes away.

I did seal the pin with some food-grade silicone - following a tutorial I saw on the Planetofthevapes forum - I couldn't believe how much juice had already seeped down in just a couple weeks use.

I also now cut a piece of Muji into a U shape and place it under my Bro just like a condensation plug - it works great - my BB stays really dry now.

I'm gonna try that muji trick with the snail since I got no condensation thingy for it with the super ultra basic package I got. Lol

Yes - I've got my Atmizoo plugs sitting right here - still no damn Snails though.

I opened tickets with 3F and they wrote me with tracking links to 17track and I was like "yes - I can read 17track just as well as you - how about some real updates?"

I know it’s repetitive, but that is why you dispute charges, they are much more willing to help.

Open ticket with...”PayPal disputed”

Then the body, and stay firm. They will always say, “we can’t help if there is a dispute” which is a lie.
