Phenom - damnit, I haven't tried the Cruiser.. I had a authentic Haku Phenom a long time ago and missed it so I grabbed a clone for now. I didn't like the Venna but will have to find a Cruiser now as well.

The Phenom is much less restricted than the Venna from what I remember of using both. Just never fit me I guess. I'll have to grab a FT Cruiser to compare with the Phenom.

Sorry adding Fetchcheck to stay relevant

They never cloned the Cruiser afaik and the only difference is the cruiser has a bigger juice well, same deck and same cap. And yeah the Venna is more restricted but in a good way, at least for me I love it.

So, I figure the Twisted King procreates with the Suicide Queen, and the Skeleton King Kong procreates with the Wicked Witch, and we can have some real demon spawn....... :devil::bomb::bingo::crazy:

Just love the chameleon effect of the Twisted King (far 20210515_221034.jpgleft). Look at the diff turning the flash on 👍👍👍

Peerless, TM, Occula

Not that I know... but I did stay at a...
Indeed. The Occula if built right has great flavor. Glad I found it again. I'll put a .1 - .12 build on it and make sure they are high up near level with the top screws.
I like the TM but the AFC is crap. You get juice beneath it and it spins like a beeatch. And it can get a bit hot.
The Peerless is okay. Im do like the Ultem top. It never gets too hot. So you can run some pretty beefy coils in it.

It's funny. I bought the Asgards, the Nightmares, the Purge X etc.etc. But the old standbys - Goon, Kennedy, Occula etc., still give as good a vape as they do.

I really envy you guys and your Purdy bottom button mods at times. So far over the last 6 to 7 years the only ones I've found that I can use for hours without aggravating my arthritis is the Nanos, Nemesis and my Vella clone.

I only have two bottom buttons left. traded most for sidefires. I am over 70 years old and have difficulty too and coiling and wicking is harder and harder.

I'm 62 and I'm with you on that. When I was young I started out doing computer board repair with a microscope. Took a single strand off a paint brush and wrote my name on the head of a straight pin. Now I am lucky if I can write my name on a full sheet of paper.

Im with ya on the arthritis. I have days when i can't use a bottom or side fire mech at all due to pain. But that's when i go to my luna, pumper 21, s2 or a recurve. Easy on my hands.

This pic is the first one I've seen of the same style of Kennedy clone that I have. Mine's stainless.

I tried all kinds of RDAs on it, but the Rebel Recoil that I got from the hardware thread is the cat's pajamas on this mod.

I like the combo very much! Had thought seriously about ordering a black one, too, but I really have more tube mechs than I can reasonably use. Favorite black one that I have so far is a Broadside Nashed Admiral with a Profile RDA.

I finally was able to get one of them. Was a total idiot for awhile till I figured out you have to turn the little button to get it to fire. Geez

Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

Mine must have been "unlatched" when I got it - I don't recall having to do that. I think I'd remember, because I'd probably have had to resort to reading some instructions, which I almost never do. lol

If you take one of three magnets in a standard Purge switch out, it lightens the throw a ton. I don't have arthritis, so can't says for sure, but it's as easy as pushing the button on most regulated mods, I would say.

I know one thing - the WORST tube I've had for being hard to fire is the Wismec Machina. I just about have to use both hands to vape that thing. When you press on the "button" (it really isn't a button, but the bottom of the battery housing) you are essentially lifting the battery and its housing to make contact with the 510 pin. It is ROUGH.

I was helping this guy in another thread with his Procolor which led me to pull this unused one outta the box. Turns out it's a kit. with BBB tank. I thought it was only the mod :D

I stuck the big single .15 factory coil in there and ya know what? It's pretty good. Actually really good flavor lol. This coil is a lot like the original Valaryian coils.
