454 Big Block
I want a Big Block, but Im wanting to get input from anyone that has one first. Maybe additionally from someone that has recent experience with angelcigs, or Fastech. they seem to be like sister companies.Angelcigs is the US Warehouse. My 3 targeted attys are the 454, the Mutation X, and the Nucleus. They all seem to be really serious cloud generators, as well as flavor makers. Anyone have any experience with any of these?

I've got the 454. I really like it. It puts out nice big clouds and has a nice flavor. However, it is a pain to get set up.

Built one really quick just for fun. Vape is nice but can get hot using a quad. The drip tip is a nice design, no juice in the mouth at all.

I want a Mutation X too, you give the Magma a real vote of confidence too, are they both clones? My big 3 for ordering right now are the Mutation X, the Nucleus, and the Big Block 454. What do you like about the Magma? LOL, Its gotta be that deep drip well. Will twin 28 ga coils fit those holes in the Magma?

Does anyone have a Nucleus? Thats another big one on my wish list, I want to know if the hype is all its cracked up to be.

Johnny has one but if I recall he's not keen on it after some prolonged use

RE: 454 Big Block
I like the deep juice wells your wicks just dangle into them like 2 Mexican moustaches Big Grin
The airflow can be set at 1mm 2mm or 3mm single or dual coil 
I have it set mostly at 1 or2mm with lung hits at 3mm 
It creates good vapor and great taste 
The post holes aren't massive (1.5mm I think)but I can fit 0.5mm wire in them on dual coil  and that's more than enough for me 
I like the screw on cap as well 
It's also really easy to build 
Mine is an origonal but I would imagine the clones will be just as good if the different clones I have are anything to go by Good

RE: 454 Big Block
I have a Nucleus. It's OK. No more. Just about the easiest thing out there to build once you figure it out.

Vertical wicks just don't work for me in drippers.

It's not that it's bad, it's quite good and at the time I reviewed it I loved it. Like most of my hardware, it gets set aside as new stuff comes in and I tend to forget about them. ADHD is a terrible thing! Tongue

RE: 454 Big Block
Friday brought my 454, and my Plume Veil. I have to say, the 454 is a real BEAR to build.. Honestly, I got a friend to do it since my eyes aren't so good. She built it with micro coils, and I think to give it a better, should I say a more honest review I really need to try it with quad macros also. At this point.. I'm not nearly as pleased with the 454 as I thought I would be. Currently, the Plume Veil with twin macros has my favor by far. The Plume Veil was fired at 0.8 ohms using 30 watts of power, with 70% VG/30% VG, using no nicotine. Sadly, the build on the 454 was at .3, and my DNA 30 clone wouldn't fire it. I wound up putting a fresh battery in my M-16 and using that as a test bed using 70% VG/30% VG, and no nicotine. At this point.. I'm most impressed with the Plume Veil, as for the 454, I will reserve judgment until I've put another build in it.  Oh, and by th' way.. If you're thinking of getting a Plume Veil.. stop thinking and get it, you wont be sorry.
