Looks like a stellar deal - but wait - DOES THE ARCTIC NOT HAVE A BUILD DECK??!!  Because that's a deal breaker for me...

Nope just replaceable coils. But I hear good things about it

The Arctic does not have a build deck, but from what I hear, it's so good you wouldn't really need one. It comes in .2 and .5 ohms, and I've heard it can handle as much as 90W without dry hits. That's incredible for any tank, especially one that's not rebuildable! 
You can actually rebuild most atomizer coils with a bit of effort, and I'm sure the Arctic is no different. I've heard of people rebuilding SubTank coils, ProTank, Nautilus, basically any coils can rebuilt if you know how to do it.

I rebuild SubTank coils, but the design of those looks like they aren't keen on people doing so.  I'm not willing to buy one just to find out.

I'm sure it hits like a sunuvabitch, but if I' have to keep buying their coils I won't buy it.

I got an Arctic today. Hits like a beast and has great cloud production. It came with an extra coil, and seeing Jaded's post got me curious, so I disassembled it. Its not the easiest coil that I've ever reassembled but it worked all the same. Much rather the hassle of rebuilding than dropping $4.50 per coil at my local shop.

^that right there.

The whole reason I got my SubTank was to start building coils because I was spending so much money on ProTank3 coils every month.  And as fast as I burn through things, no WAY I'm getting a deck with coils that cost 4x as much as the ProTank ones, LMAO!

I got my Arctic at FT. When I ordered it I got their replacement coils for just $5.74 for 5 coils. They work as well as the original that came with it and at just $1.15 per coil it's a bargain for the performance and ease of use.

They also sell the actual coils for rebuilding them making it even easier. 100 coils for just $7.39. That's enough for 50 rebuilds and very easy to do.

Okay - that has my attention, lol...

Wait - one is replacement coils for the Atlantis, not the Arctic..?  The other is just...  Coils, lol.  I could make 100 of those in a couple hours with the wire I already have.  I thought you ment something premade and coiled to fit in the Arctic casings.

Jaded, here's a link to the Arctic coils on FT: Arctic coils

They're $10 for a 5-pack, Johnny must have gotten the Arctic and Atlantis confused I guess. lol

The Arctic coils look like they'd be easy enough to rebuild, once I've used up my first coil (which should only take a few hours, considering how much I've been using this thing lol) I'll dismantle it and see if I can put it back together. I've never rebuilt a stock coil before though, so don't get your hopes up Tongue
