Curse you, Spasmod!!
For getting me into this damned hobby!! Angry

Thanks to you I just HAD to have yet another mech.  This time it's the Atmomixani 69 in stainless steel.

I wouldn't mind so much if I hadn't just bought a Poldiac clone and it hadn't shipped out already.  At any rate, if it is anywhere as good as the Nemesis (and I understand that it is) this should be amazing! Big Grin

So, Spas, my brother from another mother, a sincere thanks. Wink

RE: Curse you, Spasmod!!
Nice. The switch should be reversible from top end to bottom end for thumb/pinky firing.

I'm out of mod buying for a bit, too much shiny shiny going on and I want to build a few conversation pieces, particularly since I have a freaking huge lump of timber to play with and brass isn't anywhere near as prohibitively expensive as I thought. 

Just been reading loads of build threads on planet of the vapes, lots of ideas for simple cool mods now.

Graham, that's awesome - me too I have a design in my head for a wooden and brass mod which uses 3x 18650

Suppose we should keep our design ideas to the other thread Confused

Got to agree with you on that Wayne,  it looks like a crap copy of the roller switch, but the roller has everything self contained.

For I minute, after reading you and Wayne's posts, I thought I was on CPF.  Had to verify I was indeed on TVF.  Sounds like someone has a case of "I own a genuine mod"itis. Tongue

FYI, Don't flatter the Roller by assuming this clone is in any way an attempt to clone it.  The Atmomixani 69 is only similar to the Atmizoo Roller in that they are side switches.  The KTS and others came out with side switch models long before either of those.  The 69 is an original design that came out about a month after the Roller and made no attempt to copy the Roller's switch.  Instead they simplified and refined the typical side switch with, IMO, an ingeniously simple switch lock.  To this clone's credit, it is a nearly exact 1:1 copy of the Atmomixani 69 right down to the switch and spring itself which has proven to be a very reliable design as long as the contacts are kept clean.  This clone is a dead ringer for the real $200 69 Erik's Edition.  Finish, design, all engraving including the logos, switch, etc...exactly like the Erik's Edition released about a year ago.  It is called the "69" because the switch can be configured to be on top or bottom depending on the preference.

Actually I love the idea of side-firing mods but has this usual KTS style switch that to me is an ugly wart and sticks out way too far.  I'm crazy about the Poldiac design with it's flush switch button, and the Roller and 69 switches as they stick out very little by comparison to the GG you posted.  I'm sure it's a nicely made mod but I'm not a fan of the look or pinky switches.

Oh I wasn't trying to be smug, I'm just really not impressed with the switch implementation, direct clone or not.

Besides, your only jealous cos I've got a real one....Big GrinTongue
