RE: First vape shop in my area.
You couldn't go wrong with a Sigelei-100W Plus. Those things look gorgeous. I haven't gotten one myself yet, but I do have the non-Plus version, and the only real differences are cosmetic, plus a self-adjusting 510 pin. It's a great mod, reliable and will do anything you need it to. I use Samsung 25R cells in mine, they've got a high amp rating so I know they can handle any build I feel like using.

RE: First vape shop in my area.
I have a Sigelei 100w+ and even with a .2ohm atty the highest I can go is 75-80w. Any higher and the juice starts tasting burnt. At this point and time I can't see myself needing anything more than a 100w mod.

At the shop I work at, we welcome customers to try out our mods...kinda why we have displays.  It gives the customer a chance to handle and test the mod for themselves before buying.

The more I hear about your shop, the more I want to visit. Sounds like an awesome place. The shops near me won't let people try them out, but they'll let you look them over to make sure they are good quality. Doesn't really help the people who don't know what a good quality mod looks like though.

The local vape shop (there's two close to me), both, let you try out everything.
Because of that I'm comfortable buying from them. I mean, you wouldn't buy a car without a test drive.

RE: First vape shop in my area.
Just a question to everyone that has a local vape shop... What are their prices like compared to Fasttech? I know they should be higher due to cost of keeping the stuff in stock, lease on the building, pay employees, turn a profit along with other costs of staying open, which I totally understand. But how much higher is normal? I was looking at a Freakshow RDA, and was close to buying it from them, until I asked the price.


The Freakshow is $50, and I can get the same one at Fasttech in the same tin for $10.13
The Cloupor T8 they have a price tag of over $160, and its $84.67 at Fasttech

Is this high of markups typical? Im going to stop in and buy little bits here and there, like my cotton and wire, maybe some drip tips, some juice... But I am not able to afford or justify buying any attys or mods from them if these prices stay.

I would be more than happy to make all my vape gear off them if it was like a 15-25% markup

RE: First vape shop in my area.
It really depends on the item. I'd say in my local shops most atties are between $20-35. I got my Patriot for 20, and paid 30 for my Dark Horse. Most mech mods are around $40-60. My Sigelei and God Mod were both $120, which isn't much higher than online prices. 
That said, I live in an area where vaping is very popular and there are a lot of shops everywhere you go around here, so they have to be competitive in pricing. I've been places in my travels where the same products are 20% more expensive than at my local shops.
