But I am sure many of you know me from BLF. 

Johnny and Graham have both nudged me to join, but at the time I was not really interested in new vape gear.


The bug bit once again to try out new stuff. Bought an Ikarus clone that Graham showed on BLF HERE. It was the best price I could find period and it shipped out from New York.

Been looking at a few others too
Poldiac Style Mechanical Mod Kit
Foggatti T22 Style Hybrid Mod Kit
Kayfun Lite Styled Rebuildable Atomizer 


In March, it will be 3 years with 0 smoking (tobacco), and also 3 years of using my prodigy v3.1. Time to retire it and try some new tech. 
You guys newer to vaping dont know how much the tech has changed in the almost 4 years I have been vaping

Hey pulsar, great to finally see you here, sorry I didn't get back to you quicker,  I've been a tad busy and suffering a cludged internet connection. 

Hows the ikarus? I recoiled and burnt off my wicks tonight, three weeks of abuse had left them looking pretty mucky, its back on form now Big Grin

RE: New user here
So far I am liking it. Dont like the new hole in my hand or the fact I scratched up the top cap already.
After I drilled out the air intake, its been hitting better and better. Too bad this couldnt be my all day vape at work.

Need to pick up some assorted wire to try out. I am sure whats included with the China clones are not optimal. Also, may be ordering up something else tonight... can not decide if I want the Foggatti or the SS Poldiac.... Probably will be the Pldiac so I can have something that I can use the Kayfun lite on when I get around to ordering one

They have some other really good deals on there too, and they sent me an email with some killer deals... but not much else that really catches my eye that I need to have.

Order some ribbon, .5 or .4, the ikarus loves ribbon, id order kanthal in .2, .25 and .32 mm that should cover anything you buy, personally I love ribbon and use it wherever I can now.

Me too. Ribbon beats wire every time.

Evern if it is just because I can actually see the ribbon.

RE: New user here
got $60 to play with tomorrow. that will get me about 2-3 months worth of juice at fasttech( 100ml of dekang tobacco 24mg, and 3 bottles of 30ml hangsen ry4 24mg), and either the foggatti hybrid or the poldiac... can not decide. the foggatti will come ready to go with a rebuildable, the poldiac i will need to wait another week or so to order the kayfun lite... 

how is the kayfun lite as an edc? i have been putting the ikarus through its paces today... went out and shoveled snow and ice buildup off the back porch with it in my pocket, watched tv with it laying horizontal on the couch ( air hole/wick facing up)... i have not noticed any leakage yet. still, with the glass and only 2 imr 18350s, i would not risk carrying it at work.

i am hoping the kayfun lite with a 20x1 hybrid adapter on something could become my new all day vape machine. i wouldnt trust the 510 threads to hold up to my abuse at work. i am already on my second top cap on my prodigy, and they are getting a little wobbly. i break threads of cartos about once a month and sometimes i will strip the threads off a carto within a day at work.

a short 18350 hybrid that will not leak and does not have glass would be perfect for me at work, even if it is just a dripper

Kayfun is just awesome full stop. I'm about to rebuild mine so I'll take a couple of pictures,  it just works, mines all stainless too. I edc it on my roller. Sits flush, is rock solid and can use 18350 to 18650 as its telescopic

Here you go pulsar
