On the weekend I can maybe take some pics of mine (specially the switch section) that has the engraving and logo, etc....I have the Tsumani on mine - the way it was when it lived at casa PaulS. Tongue
Of course mine is bloody authentic. There are a number of SMPLs people are calling authentic that are not.

Paul, that is why I offered to take some pics - so Michael will have an authentic to compare....Tongue man you are angry ...maybe you need a vacation! Smile

RE: What did you get today?
I'm happy! Today I got a package that contained a Hotcig R150, a Wisemec RX 2/3, a quad coil deck for an OBS Crius plus, a 6 piece set of ceramic tweezers, 6 drip tips and a 15' roll of 316L ss super juggernaut wire.

I do need a vacation. The authentic SMPL is a REM mod. Yours is the A-mod clone - not terrible but not the same.

You sure? Mine looks identical with that bottom tab....was identical to one I saw at a B+M in Vaughan shortly after I got it.....

As for a vacation, I've been invited to go to the middle east for 6 weeks early next summer.... PM me if interested Tongue

Fatboy I'm pretty sure he was talking to me, seeing as how yours says "REM" on the bottom and mine says "A-MOD."

I do occasionally buy a clone from certain manufacturers - SXK as an example. I just purchased a Hurricane Jr. clone. I don't want to shell out for the authentic until I've used it for a month or so. I hear it is 1:1 so if I like it I'll buy the authentic. I've had bad experiences with clones. I shipped Gently one of mine that I hated. I happily admit to being a vape snob. I like very nice gear. I buy mods like IPV8s or Sigs or ... whatever and end up trading or selling them cheap as chips. FB has been the lucky recipient lately although a number of TVF regulars have received some of my gear for free.

Everyone has their own way of vaping. I do not judge others buying habits. Don't judge mine, lol. And don't presume you know me that well. lol.

SXK - who make the Corolla make really good quality clones - and not cheap as clones go. I have a couple of them including the NarDA and I fail to see how the authentic one could be any better.

SXK does not disappoint. I'm a fan too. I have the NarDa as well both authentic and clone. I use the clone on top of my Therion squonk ( I drilled the pin out ). Works amazing.

RE: What did you get today?
Got the Buddha V3 yesterday. Haven't built on it yet, but it looks pretty dang cool. 30mm RDA. Super airy; the most I've seen in any atty I've owned anyway. Velocity deck with standard screws instead of grubs in the posts, which I will like. I picked the gold one. I got the white one for Ms. TW to match her Laisimo, but it is still on the slow boat.
