RE: What did you get today?
I did my usual first test of taking it out of the bag and sucking on it. Taste, machine oil so it's due for a long hot bath or two before I build it. Then a swill out with isopropyl alcohol. Then another bath and another good sook on it to make sure it doesn't taste of oil any more. Then i have some nice unsteeped rhubarb and custard to toss into it. I was going to steep it but liked it already. Oddly enough bystanders only smell a vanillaish smell, all I taste is lightly sweetened rhubarb. 

I got mine on one of their group buys for $14.70.

Got the Squape cleaned out and built. Thus far no messing with it required. It is a pain trying to install an 0.6mm (22G) coil in it. But it's done and that coil should last for ages. The flavour's certainly there. It is going to need its air holes seeing to though. I've stuck it on the GG TS clone as it allows airflow through the 510 connector.

RE: What did you get today?
I have my Squape soaking right now but it looks nicer than the one I got from FastTech.  The 510 threads are perfect.  Looking forward to setting it up and giving it a shakedown. Smile

So what are your impressions so far, Don?  It's a solid, well machined bugger IMO.  Basically just two pieces and you can pull the base and modify the wick on the fly without draining or leaking any juice.  Super simple to set up and nowhere as fussy as a KFL.  The taste blows away my KFLs and it doesn't leak or gurgle.  The best tanker atty I've tried.  Simply a joy!

RE: What did you get today?
I was beginning to wonder if I'd misunderstood and it was going to Graham first and then what was left was coming to me so I didn't worry about it Smile

Since you sent it directly first class it was quite fail by them. I wonder if they lost it and found it again in one of the vans or on the depot floor Confused

RE: What did you get today?
Squape impressions.

I built a 2mm(ish) coil from 0.6mm Kanthal, used the 1mm silica that came with it cut to the diameter of the deck as per the recommendations for the real Squape. This doesn't seem to be ideal as I'm getting a bit of leakage. The real Squape is supposed to get two thicknesses of 3mm silica cut off at the edges of the deck. If I can stuff 2 lengths of 3mm through the coil (Which is pretty rigid) I'll run one a little bit down the juice channels. As long as that wicks OK, it should deal with any leakage issues. I hope.

Flavour is good but the juice I'm using has a fair amount of rather strong rhubarb flavour in it so it might not be the atty. I'll put the last of Spas' tobacco extract in it once I've emptied the tank. That should be very nice.

I can't believe you still have some of that.. I'll have to send you up some actual extract so you can mix it to your taste. Good luck with the squape
