RE: What have you got on order ?
Ain't it so.

I own at least 40 more mech mods than I need given that I don't actually need (or want) any. And at least 20 more regulated mods than I'll ever use.

Will that stop me from buying the next shiny? Will it ....

Shinyitis is not actually curable...

RE: What have you got on order ?
I'm actually quite proud of myself. I've cut down to 12 mechs, 3 squonks, 4 tiny mods and about 12 pods in the house (many of these free for review). I only really pay now for mech tubes and kick ass atomizers (picked up the Duvo Predator today). Now my wife uses all the pods and tinys as well. She just confiscated my EQ (well it was purple).

I actually don't want anything now but I will take a Slam Piece if one becomes available cheap or in trade. So I think I've done well cutting down from 50 or so mods in the house. Ask FB 0- he knows how many I always had lying about!

RE: What have you got on order ?
Shinyitis is a real thing and most of us suffer from it - but at least in my case, you get to a point where you have picked up just about everything you've had your eye on, and realize that the "new" thing on the market in many cases isn't any better (in many cases worse) than what you already have....having a little patience has proven to be my ally. I've watched new gear come out and be impossible to get, weeks later, when the market demand has leveled off, they end up on the platform of the price being negotiable....or the shop being overstocked and needing the cash (in inventory) to purchase the next best thing....

My daily use devices are all several years old - Sigelei 213 (TFV8), HΩ Wrecker G2 (DROP RDA), (both from PaulS) the RSQ (Peerless) and the Aegis (GOON). Still use the TARGET PRO (GOON) almost daily. (but we won't talk about shinyitis that contributed to the other 20+ regulated mods, 10+ tube mods and 4-5 squonkers collecting dust!)

RE: What have you got on order ?
I have Shinyitis under control, I see something, I like it a lot, but I don't buy it. My head rules the heart the last thing I bought was the RSQ and I was tempted to buy a wooden squonker from FyneMods but thought better of it. That means I must be seriously ill Lol2

Hi Rob - you have more will power than me - I cannot wait for my squonker to arrive - at least 3 weeks yet.

RE: What have you got on order ?
No doubt my shinyitus has slowed considerably. If I have a mod failure or run out of Iron Maiden parts, watch out though. As of now, I'm not even tempted anymore. But that's a good thing....

RE: What have you got on order ?
This is the last day of my months vape budget  - for the first month ever since joining the forum I have spent nothing - a really good start to my saving for the squonker - quite chuffed I am - I think I deserve a new Mod as a reward[Image: tongue.gif].

My VT inbox has bitten the dust so Shinyitis could become an issue again Smile

Hi Rob - Not so good and sorry to hear about it - what has happened to it - they have been solid performers up to now.
