Problem is with the chi-you. The threads are crap, too wide diameter near the top.
I use my chi you with the ithaka, the trident or kayfun, they just fit and secure by a few last threads.

Problem with the chi you is the first 4-5 threads are useless, any atty with a short 510 thread will not fit as it can't screw down far enough to reach the decent threads lower.

No problem with the igo or other short thread attys on my King mods, SVD, sigeleis or private v2.
Problem is with the chi-you only (looks like some nemesis mods might be dodgey too after comments in this thread)

Not worth me posting back as I'd have to post back to FT direct, and I wouldn't even attempt doing that without posting registered so they can;t pretend they never got it. It would cost too much (even though they may provide cover for the postage costs eventually, it may be after CNY it gets sorted, so will be months out of my own pocket probably).

Quality is a crap shoot here. Maybe they might offer a new top for chi-yous eventually, maybe I'll just use whatever atty does fit, maybe I'll try an AIOS next year.

For my mind, recent batches of the chi-you is a huge disappointment, avoid.

Just submitted my review, lets see if it gets put on the site.

bad 510 threads
bad tube threads
bad switch
bad air holes

510 threads too big a diameter, doesn't fit short threaded attys like an igo RDA. Barely grabs longer threaded attys like ithaka, kayfun that can reach further down into the 510 threads that work.
Tube threads really sloppy, ridiculous amounts of movement in them until tightened right up
The three air holes drilled are not even straight
Switch shaft not smooth, only fires if you press the button right in the middle.

E: SKU 1508701 is the chi-you I'm talking about.

I'm not sure if people realize this but every atty clone or not has issues like this. The "real" trident doesn't fit on half of the mechs out there and the clone doesn't fit the same ones the real one doesn't. Theres info out there people. I think RipTrippers made a rant about that somewhere. It's not cause of this particular item is crap or that. There's just not a standard threading for 510 connections.

@ AsianFrank .....yeah, I believe that is true although I gotta give a +1 to the laser etched Chi. Works with every single atty I own, even the I-atty (now deceased!) which won't thread on my Nemmy!! :)
