@HoracePinker

Are you sure that all bolts for coil are made of stainless steel?

And please tell me your opinion. Which version has better quality, 20$ or 26$?

Thank you.

Thanks for the update, looks good. Glad I cancelled my first one and got this one. Now if US customs would just hurry the hell up and process mine through. Lately using epacket the wait is longer for customs to process my packages than it takes to get out of China!

HoracePinker - Looks like the Black Box Aqua is missing the top cap o-ring.
I know of others that received from Fast Tech that are also missing this o-ring.
Someone else also mentioned that he purchased an Hcigar model and it is also missing that top cap (black) o-ring.

It would appear that the cheaper FT Aqua is the better one. I'm glad I didn't jump on the Tobeco one. So much for "you get what you pay for".

pretty sure all the screws are stainless.. i have no way to truly examine the metal composition, but the surface test they appear to be stainless..

as for which is better.. imho, i think this one is the better value.. extra drip tip (normal tips will not fit, too large diameter.. just like the real one), and hybrid adapter, with a slightly better build quality. They are both pretty damn nice.. but nit picking flaws.. this is better quality.

@The4thpower3
It is missing the o-ring. i have quite a few extras so i did not care or even bring it up..

btw.. this was my fastest FT order yet CP E-packet.. from acceptance to my door in the US, 5 days.

Thanks to the OP for info. I have a Tobeco Aqua and Tobeco SS Origin and am happy with the combo after a bit of tinkering of the Origin and refinishing the surface of the mod. I ordered 2 of these Aquas that I am still waiting to get packaged and a brass Origin mod from FT. If these Aquas are as nice as the Tobeco one I got they will make great gifts.

@HoracePinker

Thanks for your detailed answer.
I ordered this item few days ago.
Now I'm a bit relieved.
