FT didn't list that kit, only that lame RDA. (goon V4) I sent a request today, but there's very little chance that they would source only the mod... the fff site and ffdeal have them.

It works well, switch is great, but it's a delicate mod as well. For battery rattle you could read in the other thread. (solved) Spring is not fixed so one has to be careful that it's placed centred. I didn't short it, but for an hour or so, the whole mod/RDA kept being strangely warm and suddenly the battery went off. (got drained out) Till I realised what was the matter. All is good now.

For the paint: time will tell :)

So maybe the resin tube could be a mm longer?You could maybe put 2 thick o-rings at the two ends of the tube.



Actually, the resin tube is at least 1mm too tall as it is.

If it were possible to take apart the delrin and brass part and sand down a bit, you could win a mm too.


That's what I'm thinking about doing.

After measuring a bit, I'd say you'd need to take off 1-1.5mm from the tube and the same from the delrin/brass part it would just be a charm.

I tried using the top brass battery cap from the Tomahawk X and forget the brass contact, but it didn't work as, then, the 510 pin was too short to make contact. But I think it's a step in the right direction.

As for the goon, I'm curious to buy it just to see if the parts could mix...
Anyways, I'm on holidays this week so I think I'll just get the dremel out and try some modding!

I wouldn't mind a brass and resin one but.... "resin + brass/copper (random) / random colors". This random tube material and random resin sleeve colour is getting ridiculous. What's next, random parts?

What about just a random item listing? Just 1$ and you get whatever they send you, like a keychain, a screw or a dildo?

That makes me think of the old story of the freebies from fecale...
Pink lanyard for ego battery, clero or snake head DT? ...

Yeah, just like another best place did a buy one get one free deal recently... Trick was their deals looked like Buy a 55$ mod and get a pack of 20 batt. wraps for free. Huh.

Received it. (Post seems to be very fast these days) =)
Of course, wasn't lucky with the resin, I would've been happier with anything but purple and yellow, lol
Anyway I was prepared to that.
It definitely won't become a very popular piece, needs some fiddling and precautions to put it together.

So, that was about my idea: just found and old 18500 SS tube, about a mil shorter for it. It works, it doesn't short =D but the little brass pin warms up quite a bit, so needs to figure out how to insulate it correctly.





If someone is in love with purple and ready to swap his/hers to mine, are very welcome ! =)

Looks nice with ss. I did manage to shorten the tube and delrin piece by about 1mm each and it reduced the gap and isn't autofiring. I will try to remove another 1mm. (Maybe less though, the gap is about 0.6mm now).
Where is your ss tube from?
