Not so great... anyone else get one and the air holes line up?

Update: Arrived, exact same mis-alignment as the others, though it does sit flush to the mod and the airflow control is smooth, if useless. It technically works, but it's pretty restricted and turbulent/noisy, more than I like on both counts. Due to the internal machining, you'd need a CNC mill to modify it to fit like it's supposed to, or hack up the airhole location on the cap, but that would still leave the top holes above the posts, or 50% more airflow where it's not supposed to be. Ah well, we rolled the dice and lost. Ticket submitted, if I could get another cap I'd be thrilled.

Edit: Ticket resolved instantly, they're shipping over a new cap from a fixed batch. I'm happy, looking forward to it showing up randomly lol.

I ordered on 7th June and was shipped on 14th, I am not sure if the cap air holes problem has been fixed, upper holes seems misaligned.

I wasn't expecting it to be nearly as good as the authentic, but did at least believe they wouldn't bother to waste materials or list/sell/ship something on here that is this far out of spec. I mean, it's pretty solid and if it had at least lined up I think it would have worked fine... for all I know it was just luck of the draw and I got one of a small number that are buggered up.

You might be on to something there vape8ion, maybe someone got their hands on some rejects or selected parts of rejects being sent for scrap. Now I wonder... which part is actually off, the cap or the deck. Going to order an authentic from a little closer to home, only about $4 more than FT and none of the random import custom-y-ness delays.


Where did you find an authentic for $4 more??? I highly doubt it.

Coil does not allow to see the upper holes light through, but you can see lower holes are aligned.


That's great. How does it work for you? Can the air control be closed enough for MTL vaping?

Nope, even at minimum too much airflow for MTL.
Flavor is good, imho.
I donĀ“t like the o-rings of the cap, they sucks and make regulating the air flow a pain in the ass.

Believe what you like, when I said that authentic recurve was about 26USD shipped epacket on FT which takes anywhere from 5 days to 6 weeks to get to me. After conversion from local currency to USD for this comparison I paid 31.50USD (39.99+tax CAD) shipped in country and had it in hand 3 days later. BTW it's definitely the holes in the cap that were off, the deck's holes line up fine with the authentic cap.

The new cap arrived today, alignment is dead on (or within ~0.2mm), afc is smooth. I may still swap for the Wasps's o-rings, but it's not too loose (won't come off without a tug) it just spins a little easily. Very happy with how they handled this, obvious shipping time/waiting aside.
