I’m unsure which is the best option for a clone, sxk or 5Avape. The noticeable difference is the chimney: the sxk version is separate from the chamber, 5A is attached.
I’ve had trouble with the separate chimney with the insider and the exocet. It sometimes gets a bit loose and the chimney just pops off when unscrewing the top bolt of the BB… producing a massive flood when the boro is still full.
In short, as much as I like and trust the quality of sxk I’m inclined to go the 5A route based on the loose chimney factor…

Mmm, Good to know. I'll choose SXK, IF I get one, as I just prefer 1 to 1. That's a potential difference that each user could use to get what works best for them...I do prefer the very top o-ring connection, at the 510 nut, to break away much easier than the chimney section o-rings, and have been known to swap o-rings to get the desired result. lol.

I've noticed many threaded aftermarket drip tips tend to fit tightly as well, and will pull apart the strongest of chimney o-rings. That's not tolerated, lol!

The joys of Billets, such bliss!

I think the photos with the renderings might be clouding the issue...in the photos, both versions do seem to show removable chimney. I don't own it, would be nice to get confirmation from owner.

I have the 5Avape, it definitely has a removable chimney. (Threaded) I was impressed with the overall quality.

Put it this way, the 5a is so close to the "original" not even the modder could tell, which is why they started engraving serial numbers on the deck lol.

No doubt the sxk version will be good too, if it had come out sooner I would've tried it, I have the 5a version, loved it so much I bought another as a backup.

Highly recommend the 5a version. Zero o rings, the top cap may feel loose but once it's in the Boro he's it's sweet as, it's not a flaw it's designed that way, highly rate this bridge has to be my most favorite "clone"

Thanks Kamikaze you convinced me.
It’s great to hear other cloners are now investing the bb world. Hopefully we’ll soon get other high quality accessories at reasonable prices. By that I don’t mean cheaper than original Modder goods that are outrageously expensive… I mean a price in relation to what the goods actually are in terms of materials and industrial process... the market is ripe for that now.
