How's 5Avape?
Hey all,

I saw Todd review this a while back and it looks very tiny, comfy (he said its the most comfy boro device he's ever held) and lightweight compared to the BB and others. I'm wondering how 5Avape is with their QC/Clones/Etc before I pull the trigger on this. Thanks in advance!

^Same and I'll ask in this post as well does this include the tank and bridge shown in the white version listing? If so can anyone identify the bridge?

Yes, good questions. It almost looks like a Mobb Mini or something in there and one ugly drip tip lol.

The OG is machined from a block of delrin, this is molded PET plastic, according to the listing. It's definitely not going to feel as nice in the hand.

edit: lol, it also lists PEI as the material. PEI is ultem. This thing is not PEI.

probably, but remember that PEI can be black as well...I own a few black Ultem rda caps. Still, it's likely delrin.

Oh, and for 50.00, don't expect any boro or bridge - that's just not feasible at the price listed.

Yeah, it's not machined PEI or POM for $50. It's molded PET.

That's 100% for sure, even a drip tip won't come with it I would imagine. How's molded PET? it says its only around 100g in weight.

The most common application for PET is plastic bottles.

Ah I see, injection molded, bottles, plastic components, etc. I'm down with that. It'll be super lightweight and a magic eraser can clean it up when it gets scratched. 57 days dispatch time though.. eeeek

I've found their mods to be on par with SXK. No issues that I've experienced anyway. :-)

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...
