Skyline R clone on the horizon..
So, there has been a lot of negative vibes for vaping right now...

and so it pleases me to let ya'll know, in case ya didn't (smh why I'm revealing it idk)

there is definitely an Ulton Skyline R rta coming out soon.... I'm sooooo psyched...

Just worried about the timing and avoiding shipping issues...

Now I just need them to come out with the new Link'd rba clone ASAP...
(since I missed the Bridg'd and Haku train... forever apparently) ...

I can't wait for it!

-Tony

Mentioned here on Thursday.

And although FT sold the original styled, there's no guarantee they'll stock the new one.

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

Yes, it is. Nobody gets it perfect all of the time, but Ulton's got a great track record. (As usual, though, even if the machining's bang on, there may be some o-ring tweakage required for things to operate smoothly. With the Skyline R, that will mean the JFC in particular, just like in the original Skyline, but the Wankel rotor thing on the R should make it less of a problem than it was on the original.)

good to know, as I usually only opt for SXK or YFTK

@typefighter dude, sorry I didn't notice earlier in the thread you asked about Ulton quality... Yes. I used to only think SXK or Yftk were worth it... Not true.. Ulton is usually a pinch above them. They are the most established, usually a touch more expensive, but make true 1:1 ratio clones.. Ulton has fewer clones.. but quality... Whereas say SXK... They have a bigger selection..

Many of the others I mentioned, Coppervape, Kindbright.. they have their better products... Can be more hit n miss.. They aren't as popular anymore though... Hope this helps .. Happy huntings.. PS - the best known original Skyline clone....Coppervape... ; )

Ulton clones are fine, but rarely one to one. "Made by Ulton" on the bottom ruins it for me sometimes. I definitely can't agree that Ulton are "more established" than SXK or YFTK...that's just crazy talk! SXK and YFTK were making near 1 to 1 Billet Box clones before Ulton as a brand even existed.

The scary truth is that Ulton, YFTK, Coppervape, etc...pretty much all the clonemakers except SXK, are showing obvious signs of slowing production, with Ulton or YFTK only releasing products sporadically, and even then only "trending" devices like MTL tanks or Billet/DOT bridges. Coppervape has turned into DB Coopervape, because nobody has seen them! I hope all these companies continue to weather the storm, but things come, things go...The industry is already paring down, with less manufacturers making more brands...what this means to us is good overall clone quality...A CNC machine works the same no matter what country it's located in!
What does he mean when he says words?
