PROS
Finish is a nice even brushed Build is solid Threads are very good
CONS
Oily out of the box
Came to me very complete, with spare spring, insulators and lots of o-rings. Took an hour or two to get the smell off of it. I built it to one ohm using 26 gauge A1 Kanthal, 2mm, 8 wraps, and organic cotton. The screws were a bit small and took a bit of trying to get that wire to trap. The juice control works smoothly and well. I love how I can just pour in the juice right out of the bottle, especially since it seems to go through it fast. The air is not as loose as I might like but I am not going to try to enlarge it until I understand it a lot more. It's a beautiful piece and I would hate to ruin it. I am using it on a mech, so around 16-17 watts. The vapor is not as thick and warm as some RBAs but it's very good in comparison to my Kayfun Lite V2s with enlarged air. It's what I would call a very civilized and acceptable vape. I think I may try it at point 8 later, but it seems to be doing very well right now. Would I buy it again? Yes Would I sell it for what I paid for it? Get your own! New features that I really like are the glass tank, the effortless filling, the ability to rebuild with it full, and the sexy looks. I swapped out the drip tip for a smaller diameter and the flavor is even better.

PROS
Finish, Fit, Function, Complete
CONS
None
Basically, all of the people who have condemned this atty from looking at pictures, are wrong. It builds and vapes great, and comes with everything that you need to do that. It fits almost seamlessly onto my SMPL SS mod. It was very clean when I received it. No burrs or problems. The horizontal chimney build that I put in it works very well and the connections are as good as you should wish for in any atty. It's has a tight working space and is not going to build itself for you. It's not for a novice. If you know what you are doing, how to think out a build in advance, and have some experience with various coiling techniques, it should work for you. The supplied drip tips all will take 510 drip tips as well. The greatly bemoaned screw is in the bag, and, from the looks of the one shown in the pictures of other model, fits even better. That other model may have a better fitting one in it's bag too. I don't care, I'm happy with my choice in getting this one. I'm not here to sell you anything. Just telling you that if you want a Marquis, this is a very good one.

PROS
Finish Fit Appearance Simplicty
CONS
Switch edge is sharp
I loved the looks of this and thought that I would give it a try. I wasn't disappointed. Since it looks good with my Kayfun 4, it's become my defacto all day mod. The switch is very smooth, light, and short throw since I replaced the spring with a pair of Nemesis magnets. Edge to edge firing is no problem at all. The edge of the switch felt sharp to me, not cutting sharp but precise sharp so I broke the edge and smoothed it a bit with a ceramic tile. The locking ring is easy to turn, smooth and creates a steady base of the switch when not in use. The bottom contact is very well made and just a tiny snug with some pliers secures it to where it doesn't back out. There is no insulator so good battery wraps are a must. The top delrin, copper 510 pin, and battery rattle adjustments are no problem with your fingers even though they are not knurled. It seems to hit very well and reliably. There is a characteristic of the grooves that makes it feel warm and secure to the touch. If you like the style, I think you will enjoy it.

PROS
Build, finish, fit,
CONS
awfully oily
Hits thick and hard. Not for cloud chasers. Excellent flavor. No leaks at all. Easy as pie to build. Very repeatable results with the building. Does exactly as you wish. I take a piece of 1.5 mm silica and wrap Japanese cotton around it like a burrito. I pull that through the coil and lie the silica down in the well and stick the cotton out the holes. Even if it was to seep some, I would probably never know it, doing it that way. Looks much better on top of my King knurled 26650 mod than it does in the pictures. Packaging is excellent too. If you stocked these in your store, I think think somebody like me would buy one.

PROS
Nice look and weight Good air solid construction fit seems ok on the surface
CONS
Screws are too long and their heads too large to prevent shorts.
It doesn't come with shorter screws, but they will short to the cap. I built it with 8 immaculate coils that all fired in harmony. It gave me the single worst freaking hit that I have ever had since I started vaping. I think it must have been 90 percent insulator. My switch was glowing and the mod was immediately hot. The cap was definitely shorting to one or more of the top screws. My build was 8 x 28 gauge, 2mm coils for a total of .16 ohms. When not shorting the vape is nice but heats up the atty and mod very quickly. Not all of the screws stand out the same distance but mostly they all measure the same, so the posts must have a bit of randomness. Because of the heat, it needs to breath so I did away with the cotton in the center and just went with tufts over the vertical coils. That passes enough air for a nice vape. If you get this, think about grinding out the cap reliefs or shortening some of the screws.
