Sumac Stag Review – Dishing The Dirt On This Super Squonk Mod

So Vapesmarter and I got our heads together, and decided that he should team up with Ceekays Vape Shack and become a little more involved…. by allowing me to review a mod that he made, but didn’t make for me! (brave chap…. right VS!) Meaning I have no attachment to, or investment in this mod at all, and it will be reviewed as I see it.

So, he sent me out the Sumac Stag for me to cast my critical and beady eyes over… and have a play around with it, bit of squonking and all that! Bearing in mind I am not a professional squonker … you boys are way better at that!

Firstly its wood! Sumac Staghorn wood to be precise (I’ve never heard of that before!) Yep I know I’m not hugely into just plain wood, but this is shiny wood, Stabwood? It does give a depth to the colouring and grain. Nice and smooth to hold, but it does have this gnarled (live) edge to one side,  It also has this same kind of live edge on the squonk bottle door. Now I like this little touch, it gives the mod some character, and a little bit of cheeky personality too :yes: Continue reading “Sumac Stag Review – Dishing The Dirt On This Super Squonk Mod”

Asmodus Stride VR-80 CK S Limited Edition

So I’ve been wanting one of these for a while, in fact pretty much since I got the Minikin V2 (which I still haven’t reviewed yet!) Anyhow long story short, we had a new Chinese vendor on the forum, and I noticed that they had the Stride on the site at an extremely good price, so I bit the bullet and ordered one.

2 weeks later a box found its way into my porch and there was my CKS! At first I was a bit worried that it was a clone… After taking the cellophane off the box, the first thing I noticed was how scratched the bottom of the box was, strange… I mean its brand new, why would it look like someone had been pushing it across gravel?

Punk Juice – ‘Patti’ Good or Downright ‘Rotten’?

I was pretty amazed last week to be approached by someone and asked if I would like to review a new e-liquid range called Punk Juice, I was even more surprised when I learned that Ashley (the guy that contacted me) was the owner of ELFC!  ohhh (I get my jax flavours from there! lol)

He offered to send me the full range of Punk Juice, which I declined when I discovered one was grape flavor. Nothing against you grape lovers, but ever since I tried a pretty yukky grape 6 years ago, I haven’t been able to bring myself to try it since (although that may now have changed since about half way down this page?)…. anyhow moving on.

Yihi SX Mini G Class Kevlar – First Thoughts

Well this is the most expensive piece of vaping equipment that I have bought for years, I have desperately wanted one of these since I first saw them a couple of months ago, but have held off due to the constant battle in my mind of “Do I really want one?” “Will I use it?” “Will I get it and then actually hate it?”

That being said I went ahead and got one anyways! Typical woman thing to do right!  But I am pretty glad that I did. This thing comes in a box, and a bag! Its like a pandora bracelet! Well the packaging is… Continue reading “Yihi SX Mini G Class Kevlar – First Thoughts”

SMOK ProColor TC 225W Review

I know its another SMOK review, but I’ve been using this for a couple of weeks now and have to say I really like it.
Its a cheeky chappie of a mod, loads of cool features (if you like quirky and LED lights) and I just can’t help but keep picking it up and using it.

Ok I bought the kit, so the mod and a baby beast tank (which I also love  :yes: )

Size and Shape

First off, its a chunky mod, and heavy too (by my standards anyway) but then I guess most dual battery mods are fairly heavy. This would be my limit weight wise. So its around the same size as the Alien, probably a little bit bigger. The Alien is actually a little more comfy to hold, but I think this may be due to the LED lighting on the procolor which is raised slightly and kind of… I was going to say irritating, but not so much irritating as noticeable.

‘Storm’ – A DNA75 Stabwood Hybrid Mod Made Just For Me!

So today I took delivery of the gorgeous ‘Storm’ a hybrid DNA75 single battery mod, made to my specification by the fantastic Vapesmarter. I assume its hybrid because its Resin and wood?? Stabwood? I’m not sure, I’m not technical enough to know why its a hybrid….  :ashamed:

Storms Creator

Anyhow before I start on ‘Storm’ I just want to say a few words about Vapesmarter. The guy is a legend! Seriously, he took my ideas and made them happen. And he took my impatience all in good faith (I would have told me to ‘sod off’) but he was calm and pleasant, so kudo’s to him for not telling me where to go! Lol Continue reading “‘Storm’ – A DNA75 Stabwood Hybrid Mod Made Just For Me!”

The Aspire Speeder – Boring!

Oh my goodness, the Aspire Speeder… what can I say, apart from I really do not like this mod at all. It just does nothing for me. I look at it and think ‘M’eh!’ and that really is about it.

Not sure what it is about it, it performs ok, its easy enough to use, it doesn’t look too bad, but I cannot bring myself to muster up any love for it in the slightest!

Dual “Staggered Fused Clapton” build – By tiddler

Hi folks, following on from a previous blog ‘Should you make your own coils?’ I thought it would be great to follow a member of our forum on his first attempt at making a more difficult coil, the Staggered Fused Clapton.

Sooo…. Lets start at the beginning 🙂

It all started out sort of okay

Today I had a go at doing a spaced Clapton using the button method and after MUCH swearing I managed to get something vaguely resembling what I was aiming at.
The ultimate goal was to attempt a staggered fused Clapton  :yes:
Except … By now, my patience and concentration had pretty much flown out the window  :xx:
However, at this point, things were still looking promising  :yes:

London Fire-fighters Are Backing Vaping!

Vapers around the UK will be pleased to hear that London Fire-fighters are declaring that vaping is indeed safer than smoking. The fire-fighters are backing PHE (Public Health England) in their Stoptober campaign to get smokers to switch to vaping, as a way to also reduce the numbers of smoking related fires caused in the UK.

Statistics show that there were 3580 smoking related fires in the last 3 years, and only 15 vaping related fires. There were 66 fire related deaths, and 0 vaping relating deaths!

So not only is vaping better for our health, we are less likely to die in a fire caused by a carelessly discarded cigarette or falling asleep with a burning cigarette in our fingers.

Sounds good to me! And I would just like to say to the London Fire-fighters – “Thank you” 😀
