The V3TRONIX Flip
well its arrived, with a not so happy, soggy, postman.
After exchanging comments about the wet wether, my focus turned to the package from Cloud9Vaping, after opening I discover the usual purple crate paper neatly wrapping the goods, held together with a C9V sticker.

After getting through that there is a carry pouch, that looks like it can be mounted on a belt with a velcro fastened flap. Inside that was the mod, and that was also wrapped in white crate paper....at last the mod...........

So lets start with the CNC Engraving.............

Hopefully you can see from my photos, the engraving is deep and tastefully designed,
But some will find a little sharp for there tastes, its defiantly 3D, but most enjoyable to look at, and feel.

Now lets look at the Mod in it's sum of parts.....

İmage

Not a complete takedown but it's enough to see whats going on inside.

I don't know if the switch can be striped down I'll leave that to somebody else to play with, just watch out for the BB and the spring!!!

In use..... I can see why Lisa (From C9V) ran off with this mod, and didn't want to give it back, it just works, and arguably its got a proper place for the Kick to fit, and not just an after thought for a change.......

the Locking switch is a quarter turn to lock/unlock and is not likely to unlock in the pocket and nor is it likely to auto fire if placed down unlocked, the insulation for the switch is a rubber O ring that can fall out, you do get a spare ( I can see Phil having a moan with that. )

The size isn't to big even with a 18650+Kick, some clever thinking has gone into this device to keep it as sensibly sized as possible.

Now when Scott reviewed the .50cal, He felt that VTronix had wasted there skills, and instead they should have made a proper mod, well if you take away the engraving then thats what you've got.

In all its a nice device, it's expensive, but its made in the USA and thats why it's expensive, is it worth buying? well for me...... yes, I love it......but then the engraving is like Marmite.....you rather like it, or you don't.

Hope you found my first impressions/review helpful and enjoyable. Smiling

At first when I seen the c9 pictures I wasn't sure about it, but it certainly grows on you

Nice to see some close ups

Thanks, the pictures on C9V are good, but not enough to see what's going on clearly. I dug out the light box and my bridge camera and snapped away in super micro. Smiling

RE: The V3TRONIX Flip
I have to ask though, apart from 30 minutes worth of machine 3D engraving, what makes it different from (or better than) many other tube mods?

Is there something apart from that which would make it a must have ?

Yes, it's pretty - but £250 worth of pretty? ScratchChin
