    Is it safe to talk shit about this tank here?
    Mine leaks like a BP Oil rig

    Mine did until I closed off the juice flow control most of the way.

    Original poster had the same experience with the same solution.

    Tried that

    Going to try wicking with that bacon stuff, if it's still in herpes mode, it'll just get donated.
    Great idea in theory but augvape needs a lobotomy

    Yup... Its a free leaker and the machining sucks anyway.

    Back to the billow3 -this thing is trash

    The Roxettes will have a conniption if you actually say anything bad about the Boreas or the Merlin. I wanted one until I did a little reading and reviewing.

    Ah yes, I forgot. Roxy exited ecf and joined VU
     
  12. SteveS45

    SteveS45 Fade to black.................

    Yes, and now left the VU because of the BS. Has not been back as far as I know.

    Actually Roxy got booted from ECF and branded a Vendor which she is not.

    So I'm a bit confused now, do you like Roxy @SteveS45 or are you saying you don't really care, or just that it was an example of drama following people?

    Roxy is a very nice person, but she only as far as I know consulted on the design and has nothing to do manufacturing. But I like to call it like it is and for the majority of the members it is Gods Gift to vaping and the greatest ever. But from what I have seen there is no QC. Good support for parts missing but holes not tapped or drilled. Poor machining and coated with machine oil. Thing like that. But Roxy is a good person.

    I've got one, doesn't leak a drop. The machining is flawless.
    I'm just not impressed with the flavor density. That's a big deal to me.
    It's the design...

    Plus I'm gettin lazy since I discovered the Aspire SS coilheads. Dam they're good.
    I'm gonna have me an RTA sale one day...

    Wonder where it is getting made and what the volume is?

    I'd say invite her here but it sounds like it might cause more problems than it's worth...

    I'm kind of the same way with my Horizon Phantoms which is unfortunate because they didn't catch on and have been discontinued. Just stocking up on coils now but they did come with an RBA head so push comes to shove I can try building a vertical coil in the thing. Just not looking forward to it.

    I do not know her that well to invite her here. Now shark so many complaints on the machining even on the VU. Some saying the parts bag or missing components so not even usable out of the box.
