Big update today. I’ll get the links out of the way for the impatient. I’ve completely changed my Kanthal offerings and dramatically lowered the price per foot, I’ve dropped the price on Ekowool, and I’ve added the HCigar Nemesis Clone in Copper, Steel, and special 2 tone Copper/Steel versions. All come with a free set of Magnets for the switch upgrade.
Ok, now for the details.
First, a word on clones. I don’t really like them. However, I’m a store owner and I’ve always said that I would provide what I consider to be the best option at various price points so that ‘all’ vapers, regardless of budget, could get the best equipment possible. At the moment, the best “inexpensive” mechanicals on the market right now are all clones. The Nemesis clone from Hcigar was my choice. These have no logos or serial numbers on them. They are not pretending. They are clones though and part of me still hates listing them, but like I said, I have to offer what I consider to be the best options to you guys and for those hunting a good quality, budget mechanical, this is one of the best options out there.
Now, onto the device. I’ve got 4 total ‘looks’ going on. The Steel, the Copper, and 2 combination 2 tones. With the 2 tones, I’ve taken the AFC, Beauty, and Locking rings and swapped them. The 510 head itself matches the body, but the AFC ring has been changed to give two different copper/steel two tone devices. I also have the complete Steel and Copper versions available as well. All of these will ship with 2 magnets in the box for doing the switch upgrade. They are direct from Hcigar, who, as far as clone shops go, I trust more than most to put out a quality product.
In addition to my clone launch, I’ve also made some changes to wick and wire. The big one is my Kanthal. All my Kanthal A1 is now offered in 30ft lengths just like before, but instead of 1 30ft piece wrapped up on a bobbin, I’ve cut it down into 1ft lengths and packaged it folded in a 6inch tube. The “useability” of this new set up is amazing. you can pull a pre-cut wire out and start a coil on one end, cut and put the rest in the tube without having to worry about a “spoolsplosion” that we’ve all experienced at least once. If you need to do a twisted wire coil, just pull out the whole 1ft piece, grab the bend and twist away. If you know you only need ~6″ to make your coil, snip it at the bend and pull out a single 6inch length. It’s easy, stores well, and more importantly than all of that… my new process is CHEAP.
Previously Kanthal was ~8.50$ per 30ft on SteamMonkey. Now my prices are MUCH lower. 32 and 30awg are 3$ per 30ft, 28awg is 4$, and I’ll be adding 26 and 24awg soon (price TBD, but I’m anticipating 5$ per 30ft).
I’ve also dropped the prices on my Ekowool across the board. I still have 2mm hollow, 3mm hollow, and 3mm solid core with prices of $3.50, $4, and $5 respectively.
Also, in light of the Nemesis launch, I’ve got the RSST and the Smok Magneto on DEEP discount to clear the shelves.
