Pugsley’s positively predatory review of the Wismec Sinuous Ravage 230 Kit

Regurgitation is ever present in this biz we call vape….biz..?…. we see it constantly especially with the Shenzhen big hitters such as Smok, IJoy etc……a new toy will be released…what feels like…. every few seconds… leaving vapers worldwide bewildered with the overwhelming choice being ‘spewed’ out to our ever eager grabby little hands…

However ….I think people tend to forget that these vast swathes of vape manufacturers are in fact ‘businesses’ and not services that we are entitled to…..it’s aaaaall about the dollar baby, and no amount of raised eyebrows and screams of “WHY DID YOU MAKE ME BUY THIS?!!” will slow this eastern torrent of electronica…..and why?…..Because we….the vaping public….have given them the perception that all vapers….have deep pockets…. and an almost feverish ‘Shinyitus’ that just simply… can never be satiated…..and there is probably more than an element of truth in that…

You wannit…..they’ll sell it to ya….simple as that, and we will buy anything that is marketed well enough…..however…there are two sides to this, on one side we have companies that clearly do regurgitate the same formula over and over again, putting the same chip, same internals, same format…in a slightly different body….and passing it off as ‘new’….because they know full well that those kind of vapers that need the newest fashionable ‘thang’…will buy it ….and then there’s the other kind of company, the companies that have frankly laughable quality control and bring out a device that is so flawed it’s almost as if they never actually tried it for themselves prior to release…or did…knew full well it was shit…and simply marketed the fuck out of it knowing full well that again….once vapers eyes are drawn into this new ‘shiny’ precious…they will simply be powerless to resist…

Safe in the knowledge that once they have sold millions of the shit boxes they can always wait a bit….make an updated model with all issues fixed….and then you’ll buy that one too….double bubble bonus…

Which leads me to what I am reviewing today….kind of….in the usual roundabout kind of vagueish manner that you have all undoubtedly become accustomed to …..

Let’s crack on….

Artery PAL AIO kit review by Mjag

Received the Artery PAL kit from the fine folks at Artery directly for an honest opinion. While MTL devices are generally not my thing it intrigued me as it looks like a Billet Box which goes for over $250 and awhile back was all the rage, even the clones were expensive.
While already available at a few online retailers they best price I could find was $33.35 on pre-order at fasttech: https://www.fasttech.com/search?Artery PAL AIO and here is a tip for faster shipping to US address via fasttech, choose the USPS First-Class via Hong Kong Post (you have to click: “+ show more options” button to find the Hong Kong Post option)

Available in Grey, Red and Black.

Pugsley’s all mouth and no trousers review of the IJOY CAPO Squonk Kit

Starting the new year with a bang!…..that’s what I was waiting for….a very much anticipated device that was going to cater for a vast plethora of vapers and continue with the all too present need to squonk the remaining three hundred and sixty odd days of this newborn year away in a sweet fog filled Utopian bliss…

So I chose wisely…..’what would people really want right now’ is the train of thought I was running with…..we need something that looks the shit…..that squonks…obviously…because that car aint runnin out of petrol any time soon (that’s ‘gas’ to you guys over the pond….you knew that though….I’ll be quiet now) …..it needs to have enough umph to satisfy the majority and for those less experienced that still wanna squeeze the breeze….it needs to be preferably regulated….hmmm….what to choose…

(Rummages frantically in ever growing box of goodies sent over christmas whilst lazily sat around doing close to fuck all other than eat and drink for a very long time)……nope not that…..hmm nice but no……ohh maybe…..nahhh…..DEFINITELY doing that one next…but not now……nope….nope…..definitely not and probably never…..nope…….

….Bingo!

Pugsley’s simplistic yet logical review of the CoilART DPRO 133 Premium Kit

I have a theory…..(oh fuck this should be interesting) … and that theory is this, basically there are two types of people in the world, those that like to be in total control of everything……and those that don’t really give a shit….OK it’s a weak ass vague theory…but bare with…at some point during this review that might just make some sense….to two…maybe three of you, because this theory would appear to be ever present in this vaping universe of ours…..and I’ll explain why…

Now….temperature control……I know for a fact that just saying those very words gets a whole swathe of vapers in a crazy almost hysterical tizz….’how accurate is it’….. ‘can I change the TCR values to match exactly what wire I have’ ….’this feels approximately 0.7 degrees lower than what I was led to believe it would be’ ….’hmm..this porridge is juuuust right’ …these would be the people that like to be in total control, they like things to be the same….every time, because difference is an imperfection and imperfections are not tolerated…not on this side of the fence …..and I can dig it, there’s no judging going on here (pfft) people like what they like, and once they have found that ‘like’…. they don’t need anything else …and that… is the way it must always be….if they can control an exact set of parameters over and over again to obtain that…it just makes things….logical…

And then there’s the ‘other’ type……the type that hates anything uniform, they do something more than three times and all of a sudden they feel they’re in a dreaded…..’routine’….they don’t particularly care for controlling anything….in most cases…..even themselves….in fact they’d be quite happy to just sit back and let someone else do all the controlling…. they can’t be arsed with anything as complicated as ‘settings’ …..who needs that shit…. variable wattage is about as far as these people go with vaping…yet even that…is still a little too ‘controlly’ at times…..the less they have to worry about…the more simple …..life would appear to be…

If you happen to belong to camp ‘controlly’ …you may as well just stop reading right now because today’s offering comes bereft of anything so controlling as ‘inputting settings’ …. menus are a distant memory and even if they were present…there is no screen to view them on…sure…these people do cross over to the mech world, but they will measure precisely what wire they’re using and triple check their figures on Steam engine to obtain a precise and accurate ohms reading…..whereas the other type…will just have a ‘Goldilocks Zone’ ….they know what’s too high or too low and as long as the coils fall somewhere in that zone….they’re quite happy to let the chips fall where they may..

‘Simple’ is the word du jour and this….surprisingly (pfft…again) this is very much the category that I fall into…..I know right?….shocker…..

Pugsley’s ‘squonk if you’re horny’ squonk review of a shit load of squonkers

It’s a funny old word, and I don’t know about you but I for one am a bit sick of explaining myself when asked “what’s that?”

“It’s my squonker”

“It’s your what sorry?”

“My squonker”…..(awkward silence)

“You’re just making words up there’s no such thing as a fucking squonker”

“Fuck you if I was going to make fucking words up I would come up with something better than fucking ‘squonker’ now fuck off and look it up you ignorant fuck….and definitely look it up in the urban dictionary while you’re at it….knob”

I probably shouldn’t speak to my mother like that all things considered but when she asks the same question over and over it get’s a little frustrating and the reaction I get when she does read the urban dictionary definition is almost worth the aggro …

It does indeed appear to have a few different meanings…and ironically the one definition that it resembles the closest is the one that you really don’t want to be reminded of every time you…..squonk…..I’ll leave that to your own research…just make sure there’s no kids around when you do….

Regardless …the fact of the matter is that squonking, even though it has in fact been around for years, is enjoying something of an explosion in popularity just lately….and you would have to be hiding under a rock for you not to notice that every single vape manufacturer on the planet worth it’s salt is cashing in on this latest vape ‘fashion’…..and if by chance a new RDA comes on the market…and doesn’t have a BF pin included?….well….it ain’t gettin in club ‘popular’…simple as…..

Squonking it would seem…..is the new big squeeze…..(really..?)

So…what’s it all about…well, in a nutshell….RDA flavour without the ball ache of having to drip essentially, the idea is sound, although not without it’s cons, so breaking from the normal routine this time around I will be taking a look at 6 popular squonk rigs that are available right now and seeing what indeed the fuck…all the fuss is about…..eesh…just realised…6 specs list’s…..didn’t think this through at all did I …….(sigh) soldier on Pugs…..soldier on….
