I’ll admit right now, I was more than a little intrigued when I first heard about the items I am presenting to you today…and why?….well when a company brings out a ‘thing’…..and ‘that’ thing tends to be in the top 5 ‘things’ of 2017 ….in almost every vapers ‘my favourite thing of last year’ list then…..you can’t not be interested in what they’re going to come out with next…..because whatever that thing is….it could either build on the success of that last ‘thing’…..or just turn out to be that ‘awkward second album’, thus labeling you a one hit wonder….your failure only bolstering the success of other people’s ‘things’….while they look down on you…and shit on your once impeccable reputation…..
The company I am talking about is OBS, and more specifically their ‘home run’ RTA of yesteryear….the Engine. The Engine sat high in the best RTA’s of 2017 list for a vast swathe of vapers, and deservedly so….that thing was a leak proof flavour machine, almost perfect in every way, and is indeed still enjoyed to this day by vapers the world over, however….trends change, there is a ‘fashion’ to vaping and like any fashion it continuously evolves, and if your RTA ain’t day-glo purple with bubble glass and a matching swirly resin 810 drip tip….it ain’t considered as….’sick’…..anymore….
Form over function unfortunately….sells.
So….a change of direction was needed….why make another ‘thing’..when the ‘thing’ you made was good enough?!…As the new designs came in for the next ‘thing’ …OBS’s choice was simple….
FUCK IT!……we’re making a mod….
