    It's a nice mod, size wise a wee bit taller than the pulse but more compact width wise, the pump system works well and is so easy to remove and fill the bottle , no leaks so far. It's well made, nice combination of stainless steel and stabwood. It's for right handed people due to the thumb firing position. The only thing that's bit awkward is operating the pump trigger with the mod whilst your'e firing it, not as intuitive as the Luna with the more traditional squonk bottle which is easy to squonk and fire without thinking about it, if that makes sense.

    So just under 2 months on and mine has developed a leak unfortunately. Over the last few weeks ive noticed the inside of my mod was slightly wet and it wasnt getting worse by the day.



    As per the youtube video above mine seems to be leaking from the pin on the 510. I was contemplating doing the fix but i dont know if theres a correlation between people applying the fix and those with autofiring mods. I can deal woth leaking mods, they dont scare me as much as a autofiring mod.

    Shame really, was my daily beater for quite a few months and loved it. This leaking and the reports of autofiring have really put me off. Im using my geekvape athena for now and less keen to pick up luxotic to use.

    Has anyone found a link between the auto firing and the fix being applied?

    I can't imagine the fix would cause the autofiring problem.

    I suspect once you've noticed the mod has been leaking into the battery area the damage has already been done to the circuit board.

    Cheers,

    Incidentally I was thinking I might try replacing the board with one of these:

    If I get round to it, and can get it to fit without too much bother I'll post my results!

    Mind you, mine does not seem to have leaked massively. It definatrly looks like it just started leaking recently.

    Saying that, im still too paranoid to use it. Think il leave it aside until i cba again


    If you do mod it, do post up your results buddy.

    Had mine for a month before the auto firing started, sent it back for a refund, seems it's a common problem with them. Shame as it was a really nice bit of kit and felt awesome in the hand.

    Just to update this, i contacted ft regarding mine, luckily as mine was still under 6 months they asked me to send a video showing the leak. Once i had done that they agreed for me to return the item to them and they would ship a new one once the old one was recieved. Cant complain, they did resolve it. I had to pay return postage which cost £13 but at least with that £13 i got a working mod again. Without returning it id have had a door stop or paperweight.

    Another example of why ft are one of the better far east suppliers

    I own one of these and for me the mod is too small as I have huge hands, also the rda build space isn't as deep as I would like and I have over squonked it a couple of times so far. It's a well built straight forward pretty device and I'm glad I bought it as my first squonkable rda kit.
