This is actually more of a prebuy than a preorder. There is a MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) set, but I have no doubt that it will be reached at this price. The original Stingray was made by JD Tech in the Philippines. Now it has been recast in China and it still looks beautiful.
The Stingray really has a design is like no other. Sometimes I look around at the mods available and wonder why everyone keeps making the same old bottom firing tube mods and then something like this comes along. There’s a reason the original is sold out everywhere. This mod has an excellent combination of functionality and subtle accents. Even the logo on this mod looks great.
The details have not been confirmed but based on the photos and current availability I am going to assume this is the Tobeco version. They have had this mod listed on their page for a few weeks now. I’ve seen the clone at other places online for over $70, and it sounds like a 1:1 clone. The top cap has a floating 510 connector. The stainless steel ring is molded to provide air flow for atomizers that require it. The brass is listed as “Phantom Brass” which will give the mod a bright, low maintenance shine. I wonder if the clone will use standard polished brass instead. The switch has some excellent innovation to its design which reminds me of the Nemesis with its insulated magnetic switch. The Stingray incorporates battery vents, and mounted magnets to improve on the reliable design. The contacts are all silver plated copper or brass for optimal performance. Everything sounds great with this clone and I’m real excited to compare it to the Nemesis clone.
I will post more details as they become available. Expected release date is 2/28 Get your prebuy here: http://www.whitestagvapor.com/stingray-clone/
