This might as well be labeled as a repost, but new versions of the Stingray clone are becoming available. Even though I have the option I’m not going to cancel my brass version just yet. It has recently become rather clear that the clones of the Stingray are not yet 1:1 due to the finishes on the tubes. That also implies that they are definitely not using the “Phantom Brass” of the original. Now the cloners have gone ahead and created a new version of the mod with a stainless steel brushed finish and even have included a drip tip.
Personally I don’t mind the brushed finish on most mods, the forums would digress. I do like to polish most of my mods, so eventually mine will shed its laser engraving and end up looking just like a Nemesis. All the other parts of this mod are just about the same as the brass version besides the obvious. The general consensus is that Infinite made this version and that is based on the box it comes in. I must add that I do really like the drip tip, I went ahead and ordered a few for myself already.
Here is what Fasttech is saying about it:
- Brushed tubes
- Floating 510 center pin
- Laser engraved logo and serial number
- Silver plated brass contacts
- Stainless steel locking ring
- Bottom magnetic switch
- Houses single 18350/18500/18650 battery (batteries sold separately)
- Comes with a Stingray style 510 drip tip
