I got the email too. I really don't know much about this mod or the makers and their tag line "second to none". Might be that they will put out a hell of an mod but I'm not digging the tapered shape right now.

Its 22mm at the top tapers to 24 and back to 23 at the bottom. They didn't really post up stuff stating why they decided to do it like this. In fact, not too much info at all for a mod that will cost $210.

I'm on the fence right now. Will ponder til the 31st.

Edit: I really dig the logo though.

Same exact situation for me. I just got on the list just in case I really want it once they release more information.

My only question is if they're Including all size tubes In their next batch or are they selling them separately. If they include them I might have to wait for the second batch.

Are there any actual photos? The pics on that site, the ones I could find, are small and just look like teasers.

Got the 'Pay before the 31st or lose your spot' email notice. Still almost 3 weeks but they really need to put out some solid pics.

Thanks for the heads-up, I just hopped on the list myself. I guess we'll see how it goes.

A few more pics there than on the web site. Love the logo and apparently deep engraving. Button bottom looks nice as well. Brass or silver plated adjustable pins are expected nowadays so nothing unusual there.

Not too keen on the beveled top and tapered tube as far as looks go but it would probably make it more comfortable to hold and use. #torn

They really need to put up more photos fully assembled and topped. A video wouldn't be too bad either.

The website seems to indicate that the tubes will be a separate purchase:

"This is the Cartel V1 18650 Mod Tube which has all the engravings and will fit a standard 18650 battery
$49.00"

"This is the Cartel V1 18500 Mod Tube which has all the engravings and will fit a standard 18500 battery
$49.00"

Found in the Mod accessories section. So are we talking over $300 for a fully optioned mod? It sure sounds that way. I may drop my name off of the list.

yeah, I noticed that shortly after I posted this. I wish they chose to start with 18650s rather than 350s though.

Engravings look dope, but I'm not getting the different sizes on the tube.

got on the list, but I'll probably drop out. I like the simplicity of it all, but the tapered tubes and rings just don't do it for me.
