The Nemesis Clone
One small note, there is also included a very small ring that I've read referred to as a "beauty ring." It's the fifth piece from left in that photo above. From what I can tell, this little bitty ring is only used when you are using an button-top battery. It adds just enough space in there to make it all snug. I only use flat-top batteries so I had to ditch this little ring, but not before I spent 30 minutes trying to figure why I couldn't snug up my battery completely. This little ring arrives attached to the top cap. I assumed it was part of the cap. I was wrong. If you're using flat-top batteries, beware that you'll need to ditch this little beauty ring.
Overall, I like the mod. But it did take a ton of fiddling to figure out. Let me save you some time. Order of operations is REALLY necessary with this mod. Start at the top and work your way down. The first thing you need to do is to take the top cap off and loosen the screw post underneath down quite a bit. Next, attach your device to the top (atomizer, tank, whatever). Then tighten the screw post up until it's snug and has made contact with your tank. Then screw the whole assembly onto the topmost portion of the Nemesis tubing that you will use. Screw in the bottom logo tube, pop a battery in, add the locking ring, and screw on the bottom button cap. You may need to adjust the screw in the bottom button to get it to work right. If it's really crunchy when you press the button, adjust it. If it fires weakly (not providing enough power) adjust it. It's probably not making good contact. Did I mention this mod is really fiddly?
Even with the magnets, the switch can be a bit crunchy. It really wants to be pressed completely straight on and not at any sort of angle. Again, this is a fiddly little mod that makes my new Kamry K100 look like a walk in the park. In the end, I think the magnets were a good upgrade though. They'll last forever where the springs will weaken over time and eventually wear out. I also like that the magnets I bought are strong enough that if I forget to set the locking ring, I can still set it down without it firing on its own. The springs that come with it are soft enough that it may have. If you do the magnet upgrade, it's super easy. Search YouTube for a video on it. Just be careful not to lose the little brass pin.
The Fast Tech Version To Buy
Fast Tech sells two different versions of the Nemesis clone. One sells for like $18.50 (Item 1604509) and the other sells for $24.63 (Item 1448300). If you are wanting to use the colored tubes, you NEED TO BUY THE MORE EXPENSIVE ONE! On each of the colored tube pages on FastTech, it clearly states which version they are compatible with. BE CAREFUL TO ORDER THE RIGHT ONE.
The Fast Tech Colored Nemesis Tubes
What's so frickin cool about that is that you can actually use the 18350 colored tube and combine it with the stainless top tube that came with the original Nemesis clone to produce a sort of mix of the two. Like this:
Another word of warning: From what I can tell in the forums, THESE TUBES ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE HCIGAR CLONE OF THE NEMESIS. If you already own a Nemesis clone, I can't guarantee that these tubes will work with it. They might. They might not. You could always order them for the $10. If they don't work, you'll likely have to plop down the $25 for the Fasttech clone, but I don't suppose it'd be the end of the world to have two Nemesis's.
In the end, I have my blue Nemesis and spent a total of less than $50 on the mod, the blue tubes, and the magnet upgrade (twice). It took more than a month for it all to get here, but I'm pleased with it and would do it again. Here's a pic of mine sitting on my end table tonight with the little IGO-4 on top of it.
If, like me, you are reallllllly wanting a Nemesis in full technicolor, then I can say, if done the right way, you should end up with a reasonable result. I'm really pleased with mine.
