Purchased in store, Saturday 3 Jun 2017. The guys were helpful as always. Did not mind losing my online points - - - as every once in awhile I like to see the staff's faces. They have ALWAYS taken proper care of this old Marine and Sailor.
Picked up the Silver-Carbon Fiber version of the RX-300, and a SMOK TVF-12 to replace my less than four month old SMOK GX-350 quad-battery Pipe with the TVF-8. The chip died. My Smok G-Priv continues to perform reliably. But when toking at over 100 watts - - - I NEED a quad-battery pipe, so as not to have to carry a ton of spare batteries along.
This one does the job quite nicely. The build quality is 35% or so better than the Smok GX-350, and the CF version weighs about 40% less. The Duodendary (12) coils in the TVF-12 perform really well at 75 watts or above. Plenty of flavor and vapor. We shall see how they last compared to TVF-8 coils.
Battery Life on HG2's at 80 watts is totally nuts. I am a high count hitter. As I type this, I still have approx 25% charge after 500 hits - - - so for "normal" folks, expect a solid three days or so between charges.
Best pipe I have owned yet. Bar none.
