fufda mod

1. FUFDA Mod by Ursimian

The First Ursimian Fog Dispensing Apparatus Mod, or simply called the FUFDA mod, is a mechanical mod that follows the current trend of clean, simple, minimalist designs.

Probably the thing that stands out the most for me with this mod is the unique connector. The top cap’s pure copper pin makes it a hard hitting mod, and also serves as the firing mechanism. This eliminates the use of a locking ring, and this is great for someone like me because I hate having to lock my device whenever I set it down, and unlock it again when I vape.

Let’s not forget its fog dispensing capabilities. The solid copper center pin gives powerful conductivity, turning you into a human fog machine. Made of stainless steel, it fits 18650 batteries only and also has room for 2 18350 batteries stacked. It’s a hard hitting mod that is a must buy for all you fog fanatics out there!



2. Ragnaroak Stainless Steel Mod by VLS

Another high quality affordable mod is the nicely built Ragnarok SS mod made of high quality stainless steel, and has that premium look and feel. The only engraving on this mod is the Ragnarok logo on the bottom firing button.

Speaking of the firing button, this mod has both bottom and top pins made of high grade copper. You can see in the pics how massive the copper pin is, probably an indicator of how hard it hits?


The advantages I see the Ragnarok has over the FUFDA is that it is priced slightly cheaper, and is compatible with different battery sizes (18350, 18500, and 18650). It has near-zero voltage drop meaning you get a consistent vape until your battery permits. Another cool feature is the peek insulators which controls and distributes the heat. This is a great entry-level authentic mod because of the price, performance, and how beautiful it looks.



3. Ragnarok Copper Mod by VLS

If copper is your thing, then this 99.9% pure red copper mod is what you should get. All copper everything, the copper Ragnarok is a monster.

Me personally, I think this looks better between the two. This one is priced right under a hundred US dollars, a great price for a premium full copper mechanical mod.


tugboat mod

4. Tugboat Mod by Flawless

The Tugboat mod was released following the success of the Tugboat RDA. This is another mod that gives a lot from it’s price standpoint.

Aside from being a well-made and great performing mechanical mod, the two things that stand out for me are the awesome colors and being a light weight mod.

Youhave 4 colors to choose from: gun metal grey, black, baby blue, and white (which is an additional $10). The baby blue and white Tugboat mods usually get the most compliments from other people.

The reason why it is light weight is because it is made of high grade aluminum. This is a good mod to have for vapers who like to vape on the go. Instead of having bulgy/sagging pockets, you can slip this in your pocket and not have to worry about it. Easy to carry around, and sits flush with the Tugboat RDA of course!


assasin mod

5. The Assassin Mod by Bay City Vapor

This little thing of beauty is the Assassin mod, another high end mod WITHOUT the high end price. In fact, it’s the cheapest mod on the list priced under $50.

It’s made of high quality stainless steel, and black chrome plated to give it that ninja-ish type of look (which is a great look indeed).

Another neat feature is the dual 510 modes, which enables direct contact or standard contact. For those of you who aren’t aware of what direct contact is, it’s basically a hole on the top cap where the atomizer makes direct contact with your battery. Direct contact shoots direct power, and it also reduces the size of the mod. Pair it with a mini RDA like the black Freakshow Mini, and you turn this into a stealthy little vaping ninja. The polycarbonate bottom button get’s rid of all hot button issues.

So hopefully you found this post to be useful in buying your next mod. Please leave a comment below and tell me what you think, or if you had a vape related question wanted addressed, I would be happy to help and dedicate a blog post to that question of yours.
