What appeared to be a trend has now officially become an epidemic. We have the Sigelei Swallowtail mod, the Revenant Cartel 160 mod, and the Kangertech K1 mod, and now… drumroll please. The Arthur mod from Arctic Dolphin, in collaboration with Twisted420 and Heaven Gifts.
And what do these mods have in common besides their beautifully hewn stabilized wood enclosures you ask? Price.Twisted420 has arranged this collaboration to bring yet another stab wood mod to the market at a price that just about anybody can afford. As he puts it, “I knew… the code would be broken to where they would be more affordable and China was that code breaker”. The result of that painstaking cryptanalysis is the Arthur mod.
While we don’t have the official spec sheet, here’s what we do know: Crafted from solid 304 stainless steel and clad in stabilized wood, the Arthur is an 80W box capable of variable wattage and temp control (NI/TI/PL/SS) with TCR. A single 18650 battery is installed by removing the disc cover, which has a hinged tab that flips up to give you something to grab – a nice touch.
Priced at $149 retail, the Arthur is currently on preorder at a special price of 79 bucks, and will be shipping in about a month (Feb 20, 2017) from Heaven Gifts.
