The Wismec 510 strikes again


#1

There’s lots of reports if the press fit 510 treads separating completely from the mod. Grimm Green reported that this has happened to his mod too. The one I have is starting to feel a bit loose and I only have it a week. Buyer beware when it comes it Wismec yet again.


Pugsley's all too familiar 'Déjà review' of the Wismec Predator 228 Elabo kit

I’ve just been talking to a guy over on POTV about this, I hadn’t heard about it…no surprises though really eh…I did say in my review :persevere:


#3

The worse thing about it is that they took a short cut when they didn’t need to. It performs far better than the alien does.


#4

I also started to get a sticky fire button the day before yesterday, I’d fire and it would carry on firing a second or 2 after I’d released, and the longer I fired it the longer it stayed on, so I updated the firmware and it seems to have sorted it, still…looking like it might of been rushed out maybe…


#5

Sad to hear this. I’ve had mine for almost a month now and have been using it daily. So far still good. Knock on wood, or my head, whichever is closer.


#6

That’s exactly what I thought too. I really does seem like a rush job. Why the fuck they wouldn’t make sure they got the 510 right is beyond me. I’m really impressed with the way it handles TC too, it’s a shame they had to go and fuck it up.


#7

It is cheap though…can’t forget that, it’s barely a mid shelf mod, built to a price and mass produced, when i spend on another mod it’ll be a Whiterose, I rarely use anything else, already saving my Paypal for my next lol


#8

I didn’t really pay much attention to the build quality. It’s going for around $40 on most of the Chinese sites and that seems about right to me. I can over look most things with a mod as long as the TC is good, and it really is on the Predator. Much better than the Alien. I’ve been saving towards a Whiterose mod too, Unfortunately the electric, phone and council tax bills can’t really see priorities the same way I do.

***Cough***Whiterose Mod won’t do that.Cough

Allergies you know.


#10

When money is saved it is the last mod you will ever buy.


#11

stupid bills…don’t they realise the importance of a whiterose mod??..ridiculous

I almost feel like emailing them and telling them so…

There should be a whiterose tax…goes out of your wages every month and then you get sent a mod when there’s enough…:grinning:


#12

I don’t doubt that for a second.


#13

I’m going for it on the next one, I know exactly what I want :ok_hand:


#14

You won’t regret it.


#15

I think you should run in the local elections here. I can get you an Irish passport no worries


#16

oh I know…

I will have my collection…and this one WILL stay in the house…lol


#17

Bullshit, you will take it on a date.


#18

maybe a brief honeymoon…

Ha. I was sitting in the vape shop awhile back. The discussion was about Wismec. I ranted my troubles with the RX200 when they first came out. Also about the fact customer support never got back with me after numerous attempts to contact them. A customer calls in. A Wismec device wasn’t recognizing their atty, or any atty. I laughed. It’s really funny because I have been in their other times and heard the manager talking top someone about a failing Wismec device. I’ll never buy another Wismec product.

I would buy the Noisy Cricket II 25 all day long. Great mod. But out of the 3 Wismec devices I’ve owned, that’s the only one worth a crap. :frowning:

And don’t even get me started about the Theorem!
