Splinter by RBT
I personally would not buy another RBT product. Especially after I seen the mica dust come out of my OG splinter. I been sucking on that for years and didn't know.
I use the splinter as a cheap alternative back up to take out instead of worrying about breaking a tubo evic.
I'm glad I opened the splinter in the end and have still been using it. But would happily sell it off now I don't want it. Plus I have 3 tubo heaters I could use now.
I'd advise anyone that's got a splinter to open it up and stuff some glass in the coil and clean it out.
Or buy one of the newer ones from other companies that are rebuild able and can see inside. Think mistvape impcognito rebuilds and a few others.
And like you say. Bad odor. They gone downhill. My Z arrived dead and full of glue. As did yours.
