Reviewer comments on business characteristics
In its box black cardboard type sheath, this mod is perfectly protected. This is a relatively limited numbered, handcrafted serial piece.
Rather small (69 mm), it will ship only 18350 type batteries for a vape in all discretion.
This mod is a mechanic, simple and neat design, with the main settings for flush mounts with all atos 510 connection.
Its price is certainly high for this type of object without any electronic control or security, but it is an original creation designed in France and manufactured by Vapeprod in partnership with Cédric Persan, moder of Limoux. Note that Evaps currently offers the kit DogFather + Doggy Style (the atomizer of the same moder) that does not lack class for a total price well below the addition of the two products purchased separately.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The body is made of stainless steel (316 L), the contacts and the spring are plated with silver for an excellent resistance to oxidation, the switch is lockable (screw ring), the contact of the bottom cap is adjustable (screw) and you have on the top cap 2 possible settings for the positive connection: one for the flush position of the ato (from above) and one for the contact with the battery.
We are in the presence of a mod mecha last generation in terms of design and settings options, which is more evolved in short.
Switch Bottom cap Lock ring
The finishes and assemblies are perfect, the effective settings, the switch is soft to the handling and its course can be limited to 1mm.
Positioned not locked, standing, with an ato of 55g it does not trigger untimely firing.
It is beautiful, solid and sized for female handcuffs, what could I find him negative?

Reviewer's comments on functional features
In operation, once the adjustments have been made, we have equipment with a minimum energy source in this diameter, the 18350 are not known for their CDM nor their longevity for prolonged use.
Of course this does not come from the mod, its conductivity is satisfactory, if not that of the choice that the moderator preferred for its length. This will still have an influence on the type of ato you can climb and especially its resistance value. The mod itself is effective, I noted a difference in voltage when setting up a dripper 0,4 ohm, which is obviously not properly adapted to the capabilities of the battery and the general conductivity from the whole.
You will have to forget the ULR, or even the values just below the ohm.
This mod suits its creator brother atomizer: the Doggy Style, a simple coil for 1,2 to 1,5 ohm. This is the optimal setup if you want to vape between 2 and 4 hours in the day, quiet without chain-vape and 10 whiffs of course.
The limit I found him, in terms of efficiency is 0,8 ohm with the mini Goblin on which it fits perfectly (visually speaking), I held 2 hours, and the remaining battery 3,7 volts did not give no more fishing to continue pleasantly.
So these are the limits of this little mechanical wonder: embedded energy.

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
Even if the box is not used much once in your possession, this part of the set is the most common, the least in phase with the great achievement it contains.
It does, however, what it is designed to do: protect the mod from Taiwan so far, and it is doing so visibly well.
The package comes with a softer spring and spare seals.
The manual in French / English gives the minimum explanations required for the operation of the mod and nothing on the maintenance part, which is not difficult to achieve. The warning on the quality of the batteries is at the top of the indications provided, it is a very good point for the unsophisticated who want to start with a mecha. At the end of the manual, it is also recommended not to go down the mounts below an ohm, it is also a welcome precaution.
Appreciations in use

Vapelier's note in terms of usability: 5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
This is typically the mod takeaway for a few hours out, where you do not pretend to practice cloud chasing, but rather operate in a reserved way. It is ideal during a break at work for example.
Its autonomy (unless you have 3 spare batteries) is not intended for extended journeys, or any nomadic activity excluding a recharging station batteries.
Its size makes it an object that can be distinguished only stealthily, it is almost a pity because it is very beautiful, well finished and exists in two versions: brass / polished steel (the test specimen) and brass / brushed steel .
An exceptional mod for selected moments and a measured vape.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
A bet against the current of the meteoric evolution of the mods in our ecosystem, bet nevertheless gained by many aspects:
You will keep this tool in good working order longer than the best box or the best electro mod.
Its modest size destines it to any person wishing to vape in all discretion.
His interview is childishly simple.
It is finally a beautiful object, well designed, adapted to a quiet vape rather dedicated to the tasting of elaborate liquids.
It only remains to be hoped by the battery manufacturers, that they reward us with 18350 more powerful in the near future.
The mechs are timeless, they are always among the mods of each steam, they are the only ones that can ensure in all cases. A real vapor carries him with him in his prolonged displacements because he knows that he can always count on it if necessary.
The challenge of Animodz is to extend the adventure of the dean of mods, it is with intelligence and class that it has arrived with this DogFather signed laser.
See you soon.
