Reviewer comments on business characteristics
Like these predecessors before him, The 134 Itaste MX-Z is an exceptional mod unlike any other. He remains faithful to the specific look of the "134" collection.
The theme of this mod is based on the twelve astrological signs. A sidereal astrologypracticed mostly outside the West.
This symbolism has been frequently and widely used since the Greco-Roman era until today:
♈ ram, ♉ bull, ♊ gemini, ♋ cancer, ♌ lion, ♍ virgin, ♎ balance, ♏ scorpion, ♐ sagittarius, ♑ capricorn, ♒ aquarius, ♓ fish

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
Innokin did it hard. I found the quality of this mod particularly neat, until the logo of the manufacturer who is screwed into the Switch which is a curved shape perfectly matching that of the finger.
Insulators of quality and well nested, no play between each piece that visibly have been machined accurately. The threads are very qualitative, it's a pleasure!
Some parts of the top cap have been cleverly weighted to allow them to slide into each other to obtain a pleasant and intuitive movement with each change of zodiacal sign, by well placed balls, intended for the rotation of the ring which just land on it.
A ring that is also very beautifully engraved and invisible when the mod is on (this is almost a pity) to give us a benchmark when mounting the set and the choice of your zodiac sign, all constituting the top cap .
A superbly engraved cape by geometric streaks so as to adapt any atomizer by allowing the air to circulate.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
I appreciated that the Switch is integrated in the mod so as to have perfect stability in vertical position. In addition, the curved shape of the button is really convenient to use.
However, the diameter and weight of this non-standard mod could be disabling for small hands.
After adjusting the pin with the screw located in the connection, the conductivity is stable and regular. Nothing to say, a good operation!

The mood ticket of the reviewer
The Itaste 134 MX-Z is a great success and puts you in the eye! In view of its presentation, its finishes, its overall quality, it is in a range of prices quite respectable. Hat!
This mod exists in two colors, black or steel.
We are on a product out of the ordinary with measurements also uncommon. It takes some time to adapt to tame this product. For my part, go understand, it was love at first sight ...
Little brother of a series of the same ilk, I wait to discover the next. Thank you Innokin for presenting products so aesthetically different!
