Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have news about some upcoming Bo’sun atty developments. This week I hope to be adding ABS (delrin) top afc caps that will serve as the upper airflow control ring and present the greatest available airflow with the atomizer assembled with the deck head in place. This piece has been puzzling me for sometime as we’ve been unable to find a way to properly mill the piece we need at a price that was remotely feasible. My buddy Ed at put his head to it and after plenty of trial has made a strong, attractive, functional cap out of medical grade delrin.

Another shipment of Bo’sun RDAs is pending delivery and QC. This next run will include polished SS caps, Black caps, and in a last minute decision, I’ve determined to media blast a handful of caps that will look amazing.

Drafting has begun on a 25mm Bo’sun rda and it will include some changes to accommodate for the larger deck to ensure similar or better performance with the broader span. The 25mm Bo’sun will be capable of doing more of what the 22 does and it’s going to look sexy as hell. I don’t want to give too much away and my doodles look really weird, but I’m confident it will work well.


As an aside, I’d like to state the Bo’sun has always been geared toward flavor chasers. I don’t want to move the Bo’sun away from it’s intended purpose, and the more tweaking I do to its design I feel that’s what I’d be creating if I keep making changes. I want a cloud chuckin’ RDA too though and I think I’ve hit on a design for it that’s so basic it’s going to be extremely difficult to make, but it’s feasible. More on that later.

MidCon VapeCon was a huge success!

12046779_1511710625817616_8925712915695222799_nLadies and Gentlemen,
MidCon VapeCon was a huge success. We were proud to bring out the most substantial vape scene we’ve ever had in this part of the country. We got so much support from the community and we can’t thank our volunteers enough. SWMO Vape Shop along with Sixth Element Studios, Vapergate, Global Vapory, Vaperz Cloud, East Coast Liquids, and Civilized Vapors joined forces to bring this bash to Joplin, Missouri on October 23 & 24th of 2015. We had an amazing show Friday night by Lola Black and a two day cloud comp to push more contenders forward on the road to $100,000+ in the World Series of Cloud Chasing. We’re grateful to everyone who took a chance coming to Joplin to exhibit at this event and to everyone who came out with their enthusiasm to make it so much fun. Saturday featured an excellent panel discussion with some local and national advocacy groups who were on site the whole convention. In the charity auction we managed to raise over $3500 for vaping advocacy thanks to donations from our vendors who were present and Prima Vapor, Eclyp, and The Geek Group.

For some great shots we’re adding as I write, visit

Moving forward.
