    Lol..jokes!

    Here’s my more in depth review and my first review like this ever! The last time I did a review like this was on a book in Matric which I fell asleep reading so don’t expect too much!

    Out-depth review:

    Price: 170CHF (Swiss francs) ~R2100

    Fedex: 60CHF (on special request) otherwise it ships through Swiss post!

    How to get this mod: Quickstrikes happen every 2-3 weeks and in limited quantities on the L’atelier box Facebook group. This is not made by the owner of Molly but by his engineer/friend/elf/slave so it won’t be on sale in High-Creek, well at least not for now that we do know of.

    The look and feel of this box is rounded and has an exposed tube much like the stabwood mods, which makes it feel great in the hand but for people with big hands I suppose they won’t enjoy it as it would be too small. The mod is made on point for one 18650 battery which goes in the tube and because it is a mech there is no wrong way for the battery, also there is no battery rattle at all on this mod. The contacts are copper but it does give a hard punch and I have just seen someone change theirs to silver contacts so it is upgradable to a knockout punch. It comes with an ingenious design of a 510 square cap where the positive nut goes on; and this cap acts to both hold the bottle (it means you have to unscrew the bottle from the cap as it is a bit difficult to pull the bottle and bottle cap out of the square cap and then try to put it back in again) and to act as a lock as well. Please see pic below that illustrates this.

    The white Holy comes with a black button, and the black one with an ultem one but the button is very soft on the touch so don’t press too hard or you may break it! The different colour combinations known so far to the group are as below:
    Holy black chrome.jpg Holy black.jpg Holy white black.jpg Holy white chrome.jpg
    I have been using the Holy the whole afternoon until this evening and I have to say it is amazing! If you have used a Molly V2, the performance is exactly the same unless you have upgraded yours to silver contacts and silver plated 510, then that is another story!

    Pics of the Holy's parts:
    20180225_224858.jpg 20180225_224910.jpg 20180225_224919.jpg

    Pros:

    • Small

    • Nice feel to the hand

    • Aesthetically pleasing

    • Ambidextrous squonking

    • Firing button not too tight so it won’t get stuck.
    Cons:

    • Hand too big, squish Holy and it become unholy

    • Copper contacts and not silver

    • Fire button feels a bit too loose.

    Lol..it's actually a good thing though as normally mods come with silver plated copper and not .999 pure silver where you would notice the big difference!

    Personal preference would be silver contacts. Much easier to keep clean lol

    Does anyone perhaps have a source for silver contacts for these locally that I could purchase? Apologies to revive an old thread :)

    If you can't find some locally; why don't you try going to a jeweler and asking them to make it for you? You can leave the original parts with them for a sample

    Was fishing before going down that road :p I also see they have some coming from the mod maker themselves so might just hold out depending on the ETA. Thanks man last resort is that jeweler option.

    The silver contacts from L'atelier are just silver plated copper. Jeweler would be your best bet as that is what I have done. Get silver plated contacts and silvered out 510 kit from vapemonarch.co.za, they stock modmaker parts and then take the contacts as well as the original parts to a jeweler to cut.
