The much hyped, impossible to get, super over valued market priced, M-Atty by Meb Mods. It’s been cloned. This might be the ultimate example for when it’s okay to try out a clone, even if you have the $800+ to buy one, good luck finding one. So let’s find out if it’s all its hyped out to be…
YES. YES. YES. This is one of the first hyped attys we have tried that is worth every ounce of hype it gets. If we had the extra cash and access to one, we would be extremely tempted to fork over the cash. The design is a masterpiece of thinking and execution. It’s a very efficient design, with the perfect balance of open space and airflow with a killer clamp style post system that makes building a breeze. It’s much more compact than it photographs, it really is a tiny giant.
Flavour is incredible, it’s so good that the AFC really doesn’t effect the flavour, fully open or closed down, all the AFC does is effect the draw (sure there is a slight flavour improvement, but it’s minuscule). The quality of flavour is really quite unbelievable, and so accurate that you can taste the moment your wicks begin to beg for more liquid.
Airflow is so dialled in, the perfect amount of resistance with enough flow to allow for impressive vapor production. It’s a nice dense vapor that can be dialled in for warmth or cool vapes. The AFC isn’t overly quiet but there isn’t an ounce of whistle. There is one slight flaw in the design, because of the great vapor production and condensed size, over time the AFC will squeeze out a couple drops of liquid when replacing the drip tip after a refill at its seam. Cleaning it occasionally between reworks solves it pretty good, if only there was an o-ring below the AFC holes too.
Building on the M-atty is a real pleasure. The clamps work just as well as they look, clamping down on the wire easily and creating very good conductivity. Your build is so secure they last forever, there is very little movement in your coils, even when rewicking.
Wicking is pretty easy, there is lots of room and using larger coils only helps accommodate larger wicks that helps condensed the chamber even further (leading to awesome flavour). Our favourite build is a 5 Wrap, Spaced, 25awg, 3mm, Dual Coil coming in at 0.25-0.3 and run at 45-55W. It’s a perfectly warm, super flavourful vape. The 5 Wrap perfectly fills the AFC slots.
Juice capacity is surprising for it’s size, easily taking 20+ drops and lasting a decent number of pulls. The design of the drip tip/top cap makes dripping a super easy undertaking and it also gives a beautiful view of your build. One thing you must get to compliment this procedure is the JMK M-Atty Integral Drip Tip they fit beautifully and intensify the flavour while keeping things cool to your lips (the metal Drip Tip is almost unusable the way we like to vape).
The M-atty is an atty that every vaper needs to experience. Even if you are turned off by all the hype, the clone finally makes this unicorn accessible to all. It’s as good as all the hype, maybe even more. To be honest we never heard about how great it vaped, it was always about it’s scarcity, crazy cost, and the hand check status. Now that we know, it will never leave our rotation, and really it may be the new bench mark for all RDAs moving forward. Go grab yourself one right now.
The Clone is great quality but they did miss the O-ring tolerances by just a tad, it’s fully functioning as is, but find some better O-rings and it’s rock solid (easy enough to find).
