Good day, eh! Welcome to a Canadian review of a Canadian-designed device, Le Pitt 20700 by THC Mods (The Hound Collection).
This is a first for me on VapeCan—it’s both a Canadian designed and manufactured mod. Le Pitt 20700 is a vacuum-casted polyurethane mechanical squonk mod, and so far it has really impressed me, even to the point where I ordered a second one so I could have both for pictures in this review (let’s be honest: I really wanted a second one anyway).
The mod, originating from Quebec by Pamo Waff at THC Mods, comes with a whole slew of goodies. In addition to the mod, you get two squonk bottles (one clear, one black) both with ultem caps, and a DESCE pouch to protect the mod while carrying it. However, the mod itself doesn’t need much protection, as the polyurethane exterior is incredibly durable. Pamo Waff even has a video up showcasing the mod being run over by an SUV, and apart from some superficial scratches, Le Pitt holds up.
Now, the most interesting aspect of THC Mods is that their products are so customizable. When you order your mod, you get to choose the contact material (standard copper, or upgraded silver), button color, and battery door, so your device ends up being completely unique to you. Each battery door design is limited to a run of five. That means the market won’t be saturated by copycat mods, and everyone who purchases will have a special piece of art only shared by four other people. Of course, you can opt to order extra battery doors and buttons as well, so you can make your device feel completely different with the swapping them out. The interchangeability of the device had me hooked, and I absolutely love that part of the design. Unlike most interchangeable door mods, the Le Pitt 20700 doors are not held in place by magnets, but purely by friction against the polyurethane body. And surprisingly, the doors hold in place exceptionally well.
Le Pitt can handle relatively large atomizers quite well. I’ve used up to 25mm with absolutely no overhang. However, 26mm–27mm would be pushing it, and any larger than that would have obvious overhang. But this isn’t an issue for me, since larger atomizers would likely require more power than a single 20700 battery mechanical can put out. Overly large atomizers are best left to dual(or more) battery mods, in my opinion.
The feel of Le Pitt in my hands is fantastic. But keep in mind that because it has a thick polyurethane body with a 20700 battery and lots of room inside, it’s a pretty large mod. It’s certainly bigger than the devices coming out of Italy, or the 3D-printed boxes on the market from Canada, US, and the UK. In addition, the polyurethane material increases the mod’s weight, so it’s a lot heavier than any 3D-printed box of similar design. I actually like the weight and size, personally. However, I know that some people would definitely not appreciate it.
The pricing of the device is extremely reasonable for a high-end Canadian device. You’d be looking at $225CAD for the copper contacts, and $260CAD for the silver. Remember, though: this is in a market where 3D-printed box mods are the same price, but in USD instead. That equates to a 30% decrease in price for a much more durable, locally-made device. It’s a complete winner for me.
My biggest problem with this mod is how to go about getting the devices in the first place. THC Mods doesn’t have their own website. Instead, you have to join the private Facebook group and message Pamo Waff to order one. But again, this is not a mass-produced, mass-market device, so it makes sense that there would be a barrier to entry for them. But it’s totally worth joining and either waiting for a quickstrike deal, or messaging Pamo Waff directly if you’re interested in purchasing one.
Overall, I’ve been absolutely loving both of my devices by THC Mods. Pamo nailed them out of the park, and the graphic design on the doors is brilliant. Custom, Canadian and capable.
NOW TAKE OFF, EH!
