Suorin Fero Pod Kit Review | 25W, Great Performance, Fast Charge!

Richard WinterPod Vapes Leave a Comment


It’s been a while since we last reviewed a Suorin product so we’re only too pleased to get our hands on the Suorin Fero, the latest release to come from Suorin. One of the things that always takes us pleasantly by surprise is that, despite being a relatively new company, they always came out with innovative and sometimes quite quirky designs.

Green Plum Suorin Fero Held In Hand

The Suorin Fero breaks this trend slightly as once I looked inside the box I was confronted with the more traditional looking pod device in the form of a tall slim flattened tube shape. What doesn’t change though is the functionality and performance from their devices, both of which are really very good.

As always we will give a quick overview covering the main points and features of the Suorin Fero and then jump into the main body of the review covering everything there is to know.

Overview of the Suorin Fero

Suorin Fero with both Fero Pods that come in the kit

The Suorin Fero is a 25W max output variable wattage pod device that auto detects the pod resistance, and sets the optimum wattage with a maximum selectable limit for the resistance of pod that’s fitted. Two different resistance pods are supplied with the kit; a 0.6 ohm and 0.8 ohm. These pods are refillable (side fill) with a 2ml/3ml e-liquid capacity but have fixed integrated coils so are NOT replaceable.

Suorin Fero charging port on side of the body

A 1000mAh built in capacity battery powers the device and charges using the supplied cable via the side located USB-C port specified as 5V/2A. Full charge takes a mere 40 minutes (28 minutes actual when timed) with the additional benefit of pass-through so you can vape while it’s being charged.

It’s a dual activated device, auto-draw and fire button controlled with variable airflow that provides a Mouth-To-Lung (MTL) and Restricted-Direct-to-Lung (RDL) draw.

OLED display screen and LED light ring on the Sourin Fero

The user interface is a 0.42 inch OLED display screen that shows the remaining battery charge, numerical wattage value, pod resistance, puff counter and lock/unlock. In addition to this is a multi-colored LED light ring surrounding the OLED display provides 5 different LED lighting effects.

6 different colors of the Suorin Fero

Made out of Aluminium Alloy, it’s lightweight, robust and comes in 6 striking color schemes so there’s something for everyone.

I would like to thank Chilly at Suorin for sending us the Suorin Fero pod kits. As always this review is completely unbiased and is my honest opinion of my findings while using and reviewing the supplied kit.

The packaging has a slide out draw type box with an outer sleeve that’s white in color. Once the outer sleeve is removed, the Suorin Fero device with the 0.6 ohm pod installed sits within a cardboard insert lined with plastic. Beneath the cardboard insert are the spare 0.8 ohm pod, Type-C charging cable, lanyard and manual. The overall dimensions of the packaging box measure 140mm x 61mm x 37mm.

Front of the Suorin Fero packaging

On the front of the box is a photo sticker of the Suorin Fero. The image appears to be in the same color irrespective of the included device color as we received two different colors but the boxes had the same colored image on it. “Suorin Fero” is written above the photo sticker and the lower section on the front sleeve has the nicotine warning message.

Back of the Suorin Fero packaging

The reverse side of the box details the “Contents”, “Manufacturer’s Details”, “CE/Kitemark” logo’s, the relevant safety warnings and a sticker stating the color of the included device.

The Suorin Fero also has a clear film that protects the wrap around smoked black OLED display and airflow lever mid-section. Remove this as well as it does become untidy during use.

Unplug the e-liquid fill port stopper to reveal the filling hole
Filling the Suorin Fero pod

Unplug the black silicone rubber e-liquid bung on the side edge of the Suorin Fero pod, fill with e-liquid, refit the rubber bung and wait for 10-15 minutes so the e-liquid fully saturates the wick in the coil.

Green Plum Suorin Fero pod

Refit the Fero pod and turn the Suorin Fero on by 5 quick clicks of the side mounted fire/control button. I would suggest altering the wattage (3 quick presses) to its lowest value and taking a few draws to pull e-liquid through the pod to slowly bed the new pod/coil in. Increase the wattage in 1W increments, each time taking a few draws until you reach the wattage that gives you your ideal draw.

For reference, we’ve written a detailed description on all of the menus and how to select and adjust them in the Functionality section of this review.

Suorin Fero Pod Kit Design and Appearance


Suorin Fero Device (battery/body)

Left side front view of the Suorin Fero body
Left side back view of the Suorin Fero body

The Suorin Fero is constructed out of aluminium alloy giving it a lightweight but robust quality feel and it measures 88.5mm tall (excluding the pod), 25.5mm wide by 14.4mm deep and weighs in at 39.2 grams. When the pod is attached, the overall height is 113.7mm and the combined weight is 47.5 grams.

Blue Margarita and Green Plum Suorin Fero's
Edge view of the Suorin Fero

It’s a tall slim sized MTL and RDL style dual activated device and is capable of providing up to 25W of power. The wattage is adjustable in 1W steps and also detects the resistance of the coil fitted in the attached pod being used and selects the optimum wattage (pod specific). In addition to this, it will limit the maximum allowable wattage that can be set for each coil/pod to prevent excessive power being applied to the coil.

USB-C charging port on the Suorin Fero

Powered by a 1000mAh capacity internal rechargeable battery, it’s recharged via the Type-C USB charging port on the side edge of the Suorin Fero specified as 5V/2A. The charging time is pretty quick and will fully charge the Suorin Fero in approximately 30 minutes with the added benefit that a pass-through function allows you to vape while it’s being charged.

We’ve covered the LEDs and OLED charging display and times in more detail in the How do I Charge the Suorin Fero section of this review.

Left side view of the Suorin Fero
Right side view of the Suorin Fero

The Suorin Fero has a smooth patterned surface color finish with a ¾ width wrap-around smoked black mid-section. This houses the 0.42 inch OLED display with a multi-colored LED light ring around its outer perimeter on the front flat face. On the reverse side is a variable airflow control slider lever and on the side edge is a small 8mm oblong fire/control button with two countersunk screws that hold the mid-section in place.

0.42 inch OLED display on the Suorin Fero

This 0.42 inch OLED display screen highlights the remaining battery charge status, a large wattage value, the pod resistance, a puff counter and lock/unlock padlock icon. The multi-color LED light ring around the OLED display provides 5 different selectable lighting effects but also highlights different safety prompts.

We’ve covered the LEDs and OLED screen functions in more detail in the Functionality section of this review.

The variable airflow control lever, which is on the opposite side edge to the fire/control button, will adjust between closed in the up position to open in the down position where you can select 1, 2 or 3 holes to tailor your draw. The resistance of the lever is pretty tight so it shouldn’t move on its own.

There are no + and – control buttons, instead the rectangular fire button is used to turn the Suorin Fero on/off, access the different menu/screen settings and alter the variable wattage levels.

Pod recess on the Suorin  Fero

At the top of the Suorin Fero is the 13mm deep recessed oval opening for the pod to be located which can be fitted either way around.

Close up of the coil contact pins, airflow sensor channel and magnets on the Suorin Fero

Within the pod recess are two gold plated spring loaded coil contact pins and two rectangular bar magnets that line up with the pod. There is also an airflow intake chamber that leads through to the airflow slider lever.

Battery vent holes on the bottom of the Suorin Fero

The bottom of the Suorin Fero is flat but it’s not a very big surface area so although it does stand upright it’s not very stable. Good to see there are 3 small pin holes on the base to act as battery venting holes in case of emergencies.

Suorin and Logo branding on the Suorin Fero
Sourin Fero branding on the front of the battery casing

Suorin’s branding is very discrete with the brand name “Suorin” and its logo screen printed in small lettering on the airflow slider side and “Suorin Fero” on the OLED display side.

A further function of the Suorin Fero facilitates switch LED lighting where you can alternate between 5 different patterns on the LED light ring as follows:

The Suorin Fero also ensures a multitude of safety features are maintained, such as:

  • Overtime protection (6 seconds)
  • Low battery protection (3.2V)
  • Short circuit protection
  • Over temperature protection
  • Overcharge protection
  • Output over-current protection

The two colors we received to test were Green Plum and Blue Margarita which you can see throughout this review.

Suorin Fero Pods

Both the pods included in the Suorin Fero kit

These new Suorin Fero side fill pods use what Suorin call BPC (Boost, Pure, Clean) heating technology to enhance the flavor and increase the purity of your vape experience. They also stipulate zero leakage technology by using an air tight silicone cap, assured high polymer cotton and an airtight silicone seal.

Suorin specify each pod comes with a long lifespan coil allowing you to refill up to 10 times (30ml of e-liquid). As a spoiler I’ve cycled just over 60ml of e-liquid through the 0.6 ohm pod and it’s still going well.

0.6 and 0.8 ohm Suorin Fero pods

Two Suorin Fero pods; 0.6 ohm and 0.8 ohm are included in the Suorin Fero kit. They have a 2ml (TPD) / 3ml (standard) e-liquid capacity and have side fill ports that have to be removed from the device in order to fill. They come with fixed integrated coils so are not replaceable; once the coil degrades the whole pod is replaced.

Take of the sticker from the base of the pod

When first installing your pod, make sure you remove the white sticker from the base of the pod. The pods come shipped with this protector so they can’t be accidentally fired before e-liquid has been added.

Each of these pods are manufactured out of slightly tinted (smoked) lightweight PCTG material. The tint is pretty clear making it easy to see the level of e-liquid through the pod.

Mouthpiece on the Suorin Fero Pod

The mouthpiece has a duckbill shape with a 9mm oval opening tapering to a 4mm circular cut out to cater for the MTL/RDL vape styles.

Overall dimensions of the Suorin Fero pod are 38.2mm tall by 25.5mm wide and 14.5mm deep and the weight of the pod, minus the e-liquid is 8.2 grams.

Silicone rubber fill port stopper on the Suorin Fero pod

The Suorin Fero pod side fill port is positioned on the side edge of the pod, concealed beneath a flush fitting black silicone rubber stopper. The words “Open” are branded into the rubber with a directional arrow depicting which end of the stopper is lifted to open.

Open branded into the rubber stopper on the Suorin Fero pod

A word of warning though, the rubber flap is quite thin so do take care when opening the stopper as it may break if you’re too heavy handed. As these pods are disposable i.e. have a limited life it’s not really a problem.

Fill port closed on the Suorin Fero pod
Fill port open on the Suorin Fero pod

When the plug is opened, the other end of the silicone rubber flap will remain attached to the pod so it won’t get lost. The e-liquid fill port oval hole is a reasonable size measuring 5mm so it’s big enough to accept short stubby e-liquid tip bottles.

0.6 ohm and 0.8 ohm stamped on the base of the Suorin Fero Pods

On the underside of the pod are 2 small diagonally opposed air intake holes, two circular coil contact plates and two rectangular bar magnets on the base of the pod that locate with the magnets in the pod recess of the Suorin Fero device. The pods have a symmetrical oval base so can be fitted either way around.

Suorin printed on the side of the Suorin Fero Pod
Min line printed on the side of the Suorin Fero Pod

Branding on these pods has “Suorin” and the “CE” markings screen printed on one side of the pod. There is a “Min” e-liquid level line on the other side and the “Coil Resistance” printed on the base of the pod.

Removing the pod from the Suorin Fero
Pod fitted in the Suorin Fero

Inserting the pod is straightforward enough, simply place the pod to the Suorin Fero body recessed pod opening and it will slide into the recess and be locked and held in place by the magnets.

Removing the pod is carried out by grasping the pod mouthpiece and pulling away from the Suorin Fero body. It’s a reasonably secure fit but is quite easy to remove.

When the pod is inserted into the Suorin Fero body, or removed, the OLED display and the LED light ring will illuminate.

Suorin Fero Lanyard

The Suorin Fero kit comes with a lanyard so I thought I’d better mention it.

Lanyard fitted around the Suorin Fero

It’s a nice colorful looking lanyard with a silicone stretchy rubber loop that attaches around the Suorin Fero body. I did use it for a couple of days and didn’t have any issues with it.

I will say that because the Suorin Fero body is so smooth, I felt unsure if it would slip out of the lanyard. It didn’t but I felt safer having the loop just below the fire/control button so it rested around my neck in a horizontal position.

It’s good that Suorin have included one in the kit and yes it does work. Personally I don’t like things hanging around my neck but nevertheless it’s nice to have that option if you desire.

Suorin Fero Functionality


Suorin Fero set to 5W (Min)
Suorin Fero set to 25W (Max)

The Suorin Fero is a variable wattage 5W-25W pod device, adjustable in 1W increments and it incorporates auto detection where it sets the optimum wattage and also limits the maximum selectable wattage for the pod type you’re using.

Optimum wattage set to 16W when the 0.8 ohm pod is fitted in the Suorin Fero
Optimum wattage set to 21W when the 0.6 ohm pod is fitted in the Suorin Fero
Pod ResistanceOptimum WattageSuorin Fero Min/Max Setting
0.6 ohm Pod21W5W – 23W
0.8 ohm Pod16W5W – 16W

This pre-set optimum wattage can be adjusted above or below this value but the upper wattage limit for the pod cannot be exceeded. Once you reach the maximum wattage for the pod, the next press of the fire button takes you to the minimum value (5W).

Airflow Control

The Suorin Fero incorporates adjustable airflow control using a slider lever on the reverse side of the casing within the black ¾ black inlay panel.

Airflow open and closed on the two Suron Fero pod devices

When the airflow control slider is in the downward position the airflow is open with 3 small air intake holes providing a RDL draw. Moving the airflow control slider upwards until it reaches its stop position shuts the airflow off providing a tight restrictive MTL draw. You can position the lever anywhere between min and max to tweak your preferred vaping style.

Suorin Fero Performance


Blue Margarita Suorin Fero with the two included pods in the kit

Two Suorin Fero pods are supplied with the Suorin Fero kit; a 0.6 ohm Kanthal mesh side fill pod and a 0.8 ohm Kanthal mesh side fill pod. They do have integrated coils so are non-replaceable. After approximately 4 weeks use I’m still using the same 2 pods that came with the Suorin Fero kit and both are still performing really well.

As always, when filling the pod for the first time, leave it to stand for 10-15 minutes before you use it to allow the e-liquid to fully saturate the wicking material. I also prefer when using a new pod to set the wattage to its lowest setting and taking a few draws to pull e-liquid through the coil. Gradually increment the wattage, each time taking a few draw until you reach your sweet spot.

Because of the fairly small wicking ports in each of the coils, I would recommend using a 50/50 ratio e-liquid when using these pods.

Suorin Fero 0.6 Ohm Pod (pre-installed)

0.6 ohm Suorin Fero pod

Suorin specify the recommended wattage range for this pod is between 18W – 23W. The auto detection sets the optimum wattage to 21W. The operating wattage of the Suorin Fero when using the 0.6 ohm pod is from 5W to 23W.

After initially bedding in the coil, I set the wattage to its minimum value of 5W. A slow draw was needed but the flavor started to come through with some vapor. Increasing the wattage to 8W improved the speed of the draw with increased flavor and vapor, in fact it was a pretty good vape at this low power level.

Increasing the wattage to 10W gave a satisfying draw with plenty of flavor and dense vapor. A 2 second draw with the airflow wide open resulted in a lovely Direct-To-Lung (DTL) draw. Shutting the airflow off tightened the draw but muted the flavor and vapor a little.

12W intensified the draw and it felt quite powerful with lots of dense vapor and strong flavor. If I’m honest, vaping with this pod suited me best between 10W -12W.

I took the 0.6 ohm pod up to 16W which is the auto detection wattage and yes it gives great results. The flavor shone through and vapor is dense. At the maximum 23W a very short draw is all that’s needed to give a great vape. Saying this though, the vape time between charges will reduce at this power level and I felt this high power wasn’t needed as at 12W everything was still really good.

Airflow fully open worked best for me irrespective of the wattage I was using. It gave a satisfying DTL and RDL draw. Shutting the airflow off still gives a good vape and tightened the draw to an airy MTL draw.

Suorin Fero 0.8 Ohm Pod

0.8 ohm Suorin Fero pod

Suorin specify the recommended wattage range for this pod is between 12W – 16W. The auto detection feature sets the optimum wattage to 16W. The operating wattage of the Suorin Fero when using the 0.8 ohm pod is from 5W to 16W.

With the wattage set to its minimum value of 5W I needed a long slow draw to pick out the flavor but the vapor was pretty good. Once I got to 8W the flavor increased along with the vapor with only a 2 second draw needed to get a good vape.

At 10W I would say this was my perfect power level. Plenty of flavor and vapor and with the airflow open it gave a good RDL draw. Shutting the airflow did produce a nice restricted MTL draw.

Setting the Suorin Fero to the auto power level of 16W, which strangely enough is also the maximum wattage you can go to, did produce dense vapor with plenty of flavor. As with the 0.6 ohm pod, I didn’t think the extra power was needed with this pod either.

Any Leaks?

Throughout my time using both the pods supplied with the Suorin Fero kit there were no e-liquid leaks or seepage and not one sign of any condensation. However, despite this I always recommend if you’re not using the device, or any other device for that matter, for a day or two and the pod is still connected, e-liquid seepage WILL eventually occur.

This is not a criticism of the Suorin Fero pods in any way, it’s just my experience when using any pod device.

Airflow

Airflow lever up closes the airflow and airflow lever down opens the airflow

The airflow slider adjustment worked effortlessly and has a good restrictive feel to the slider. Closing the airflow off (uppermost) produced a nice restrictive MTL vape while opening it up (downwards) provided a great DTL/RDL draw. There isn’t a great deal of movement on the slider (approx. 5mm) but plenty enough to provide your ideal draw.

Auto-Draw

Auto-draw worked but I did find when vaping with the airflow open at a lower power level it didn’t always activate. This was replicated a couple of times with the wattage set to its optimum power level.

The number of times this happened reduced when I restricted the airflow to either half open or closed but it did still happen every now and again.

Performance Summary

Suorin Fero Green Plum in Performance section of the review

Both the 0.6 ohm and 0.8 ohm pods were very impressive. Flavor and vapor, including the throat hit from them was really good. The longevity of the pods is at present unknown because of the short time we’ve been using them (4 weeks).

What’s also unknown is how long the pods will last when vaping either pod at its optimum power level. Suorin specify 10 fills before the pod/coil degrades which is approx. 30ml of e-liquid. I’ve surpassed this figure on both pods.

The draw was smooth and pretty quiet with no gurgling. The throat hit from 3-6mg freebase nicotine was very good and the airflow control on the Suorin Fero is very effective.

Suorin Fero Battery Performance


The Suorin Fero is powered by a rechargeable 1000mAh internal battery which is a good decent capacity for a pod mod of this size. Charging time takes approximately 30 minutes to fully charge via the on board Type-C USB port with the supplied cable when using a power source of 2A.

On average I was achieving around 1 day’s vaping with a recorded puff count between 382 – 437 from a single charge while using the 0.6 ohm pod at a wattage level of 12W. When using the 0.8 ohm pod set to 10W the puff count and vape times were similar.

Vaping times will vary depending on the resistance of pod you’re using, the wattage that you’ve set and your vaping style i.e. duration and frequency of your draw.

The Suorin Fero indicates the status of the remaining battery charge via the battery icon on the 0.42 inch OLED display. A white bar indicates full charge and this will slowly reduce as you vape until it becomes completely black.

When the battery reaches its low voltage cut-off point, the LED light ring will flash red twice, the battery icon will go black and the OLED display shows “Low Battery”. At this point you will no longer be able to vape and will have to charge your Suorin Fero.

We’ve covered the charging process and what to expect in How do I Charge the Suorin Fero section. The Suorin Fero has pass-through so you are able to vape while it’s being charged.

The intensity of the draw remains the same throughout the discharge cycle of the battery. It doesn’t diminish as the battery drains and remained the same up to the point when the battery cut out.

How do I Fill the Suorin Fero Pod?


Suorin Fero pod filled with e-liquid

These Suorin Fero pods are a side fill design and have to be removed from the Suorin Fero body in order to fill with e-liquid. There is a “Min” e-liquid level mark on the pod but it’s not visible unless you remove the pod. When the pod if fitted, as long as you can see you’re e-liquid in the bottom of the pod it’s ok. Never let the level fall too low otherwise you will destroy the pod and will have to replace it.

The fill port is located on one side edge of the pod casing and is concealed behind a black silicon rubber flap. A small arrow just before the word “Open” is indented on the rubber flap highlighting which end of the rubber stopper lifts away to gain access to the fill port.

This silicone rubber flap is attached to the pod so there’s no chance of it getting lost. Because the fill port opening is pretty wide (5mm), it’ll accept those larger e-liquid/shortfill bottle tips.

Filling the Suorin Fero Pod

Pull open the flap and insert your e-liquid bottle tip into the opening. Tilt the pod on its side to aid filling and to get the maximum amount of e-liquid into the pod. Once filled, reinsert the silicon rubber flap making sure the fill port is securely reseated.

When you refit the pod into the Suorin Fero pod recess, the OLED display and LED light ring will illuminate for 5 seconds and then extinguish.

Quick Tip: If you are filling the pod for the first time, once filled, leave to stand for approx. 10-15 minutes before you start to vape. This will help saturate the wick fully in e-liquid and help prolong the life of the coil/pod.

When and How do I Change the Suorin Fero Pod?


Because both of the included Suorin Fero pods have fixed non replaceable coils, when the coil starts to degrade after a few weeks of use, the pod will need to be discarded and a new pod fitted. Suorin state these new pods have a lifespan of 30ml of e-liquid passing through them. In my time using the Suorin Fero I found I was exceeding this limit by quite a margin.

By the time I finished writing this review, I’d cycled just over 60ml of e-liquid through the 0.6 ohm pod and 40ml through the 0.8 ohm pod and both pods were still producing great results.

Do note, bedding in your new pod, not letting the e-liquid level fall too low and not vaping constantly at the maximum wattage will help increase the life of the pod. Equally, certain flavored e-liquids or high VG e-liquid will reduce the life of the pod.

An indication of the coil degrading will show by either a loss of flavor and/or a lack of vapor. Continuing beyond this loss of flavor/vapor will finally result in a nasty burnt taste. Equally the coil could fail going open or short circuit. Either way, when this happens discard the pod and fit a new one.

Pulling the pod away from the Suorin Fero

Pull the pod away from the Suorin Fero battery/body. Unfortunately if you still have e-liquid in the pod, this will have to be discarded as well as it will have been tainted by the burnt out coil.

When fitting a new pod, follow the procedure for How do I Fill the Pod. As you insert the pod into the Suorin Fero body, the OLED display and LED light ring will briefly illuminate to identify the pod has made electrical contact with the device and is ready to use.

How do I Charge the Suorin Fero?


Charging cable plugged into the USB-C port on the Suorin Fero

Because the Suorin Fero has an internal battery, charging is carried out using the USB to Type-C charging cable (supplied in the kit). Simply connect the cable into the Type-C port on the side edge of the Suorin Fero body and the other end into a suitable USB power source. The specified charging circuit of the Suorin Fero is 5V/2.0A and it will fully charge the device in approximately 30 minutes.

While you’re using the Suorin Fero, once the battery runs out of charge and reaches its low voltage cut-off (3.2V), the OLED display will bring up the “low Voltage” prompt. At this point you will have to place the Suorin Fero on charge.

Charging display on the Suorin Fero

When the Suorin Fero is placed on charge, the OLED display screen and LED light ring illuminates. After a few seconds, the OLED display switches to a charging screen showing a scrolling 6 bar battery icon with a real time numerical percentage value of the charge above the battery icon.

The OLED display and LED light ring remain illuminated throughout the entire charging cycle (love it!). Full charge is reached when the scrolling battery icon remains static, the display indicates 100% and the LED light ring turns static green. The OLED and LED light ring will remain illuminated until the charging cable is removed.

Even though Suorin specify the charging time is approximately 40 minutes, the actual recorded time I monitored while charging the device was 28 minutes.

The Suorin Fero has pass-through so you can vape while it’s being charged but this will increase the charge time.

I did observe while the Suorin Fero was on charge the case does get quite warm to the touch. While this is normal with a 2A charging circuit, I strongly advise to always charge this, and any other device for that matter, on a non-flammable surface.

As with any vape device, NEVER leave it unattended whilst charging and don’t charge it overnight.

Suorin Fero Pod Kit Summary


Side by side view of the two Suorin Fero devices we received for review

The Suorin Fero pod kit ticks the boxes in terms of functionality and performance. It’s not complicated to use and made simpler by the auto pod detect function that selects the optimum wattage with a maximum wattage limit that can be applied to the coil/pod.

Variable wattage from 5W – 25W, adjustable airflow, fast 30 minute charge, good battery life from the 1000mAh battery, OLED display and multi-colored LED light ring with selectable lighting effects is a pretty impressive spec.

Suorin Fero being used

Performance from the Suorin Fero pods continues to deliver with good flavor and dense vapor. Dual activation gives the user the choice of operation of auto-draw or fire button control. The charging display being visible throughout the charge cycle is also a great bonus for me.

There’s always a negative otherwise a device would be perfect and finding those is very hard to come by. The draw activation didn’t fire every time but it didn’t cause a problem as the fire button control was the perfect back-up.
