    Wismec Reuleaux 3.0

    As a huge fan of the earlier models, I am extremely disappointed with this version.

    I purchased three of these from different outlets, even different countries. Here are my findings:


    Two of the three units are defective.
    The firing button on one is totally screwed, despite being brand new and undamaged.
    The other has an intermittent issue where it will power down after firing.
    The Battery compartment design is not good. I've had batteries fall out numerous times. Even vibrations from a motor vehicle will open the compartment door.
    The Lugs that hold Battery compartment door closed are prone to wear. The metal has degraded with only 2 months usage. It's just a terrible design.

    Another minor niggle I have with this device is that the puff counter only reads to 10,000, then resets.

    Conclusion:

    Only one of the three models I bought actually works properly. Pretty bad odds if you ask me. It hurts me to say this, but I would not recommend this product. My advice is to get a reuleaux 2.0, they are better in almost every way. I own five of them and they work perfectly, even after years of use!

    Shame really, they used to be good and everyone that had one raved about it. Automatic resetting puff counters are just not on, they should at least go to one million (1000,000) and then ask you first...!!!

    Yep - there was one that sat here on the classies for a while already priced a bit below with batteries included - I watched him add some juice - then drop the price again - it still sat unclaimed for a bit after that

    Their reputation is really not good

    I must have got super lucky when I won one from HG then. Because I haven't had any problems with mine and it hits like a champ. Although I have to agree somewhat regarding the battery door. I never was happy with that design from the beginning.

    Does anyone know if that limited edition DNA200 bronze one was a 2 or 3?

    Wouldn't you be pissed off if you worked out the clams for that, and it turned out to be a turd?

    A nice looking unit. If it squonked, I may have been interested. Maybe if one comes up cheap, I might do the Laurie treatment.

    I miss my OG RX200. I never got the DNA200 version.. but it looked nice. They did do a DNA250 version of it too.
