I would like to make a little recap here of all coating materials that Aspire has used for its box mods untill now.
What is your preferred one ?
ESP 30W : a carbon style, still used with the CF batteries; hard plastic with a carbon pattern skin I think.
Only in black (but blue, red and grey existed for the CF).
It had a nice touch anyway.
Pegasus : the large model, nice heavy metallic brushed box. Slate, Brass and Chrome versions.
Still one of my nicest looking Aspire mods.
Pegasus mini : much lighter little box, in aluminium I suppose. Gold (!), Silver or Black finishes.
Plato : Here also an Aluminium cover but in brushed finish (except the white one) and in 7 different colours.
The eighth colour, "Weathered gold" has never come out and been withdrawn.
Two colour models (white and grey) have a black border and inside, the others have it in white.
I liked that brushed aluminium feeling.
NX75 : This recent box is made in 3 different finishes :
Zinc alloy (white, red, black and Stainless steel). Rather heavy box, nicely painted coating (SS version ?).
Aluminium alloy : available in 5 different colours. Beautiful soft aluminium coating that gives a beautiful finish.
Stainless steel version : the only one in it's category : heavy weight ! Feels very strong ! Tremendous finish here !
All model have rather sharp edges that can be softened using a silicon cover.
Archon : also Aluminium, like its half brother Plato, but with a silky finish here that I prefer to the brushed Plato one.
Available in 3 colours (grey, blue and black) with a yellow-orange border and inside.
NX30 : the only one I don't own, so I think it's Aluminium, but not sure.
Comes in 4 colours.
NX100 : the last model at the moment. Comes in 3 colours : red, black and white.
Has the same touch than the NX75 Zinc version but it is lighter, so painted aluminium perhaps ?
What would be super looking here would be a limited (first one for me though !) Stainless Steel CNC Edition ! ! !
(or a metallic one like for the Pegasus). And of course a silicon sleeve for protection.
Did I forget something ?
In all cases, I think that Aspire has the sensibility of making beautiful looking and nicely feeling box mods with lots of variations in metals and colours.
Please keep that path Aspire !
Thanks for reading and please give me your thoughts about this.
(and sorry for my bad English ...).
