Meet the Duke SX Stabwood Edition box mod by Vicious Ant, AKA the world’s MOST EXPENSIVE box-mod!
What’s the world’s most expensive box-mod?
I don’t really know if I’m 100% honest.
But the Duke SX Stabwood Edition box mod by Vicious Ant cannot be far off it — this beast costs £799.99.
There are only a handful of these mods being made, so it’s limited edition, and that means, if it is taken care of, it could appreciate in value — rare things often do. It looks pretty freaking stunning as well.
I mean, just LOOK at it.
The Duke SX Stabwood Edition is powered by a bespoke SX350J V2 Mini Processor Programmed By Vicious Ant and its outer shell is made from stabilized hybrid wood that’s been imported from America — and, no, we have no idea what that is either.
Fortunately, we have Google at our disposal, so here’s a little explainer via North Woods Figured Woods:
“The stabilizing process uses a vacuum to remove all the air from the wood, replacing it with a heat activated resin that in turn forms a polymer backbone in pieces that would otherwise be too fragile to use. Additionally, resin of different colors and shades can be used to create various effects. When colored resin penetrates wood, it results in unique coloring of the wood, artistically highlighting splendid natural grain figures.”
Available in a selection of colors, or, finishes, the Duke SX Stabwood Edition box mod is certainly one of the most eye-catching mods we’ve ever seen.
I’d like to say that I have tried it, but, alas, I am not a millionaire so I have yet to have the pleasure, unfortunately.
Still, it’s specs and features sound pretty decent:

If there is such a thing in the vapesphere…
As the name suggests, the Duke SX Stabwood Edition is based on the Duke SX, an already well know vape mod.
This means you get A LOT of performance, a great set of features, support for things like TC and every mod of vaping you can think of, as well as a bunch of safety features.
But the reason this is such an expensive mod is because of the detail that has gone into constructing and creating its outer chassis.
The internals are no different, really, than a mod you might pay $100 for.
Does Price REALLY Matter When It Comes To Vape Mods?
Sorry, but it does – just as it does with most things in life. But please do not be put off by this because you don’t need to spend a fortune to pick yourself up an amazing vape mod these days.
You can, and should, pay no more than $60-$80 for a solid vape mod.
If it comes with a vape tank, then you might pay more. But keep in mind that vape tanks normally retail for $30 by themselves.
