    After getting a bonus at work thought I would treat myself to my first high end RDA but have not decided which one yet,I am currently rocking a recurve and a dead rabbit.I prefer sinlge-coil builds since it has lower eliquid consumption down the road but I am not completely against dual coil.Asking around at a vape shop most of the employees recommended either the CSMNT or the original goon (and one guy said the apocalypse gen 2).What do you think? Ofcourse I am open to other suggestions as well :) also if you opt to recommend a dual-coil atty please also leave a mod recommendation ( since I do not own a dual battery)
    Thanks in advance!

    Get you a MCM Mose' One RDA. This is going to be my next single coil RDA.

    Buddy of mine picked up one (believe from DD). Thing is awesome. Comes with a 22mm and 24mm cap and screams high end. Thats why I want one.

    Well after looking for reviews online they all pretty mush say its a bad RDA ( and I dont just mean jai haze) so then I phoned a buddy of mine who I completely trust when it comes to RDA and said that with the 24mm cap it is one of the worst RDAs he has ever seen,the 22mm he says kinda makes it better but nowhere near worth buying.In any case I appreciate your input :)

    Lucid RDA is my favorite. My 2nd choice is Squid Industries Chief King. I don't have a CSMNT. I have authentic Goon and Apocalypse. IN MY OPINION, the authentics are a waste of money. You can get $10 clones that are as good if not better. I don't have any single coil RDAs I can recommend. One you can look at is yhe Vapefly Wormhole. It's not really high end but it's a good RDA too.

    We disagree here with Clones, my experience has been the complete opposite. While this at times may be true with Chinese authentic and Clones but not at all with high end Pinoy, American (true american made) and European gear. For the record both the Goon and Apocalypse are manufactured in China.

    Anyway my two bits for what it's worth.

    I'll agree with that. I was talking about the Goon and Apocalypse. I wasn't referring to all clones. After I got my Lucid I bought a clone to compare the two and there was no comparison. The authentic is excellent and the clone was horrible. Sorry for the confusion.

    Oh no worries I was just clarifying. A lot of times the Clones of Chinese gear come off the same assembly lines.

    I guess it all depends on what you are looking for. I can tell you from using one it is a good RDA. Its not a cloud chasers RDA, but it is a really good flavor RDA and is easy to build on and works like a well built piece of kit. I am just speaking from my little experience with it. If you want a big ass RDA, Valhala RDA is a boss. It is also a giant flavor RDA.

    THIS!

    They may not be new, but the 2 post Kennedys are in my all-time top 5 RDAs.

    And though they may not be considered "high end" by some people, the X1 and X2 RDAs by Vaperz Cloud are fantastic for both flavor and plumage.

    Kennedy 25 or Ti goon 24mm
    Don't buy any clone shit.
    Look at it this way, you want s Ferrari but can't have one so you buy a Volkswagen with a Ferrari body. Nope still not a Ferrari.

    I want a 64 428 AC Cobra but that's almost impossible but fortunately there are some clones out there that are actually better than the original. I agree that not all clones are good. On the other hand there are some clones that are better than the authentics.

    IMO the best single coil RDA is the authentic 24mm Deathtrap by Deathwish Modz. The reason is simple, it's because it has been specifically designed to give the absolute best airflow characteristic for flavor, because with the two small air holes completely closed and the big air slot 4/5 to 5//6 of the way open it has just the right amount of restriction to give direct, focused airflow that is distributed evenly across the whole surface of the coil like it should... I have put a big framed alien coil in it that's all Ni80, 7ply .3×.1 ribbon stack / 29g frames / 38g alien wrap, at 3.5mm ID, see:

    EDIT: The mod you see in the pics I posted is the Vaperz Cloud XXX tube mech, stacked (i.e. using dual batteries in a series configuration).

    Another +1 for the Kennedy. It's dual coil, but flavor and clouds for days.

    My fav single coil is the Hadaly, that's a great little flavor monster.

    Yeah, for those angrier types of high powered dual coil builds. I own 1 × Kennedy 24 (2-post) and 7 × Kennedy 25 (2-post) because the "all the way" part is also the correct wording IMO.

    My vote goes for the Reload 1.5 if you can find it. There are some good quality clones out there for it.
