    Got my trigger finger itchin', only want to get one of the two, stumped.

    Usually tootle on throughout the day with 50/50 at around 12mg with a golf-ball-through-a-garden-hose draw, but got a hankering to switch things up and go a little heavier with the VG and a little lighter with the nic, more chain vaping through the day.

    Kinda leaning on the Pharaoh Mini, but that honeycomb airflow of the Kensei is ... appealing and intriguing.

    Thoughts?

    I wish I'd used these to compare but I've only used the full size pharaoh and that's far from tootle puffing hahaha.

    Hopefully someone will chime in

    Yeah, looking to put the puffer-method away for a few, go back lung/restrictive-lung daily driving for a while. Gotta keep it interesting, you know? Change it up a bit. Stagnating leads to smoking, the way I sees it.

    In that case I highly recommend the ijoy exo then. Easy to build (even with my shaky nerves) and flavour is top notch. Definitely can get a decent restrictive lung hit too :)

    I just bought the Pharaoh Mini and like Rip says... it does have good flavor. For my taste (it's all subjective) I like an "airy" draw but a little restriction. Not too tight and not like one so open that I could breath through it and not loose consciousness. Rip mentioned in his video that it was a little restrictive but for my taste it's tight as heck. I use it cause it has a good flavor and it's as easy to build on that deck as they said. (I'm kind of a newb to building so if I think it's easy then a trained monkey could be successful) Watched his video before building and did the same spaced Clapton he made and had the same ohm readings he claimed.
    After saying all that, I like it and it's flavor is great. I LOVE my IJoy RDTA Box.... 12+ mil built in tank and easy to build and the flavor is fabulous. When the 3-battery version hits town I'll be in line to buy that one. (The 2 battery unit eats the power kinda quick) I'm on the road all day and the tank will hold enough juice to get me through but can't make the batteries last more than 1/2 of the juice storage... probably why they're new unit is exactly the same only 3 batteries.
    Hope this helps. (again it's all subjective)

    Rip thinks every new tank that comes out has unbeatable flavour. I really don't trust that reviewer and he's irritating

    I think the biggest draw to the Pharaoh, to me, is the single-coil set up - my preference, for sure. I think the last dual-coil RTA I got was a Griffin from Geekvape, and it was a fantastic vape for a while, but I always come home to single coil.

    My decision is still up in the air, but thank you for your feedback!

    You know, I started down the path of disliking his personality, character a while back as well. Like you say, everything is the best. Everything is the X killer. Everything chucks the sickest clouds and flavor for days. I just started watching vape videos and reviews differently, skipping through the intro blah blah, right to the up-close stuff from packaging and unboxing all the way through til it comes back out to regular view and I'll go ahead, leave a like and click on outta there. 7 minute average vape videos, hehe. About all I'm interested with vape videos, now, is to see the thing I'm about to buy up close, broken down and taken apart. Everything else, may as well be some dude working for commission behind the counter looking forward to my credit card swipe. It'll cure cancer and date your sister, buy it now!

    I might have to try this pharaoh mini as I love a good single coil setup :) personally gives me more flavor than dual coil.
    I'm currently using a berserker and although it is an MTL atty I am using 0.3 fused claptons at 30 watts. I like a tighter draw but it is vaping great :)
