    It's been a while since I've posted but I'd thought I'd ask here instead of my local shop.

    I currently run the Wismec RX GEN3 300w with my Drop RDA as my go-to at home.

    When I'm out etc, I use my Cylon 218 with Redemption RDA.

    I don't use my Pulse 80w anymore or my Desire Rage Squonk, I just couldn't get the flavor right and dripping isn't a big deal for me.

    My spare Drop RDA was on my old G-Priv2 which is now failing, the 510 must be pushed in or something. Typical SMOK bullshit.

    I was considering the Aegis Legend or Modefined Lyra.

    Thanks in advance as always.

    Mod doesnt determine flavor..rda and build does. I have 2 rages and they work perfectly. Maybe before you buy another mod you can just rebuild your BF Rda.

    A different Modefined. It's Lost Vape, but with their own color screened chip instead of Evolv's DNA that Lost Vape uses.
    Built solid. Buttons and door have no wobble or rattle. Very comfortable firing with finger or thumb and in either hand.
    Hits hard. Has all the functions including bypass.
    Only about $40 shipped.(with code)
    https://eciggity.com/modefined-sirius-200w-tc-mod/

    This is with 28mm Fatality

    I don't have a G. Almost, then held out to see the next one and it was ugly as hell and they put toys on it.
    I think that black/grey Sirius is extinct, at least as new. Getting harder to find them, most places are sold out

    I really like the design of Hato K-One. But it has QC issues and they never came out with the leather looking one

    Aegis Legend would serve you well and very durable.

    I've rebuilt it 3-4x. It still works much better on a TC mod vs squonk. I even tried less/more cotton.

    Do you think it was fun for me to put the beautiful Desire RAGE in my cabinet? [rofl]

    I ordered the Aegis Legend. The fire button on that Wildwolf looks odd. I like the tank mods, like the Rage/Legend.

    Yeah it looks like it.

    And yeah, I do like collecting mods. I never found squonking to be that much more beneficial to me. Different strokes. I do love the RAGE though, talk about a durable mod... LOL.

    Yep. I know that. Maybe the Drop isn't the ideal BF? What do you use? I would have tried my Redemption but I don't have the pin yet.

    The drop is a nice flavor rda imo. I make my own coils(nothing fancy) but find fused claps to work well. Made these sunday and i was very impressed with flavor
    Stagged clapton with a parellel[​IMG]

    How did you get the stagger so wide? Did you use ribbon or something? Or just stretch the Clapton on the core maybe?

    Well , this Aegis Legend is pretty awesome. Rugged is a better word than bulky. It weighs less than my Rage Squonk (no batteries ) with the Drop and batteries. It feels solid and the fire button is the best I’ve felt since I started vaping.

    For $51, it’s well worth it IMHO.

    It’s also not that much bigger than my Cylon 218.

    Holy shit.

    I like builds above .2ohm, for battery consumption and just general flavor. But that’s amazing.

    I don't own Drop, do the Drop Solo, similar kinda.
    Could be can't paint Drop coils w/squonker, can when drip.

    While those AVS parallel coils are good, if you haven't tried, you'll probably like hand built alien or fralien for more flavor.
    Try a squonkable addy that can paint the coil(s). Pulse 2 RDA might be good.

    I still have it on the Legend.

    Rage is still tucked away in the cabinet.

    I did find this a little odd when I checked the coils. Sweet juice , but all of mine are.

    I'll rebuild my Stainless drop today anyways, maybe it's just the cotton starting to go. I never saw one tail burn like that though. I'll check the coils for hot spots or something.

    Plus, I want to use Jam Monster Blackberry with this. I've been using the Strawberry on my Redemption and occasionally dripping Blackberry in there. Not a bad mix but that stuff murders coils. Worth it.

    Yep. I like em sweet.

    Geco 45 230gr FMJ. The hottest next to SD rounds, so they're cheaper to run than Critical Duty , etc.

    I love the Legend. Easy to use, extremely comfy despite being as rugged as it is.

    It hits harder at the same wattage I had set on my G Priv 2 (and that was on the Max preheat).

    That shows you SMOK quality ....



    Best $52 I've spent.
