    Couldn't find any threads about it here, and wanted to see what other members thoughts are on this RDA.

    My thought is that I will be giving them 75 dollars for a gold one as soon as they hit the website.

    Don't know how I feel about this one so I'll compare it to the original Goon.
    This clamp deck doesn't seem like an improvement over the original goon and seem to take too much space of the deck, rather have the original Goon deck adjusted so that it can take bigger coils, make the screws longer and make it spring loaded.
    I prefer the holes airflow design over the slot.
    Guess I'll stick with the original Goon and wait for V2.

    I kinda like the Airflow on this one but the deck takes up alotta room and the cap will be lower as well so space will be tighter. You'll have to clip the leads prior to loading or it might be tricky to clip them at the deck too.

    You can use goon 24 top caps and build it like a postless above the deck.

    The improvement they made with the new clamps is that you don't have to share the leads, and i do like the airflow slot :)
    Probabaly buy one someday later down the road..

    Not sure if I'll bite on the LP or not.

    Love my authentic 24MMs and the 22 - but I squonkified them all and will need to see if the LP can be modified for BF and offers a better flavor before going down this road.

    The clamp system takes up way to much room. The coil leads have to be so long. I haven't tried one but to me it looks like a really stupid design. The og goon deck looks so much better.

    Yeah, it's like the simplicity that is the Goon is gone.

    Hmmm... I really like my 24mm OG goon, not too sure about this one. Looks like there is not much room for coils or cotton in the LP.

    Looks like it would be a killer on a squonk. With how small the space is, looks like a nice flavor chaser

    It came with a squonk pin.

    The chamber is definitely small the top cap is right on top of the coils.

    Flavor is very very good.

    Nice to hear that. I ordered the gold and SS, hopefully they arrive tomorrow. The original has great flavor. If the LP has better flavor, that would be quite a bonus.....:wave:

    @NickIsANoob how does the original Goon cap fit on it? Is it an accurate fit?

    The LP is SUPERB guys...

    Sure, the deck is a bit smaller, and the chamber also is smaller than the original...but that is the whole point of the atty lol....It was meant to be a flavor chasing atty, not a cloud chucking builder's atty like the original is...The new clamps are much stronger than the original's are. No chance of the top clamp bending or breaking (which I have heard stories from multiple sources about this happening). Also, the new airflow slots are SUPER smooth, and feel a tad more restricted than the original's, but that's perfect for me, as I prefer a somewhat tighter, more restrictive draw. But guys, I have to reiterate here....THE FLAVOR....IS....AMAZEBALLS! If you are a fan of the original Goon, or you never bought a Goon, but are a flavor chaser, you owe it to yourself to pick this atty up. Like Nike says, JUST DO IT!

    any of the custom Goon tips fit. I am using one from DHD (DOuble Helix Designs), and it fits snug as a bug, and looks the tits!

    I think I will stick with the original Goon for the same reasons as Niteshard listed.

    I am a flavor chaser, and liked the Goon. It and the Kennedy 22 are my go-to drippers. Looked at the LP in a shop last week. Didn't end up getting it because I was a little concerned that it was going to spit on me (I tend to build a little bubbly/crackly). Still mulling it over though. I expect the flavor is excellent. I really do like my Goon.

    It had what looked like a silicone bell. I've liked the idea of having a glass bell before, but haven't pulled the trigger thus far. Not sure how much I'd want silicone, or whatever it's made of. I also have a fondness for copper, and they had none in stock. They seemed to think it would be made in copper at some point but now that someone here mentioned they didn't plan to do so, I wonder if that was just wishful thinking. They had a lot of different colors that I assumed were painted SS.

    These little babies do put out the flavor -

    In my view, comparing the LP to the OG is somewhat pointless - they are completely different atties

    IMG_2225.JPG Threw some Fused Claptons in it.. and the clouds are Dense!

    After using it for a day,, the Flavor is a bit muted to me. I think the air flow slots sit a bit too high and your space is restricted so it can only hit the front and the top of the Coil and not the bottom, and there's not much Air Flow already with the deck size. I slapped the old Goon Top Cap on it, pushed the Coils up, and it's a world of difference with the flavor and air flow. The juice well is a bit shallow as well :/
