    I know there's several older threads on this topic, but so many new products have come out since the last thread I could find I thought I'd see what everyone's opinions are now.

    Dual Coil: Csmnt. Hands down Love everything about this RDA. Dead Rabbit is a runner up.

    Single coil: Wasp nano. No runner up but will be getting a Pulse 22 soon and we'll see how they compare.

    Over all is Csmnt. Nothing I don't like about it.

    I’m enjoying my Pulse 22 bf rda:)
    Not that I have much basis for comparison.

    I also have the Wotofo Sapor rda that I brought the conversion bf for its pretty good too dual coil.

    I haven’t had a chance to build my Vandy Vape Mesh Rda planning on trying it with single coil Claptons.

    I also have a Wotofo bf rda I haven’t built yet.:D

    #1 a particular goon clone from FT, (yes my favorite RDA is a clone that’s under 10$), even though I have several authentic RDA’s.

    #2 wasp nano

    Thrown in for the hell of it, favorite RTA is the OBS engine
    :cheers:

    Single would be the pulse 22 but have a wasp on the way for comparison. For dual I really like the Apocalypse

    I use a 25 gs SS316 3mm id 8 wrap parallel coil in mine and it is just wonderful and fits perfectly. That is actually 16 wraps of wire total. Works out to ~.23 ohm.
    26 ga should work fine as well.
    Use the build at 26-30 watts on a regulated and use it on my mech squonkers as well.
    I only sqounk with it and only drip to test flavors.
    Should vape just as well dripping though.

    I plan on getting a couple more just in case I break or lose some or they discontinue them.
    The are cheap a bit under $12 at FT.

    they are really the only Squonk atty I have used for the past few months, since I discovered them.
    They are a lightly restricted LH, so if you like MTL they are not best for you.

    Lightly restricted LH is perfect! What does your coil ohm out to?

    Did you see the new resin top cap ones? They look nice.

    Yes, I would definitely Squonk it :)

    Which color would you recommend getting since your have 4 :D

    I just bought all SS with the Stab Piss looking top :)
    The first one worked so well I figure why try a different one.

    I also like them much better with an open drip tip such as these which are an open funnel shaped inside tip.
    Seems to enhance the flavor. Tried a straight bor tip and it seemed to create too much condensation....
    Love these drip tips use on tanks and drippers. Pretty much the only drip tip I use for this year. Think I have bought 20 and lost a couple...

    Not sure I have a favorite. I like the Gorge, NaRDA, Goon, Velocity. Difficult calling one a favorite.

    I only use single coils, but use many dual coil rda's in single coil mode. Right now my favorite is the CoilArt DPro followed closely by the Apocolypse!

    I also like the Hellvape Trishul, wasp nano( I have 3 of them Crom...Lol) and an Entheon on the way.

    Yeah. I found out about doing that myself recently. Dual coils at 0.30Ω in a Velocity deck is way too hot to vape, at least for me. Went down to the single fused Clapton which as I figured put it at around 0.80Ω. That is much cooler to vape. :) Broke out a single coil one yesterday evening, the Goon Max (clone), had it already set up but kept having trouble getting it to draw vapor. I looked and it was merely an issue of tweaking the wick a bit. Dong real nice this morning with a :coffee:. Now, I'm debating weather or not to Brasso up the brass Coppervape or clear-coat it as it's patina-ed. Such a terrible quagmire. *grin*

    Not yet. But they might or I might lose one or another alien might nick one!

    or they might be like the Subtank Mini V2 and be discontinued!

    CSMNT is my favorite RDA this year but B2K is really neck to neck on it (though the Conspiracy fixes the flaws I had w/ the Cosmonaut)

    The Troll v2 by a long shot! I have the recoil, pharaoh,velocity, apocalypse, goon, limitless plus rdta, TFV12 (with the triple coil rebuildable deck) and plenty others. I've bought all the other ones thinking they could beat the troll for flavor and they just can't. I've gone through hundreds of clapton builds and the troll always outperforms all of the others and stays consistent with amazing flavor from build to build. The build deck is also a breeze to slap coils in, I'm currently running 24ga x 32 ga dual claptons at 3.5mm in diameter with 7 wraps and it went in smooth as butter and tastes amazing. My go to build though is 26ga x 32ga claptons 3mm about 8 wraps slightly spaced it's always great for flavor. If you want something great for flavor and a breeze to experiment with then you NEED the Troll v2 in your life! Seriously though it's kinda sad because i've been trying to find something better for about 2 years now and im finally realizing that I don't think there is anything better out there.

    Right now, my fav is the Drop RDA. I like it in single and dual coil, as BF for squonking. I love the build deck and airflow, great flavor, even love the clear 810 DT it comes with. It's a great little RDA.

    I need to amend my original post. While I enjoy the Wasp Nano, the Pulse 22 blows it out of the water, for me. I've hardly put it down. I'll be getting a Pulse 24 soon just to complete the Pulse family. Hell I may become a Tony B fan boy.

    Honestly I love my indestructible. I know, it's super cheap, and finicky to build on, but I find myself using it constantly. I've got a tsunami that I like and a goon. My collection is getting a little bigger thanks to friends. I love building it gets me out of my head.

    They designed the airflow perfect for slow on the indestructible. I like how the top airflow works

    I'm Really torn on getting the Deathtrap in 30mm or 24mm. My wife bought me a Lost Vape Drone on Black Friday, and it would fit the 30 mm perfectly, but I'm not sure if its the right call over the 24 mm.

    Single Coil: Hadaly
    Dual Coil: Reload 1.5

    The 24mm would be a better pick for that particular mod IMO. On a 30mm RDA that only performs well if putting in a seriously BIG coil build, 166 watts is nothing... it isn't even enough for what I recently put inside my 24mm Goon so don't be fooled by the fact the Deathtraps are "only" single coil RDAs, as the build space on them really is much bigger than you might expect.

    That's exactly why I was on the fence about it. I think the Drone is limited to only TC as well and can't just fire in a "Power" type mode which is not helping either. I was also worried that it was 30mm just for the sakes of being big, and that flavor was out the door on it. I'm really not too big of a fan of how Ginormous RDA's are getting now TBH.

    I am fairly certain that the drone can fire in straight power/wattage mode.
    I do not recall ever seeing or hearing about a TC only mod.

    It can just need to lock the buttons and press up or down to navigate to power mod ...then unlock to adjust wattage


    Edit: actually hold up/down together for 5s to activate this then cycle up and down to find power mode

    Hold again to unlock now increase or decrease wattage :)

    Thanks! I just got it a few days ago and couldn't find anything In the manual about it, which I thought was strange.

    Ahh yes those wonderful manuals we get with vape equipment...

    I feel sorry for people just starting vaping that are not internet literate.

    Power mode on the Drone is achieved by raising the temperature protection all the way up to 600°F, and, next, pressing the up button one additional time so that the temperature limit will read "OFF".
