I've had the citadel for about a week now and to be honest I'm not impressed at all. Still experimenting with different builds and coil positions but so far the citadel can't compare to the flavor I get from my recurve and wasp rdta. Shit, I get better flavor from my Zeus single coil rta. :(
The single coil Zeus is my favorite, and it vapes great even with restricted airflow and a higher resistance coil. I'm running mine with a K1 Clapton at 0.75 ohms, at 32W, with air about halfway open. Fantastic flavor, cool plumes of rich vapor. I love it. Wicked properly, absolutely no leaking.

I gave my Zeus to a buddy..... There is nothing that gets near the Reload.....

The Reload coil placement is like an RDA, about 1/8 inch from your lips...... And the same deck ....

That's why you get such flavor...... It's like having a wicked RDA all the time.

And beats all squonkers too, without pushing bottles, without getting ejuice everywhere, what a messy vape using squonkers........ having to clean and clean..... Screw that.....

I haven't been able to match anything to The Reload......The flavor is amazing on this fucker .....

Same here. My Zeus put three OBS engine nanos back in their boxes for dust collecting duty. For me, the Zeus really excels with fused Clapton's and vaping fruit flavors. Love the flavor I get from the Zeus.

How do you position the coil between the posts? Angled towards the juice flow holes or centered between the posts? I center the coil between the posts and leave extra cotton on the deck floor to help keep that coil moist.

BTW. Awesome avatar! Tigers are my favorite. :cheetah:

My Zeus got benched within a month, too airy. The only thing that I have that may replace my Nanos is the QP JuggerKnot Mini. I love this atty and ordered two more. Hitting it as often as the Nano and much easier to clean and maintain.

Thanks! I especially love white tigers.

I also center the coil and leave the wick kinda long so it can drape through those channels and onto the deck. Ends of the wick need to at least touch the deck.

Normally I don't like very airy devices. That was one of the surprising things about the Zeus - there is no trade off of flavor for air, at least imo. It makes a nice rich vapor without sacrificing flavor, even running 50/50 juice.

Theoretically I am doing everything wrong, yet I still get great flavor AND vapor.

Son ordered a new Aegis, so passed his old one to me, and it has become the new permanent home of my Zeus. Happy! Love Geekvape!

Nothing has touched my Reload in (2) years...... The flavor and airflow, the nice draw.....

It doesn't hold much juice maybe 5ml maxed out..... With the bubble tank...

But the build quality and small feel man it's the only RTA that hasn't been a hype.... It's the real deal.....

Once you own it, you will realize what you've been missing......

Can anyone vouch for me ?

I think they are worth the $70 or $75 bucks..... That's what I paid for the gold ones....

I just ordered a black one..... But they are up to $80 bucks now...... :(

Damn I can't find an authentic reload for sale, I'm finding that's normal for great RTS's.
This thing ain't high end but it Chuck's what the fuck clouds and tasty..... Using (3) coils.....


Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
Since you are testing and I see you have a lot of mods in the background, what would be your recommendations for something you can still find for sale?! I want the best flavor, clouds come last. Also, are clones worth it, I can only find the Reload RTA clones and I don't trust them at $14.99... Thoughts?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news..... But the best tasting tank and thick clouds I get from the reload...... There is nothing like the flavor that comes out of this amazing quality tank.....

You will notice that everything else will sit around....

Now when it comes to clones there is a reason they are $15 bucks......

Most clones are manufactured with simple metal..... Don't think because it's Stainless Steel looking that it's actual Stainless Steel.......

They get sprayed with a layer of stainless steel that wears off rapidly (heat-juice) deterioration. The end result will be vaping corrosion.

The real ones are cut from a solid block of stainless steel which makes them strong and anti corrosive.

So if you want to try it, $15 bucks it's fine.... But then you will want the authentic.... So now you paid $15 and $70.... So $85.00 bucks.

I bought one on eBay for $60 bucks to test since I saw the hype and loved it so much.... I have 3 now..(2)black (1)gold.....

Ask anyone who owns one and they tell you is amazing !

Make sure it comes in a can..... No paper box......The Authentic come in a metal shoe polish material styled can.


If $70 is too high then go for The Triple get the Version 2.... Quieter and smoother airflow.... for less than $40.00.... I got mine on eBay for $24.00 bucks.....

$70 isn't too high, just don't see any authentic ones for sale on ebay.
Let me know if you want to sell 1, whatever price you think is fair. If you ever think to sell 1.

I really like the gold one!!

Might give the new Squape Nduro a look. Swiss engineering, prettttty nice. Nice price tag too. But they always come out with Squape clones a few months after their release. Comes from Stattqualm in Switzerland. Todd has a new video on it.

Then you need to go grab yourself a kayfun v5² it will set you back about 125 with shipping included flavor top notch and steam tuners also makes a drop kit for it makes it 20 mm shorter. Another two very close runner ups stattqualm squape E(c) the non metal version is capable of switching between dl and mtl with reducers. One does come with it 1.6mm max air flow. Another one is the KHW mods dvarw dl it will cost you about 100 flat with shipping and the nano tank or you can get the steam tuners top fill nano section it will add 35 dollars though. I did find theTaifun gt 4 in a all glass version for about 145 dollars with shipping. All 3 of those tanks kill the flavor game hope this helps

I had a V3 and a V4 Taifun all legit and they were $150.00 or more..... And Steam Tuners...ha ha...all.... and They are huge in size compared to a Reload... I had all Scottua Tanks... Every Modfather ever made.... Every Voltrove, Churchill, RDA, RTA, Rdta's....

And you can believe me a well wicked reload is simply amazing..... And a super small package.....

This set up as you see it with The Vapedroid..... It's so small and light.....

And The Fatality is way up there in Flavor have you tried to find a black Fatality...... You cannot find a single one.....

I know Flavor.. The fatality is just heavy and 28mm..... It's for people that can carry weight all day long and to keep I'm the car....

And several here know the Flavor acquired by a Reload.....

I'm not starting anything or want to argue with anyone here..... And I don't want to sound like I know everything...

I have tried $100 to $400 Rta's in every shape and form.....in the last (5) years.....

And I go back to The Reload..... Always..... And every time.....

The round table is open to anyone that loves the mentioned above flower. And as knights we have to seek out new heights and keep true to the round table tradition but remember the round table only has 12 seats but if you fill in the gaps circle after circle our table becomes a shield. There is strength in numbers and just for future reference I am king Arthur lmao ,
