Reload vs Scottua vs Sherman RTA


Has anyone tried both? If money is no object which is better? I've also heard sherman competes with these two.

For flavor, the 24mm Reload RTA is better than the 25mm The Tank RTA despite the huge price difference, IF, for your reference that is, you use 27/36 Ni80 aliens at 5 wraps 2.5mm ID (0.11 ohms dual coil) on a single battery mech with the Reload's airflow wide open. But I am fairly convinced that not too many people use that particular coil build for their reference to compare... albeit m.terk still keeps selling these same exact coils enough for me to be certain that I'm not the only one out there who knows what is what.

There seems to be debate between the reload and scottua.
You can't debate personal preferences in flavor I guess, but... for how I like to vape, the (24mm version of the) Reload RTA focusses the airflow more powerfully toward the center portion of the coils. As a result from this, the incoming jet of air is narrower so a comparatively smaller volume of air is travelling at a greater speed, and, air speed has a noticeable impact as for what really happens on the downwind side of each coil in pure terms of turbulence characterizations/patterns, or, what they call the 'wake' in the science of aerodynamics─sorry if this sounds too technical to you, but there's simply no other way to describe this particular kind of natural phenomenon. IME this RTA offers similarities in that department, to how an RDA vapes like. If you've ever vaped on a 2-post Kennedy RDA with fairly 'angry' type coils (not the kind that produce violent spitback, but ones that are nonetheless on the somewhat briskier end of the spectrum) at high power levels, that's when you'll know what I am talking about. It's the resulting cooling effect that is evenly dispersed, as opposed to it being unevenly dispersed, across the entire surface of the coils also including on the opposite end of the coils. This cooling effect is what's responsible for keeping the surface temperature of the coils in balance all the way from start to finish during the pull, not just on the specific side of the coil that points toward the incoming airflow, but uniformly, i.e., on BOTH sides of the coils.
