Sounds like a tight draw. Like your butt hole when you almost drive your lawnmower off a retaining wall. Lol. Looks good though. But I think he likes a tight draw

Almost want to break my self-imposed no-more-vape-buying-ban --- mainly because I have loved every attie I ever got based on Todd's opinion; conversely, every attie I got despite his low opinion I regretted buying after trying for myself, lol

My biggest critique - the etching is distracting and not very attractive IMO

I feel the same way... when it comes to restricted or loose MTL, I find he vapes very similarly as I prefer...

His RTA looks interesting in design, but that lower cloud engraving... to much for me... the main one, I can live with, although In my opinion, I think the only places manufactures should emblazon their markings is the bottom, deck, and the top area near the drip tip... leave everything else clean.

I do wonder about having the air slot and the single hole only on one side though. I'm not sure of the logic behind that, but this is only an intro video.
It's dual sided though buddy and you can adjust anyway you like.

The one sided airflow is just another option on the AFC, mainly so people could take it down really tight.

Hope this explains it a bit better.

I personally like the engravings. A little cloud is nice. The RTA looks looks really well made. I like thick glass tanks and e-juice level I can see until the bottom though.

I like the atty design, looks like the Rose :giggle: jokes aside think it’ll be a good vape, I’m on the fence and haven’t pre-ordered it yet, I like V&D products and like Todd and do like to support them, however

3 things

worried about the restriction on the draw...made that mistake before buying an atty and I hated the airflow afterwards, so until more get it in hand and are willing to compare it to other well known atties I’m not gonna take a punt at the price point....the theatro is borderline too tight on the draw for me so if this is more restricted I won’t get on with it.

Like many not overly fussed on the engravings around the bottom of it, it’s nice plain... let the atty do the talking, although it certainly isn’t a deal breaker

V&D have historically been against outsourcing (this being put together in Hong Kong), not sure why the change in tact announced at pre-order stage...it does lower the price of the unit to buy which is great for us, but to me it goes against the principles they stated historically somewhat...kind of liked investing in home growns so few of them these days.

Design, draw and waiting till actual users have it in their hands for "real" feedback, I agree with 100%

As for the Hong Kong thing, that was the decision from the start, we wanted to make something that would be more accessible but give the same performance and quality that people expect from V&D

It would have been an easy choice making this in the same location as the theatro but the cost would have been double for the consumer.

If folk buy it and like it, we'll be happy campers, if they don't, well there are plenty other options for them these days and as long as they are off the stinkie stick, I'm happy :)

completely agree

should state I’m not a vape snob, far from it, those who know me here know some of my favourite atties come out of China...perfectly happy vaping all sorts ....just getting at the V&D brand alignment, I do understand the accessibility and price point aspect....I dunno just not a decision I thought I’d see V&D make I guess

Still anyway it’s besides the point, it’s done, so I wish you all the best of luck with it Mark. May it be the start of a successful new journey for you :)

gonna be weird seeing other people review something you came out with right? Haha

Do t have to be Hemo to get this one. If it's not a knats ass draw I'll probably pick it up to support Mr Todd. I was recently kicked to my shed with my woodworking so I feel like we have that shed Bond. Lol

No wait, D'oh!

RTAs are normally not what I like. This one looks dandy. I might have to watch for it and save some nickles to buy it. :) It might fit on the Vindicator tube mod. Ah.

Psst, please make a squonky RDA. :) Wait, I take that back. My wife would likely nab it. All because you'd make it.

Thanks

Vapinart is not taking pre-orders on it but do have it listed

Might have to bend over and get it from over the pond anyway

This is my first hardware purchase in 2020 - though it was supposed to be a no purchases year, hahaha

They should have them the same time as the stores get them over here.

Certainly - right now, I'm just trying to ignore how much I don't enjoy pre-orders, haha

It's torture

Since he can’t do himself and obviously wouldn’t anyway in here (gonna call it out) ...Mark is presently running a charity raffle with the very haar he used as his final prototype 0001, amongst some other awesome goodies (really pretty mod from milo mods, cloud 9 cotton, PC coils)...all monies always go direct to the great causes and nowhere near mark, charities are voted on by the shed FB group at the beginning of the year...details for this particular charity are on his YouTube page if you weren’t aware, and he runs them monthly (for the most part)

The charity raffles are flat out awesome - I won in one of Todd's charity raffles awhile back - thrilling experience
