lately i got back into dripping after being super into rta's! i purchased the jenna about 4 months ago and have been loving rda's all over again. my favorites so far are the jenna, 454 big block, and the kennedy. though lately ive been more into flavor drippers the kennedy was my first high end dripper! but ive really been loving the higher resistances of .6 and .7 at 50w. i usually build with ss316. a single core of 26g wrapped in either 32g, or 38g. i find i get way more flavor then a dual core! i also use temp! i know alot of people cant stand it but after finding the perfect temp and watts or joules its as good as regular power mode as long as you keep your wicks wet!

I love the single coil rdas. My go to has been the psyclone attys for quite some time now, hadaly, citadel and entheon/Hadeon. I also really like the shogun from vaperzcloud and reload S from reload. Not sure if any of those are considered high end, i guess it depends on who you ask.

high end is in the eye of the beholder, that term means different things to different people rather than cost alone

however single coil 22mm RDA’s are my favourite and is where I’ve invested most (granted some member here have tried more than I have)...even so I like a balance with my Vapes...Im more into flavour but a nice cloud as well with a semi restricted draw...and the groupings are so close in terms of performance of many I’ve tried ...that you can almost ignore that element and go with other things to Pick then apart

Psyclone love all their single coil atties, and Mac is a true gent (good people behind it all make a difference)

DNV venom ...monster

Flave 22...excellent at everything

Van & Del...top notch Jazz is my fav...Theatro is solid as well and again nice people behind it all

Krma is solid

there are others too

Wotofo elder dragon ...every bit as good as some on here nope it’s not high end but performance wise not all that different just to come back to my opening.

Totally agree, the Elder Dragon is a sort of miracle for its cost and availability. Most recently at myfreedomsmokes.com, going for a mere $10.

I love the Psyclones too and the KRMA of course mine are the clones though. Also enjoy the Entheon, & recently the Entheon with Hadeon cap.

with the smaller builds you might be better off striking the jazz it likes a little bit bigger than build you want to chuck in it ...soul S would do it though 2 small coils side by side or they also did the Poet ...although 5A’s basic V1.1 might suit you better as airflow is adjustable, they just come out with the V2.0 can’t adjust airflow though on that one so it’s not on my list to get...prefer to control it myself than let them drive it (learnt that after the poet)

psyclone hmm Hadaly or citadel with the reducer probably for that type of build you said in OP ...entheon works best with bigger coils imo

venom does take a 510 DT with an adaptor haven’t tried small build in it but it kinda whistles when you reduce airflow so I’d say possibly strike that as well ...although airflow is spot on wide open for my tastes

flave will be nice for you

also worth checking out the pixie from Vapefly not bad little atty that

I prefer neither flavor nor clouds. Instead, I prefer a certain combination of both flavor and the pleasurable effects of tactile-gustatory synesthesia, which, for me, translates to the fact that my perception of flavor is skewed profoundly in the presence of other stimuli acting on my sense of touch. Specifically, each time when I feel the temperature, the wetness, the density, and the texture of the vapor, my sensitivity to the flavor intensity, the flavor depth, the flavor detail or layered structure of the individual flavor notes actually changes. This phenomenon manifests itself in such a particular way that, the more pleasurable the vape feels (tangibly) to me, the stronger this pleasurable feeling causes the actual flavorfulness to be magnified. Conversely, the more anemic or otherwise un-pleasurable the vape feels, the more detrimental the effect on taste becomes.

As for which high end RDAs are my favorite ones. It depends. I like variation a lot, so, I could give you a whole list, but then, the coil build that I put inside either makes it or breaks it, and, due to the fact I own a multithousand Euros collection of high end authentic RDAs, I suppose a more meaningful approach would be to just write a couple books instead, albeit you'd need to be capable to taste clouds by feeling them to make sense of literature. If you are a lexical-gustatory synesthete, maybe it could work... :D

For squonking I only use Profiles. For all my testing I use Hadaly and Entheon clones. They're great but when I use them on a squonk it gets very messy. I've never felt any need to spend a lot of money on anything vape related. My Topsides are the most expensive things I've bought.

I enjoy it both ways it’s just a little different airflow.
I feel the same. I stick with the hadeon cap though. Not so much because I prefer it, but I'm deathly afraid of losing the plugs now that I've opened the little baggie. Lol ‍:facepalm:

Can someone just verify for me that the Hadeon cap is the one that looks just like a Hadaly cap? The Entheon cap looks more like an Axial cap?

It's difficult to even find a straight Entheon listing on the web, without it being all commingled with a Hadeon cap!

If what I said is right, I have an Entheon clone, and use it with the Entheon cap. Not sure why you'd develop an atty to reduce the leaking problem of the Hadaly, and then put a Hadaly-ish cap on it, which would just bring the leaking problem right back. :confused: Obviously there is something I don't get here.

I feel the Hadeon cap is a tad tighter draw compared to the Entheon. Usually just use that one air slot on both sides while the 2 others are blocked off.

Hadeon has 2 hikes like the hadaly and citadel. The entheon is one larger hole.
The hikes are higher up than they are in the hadaly, which reduces the leaking

Ok, thank you. The cap I have has one hole on each side, an Entheon cap. I like the airflow on it set wide open, so guess I wouldn't want a Hadeon cap if it's more restricted than this.

Its really not anymore airflow so much as the hadeon cap is quieter than the entheon and a slight nudge on flavor depending on flavor profile. -at least that's my impression.
If my rda didnt come with both, I'd like to think I wouldn't have bought the hadeon... but let's be honest.

KRMA is the only thing atomizer I have that could remotely be considered "high end" and it's good. Really good, but I find myself vaping the Unicorn/Mass mods Axial in single coil more than anything else. When i want a dual coil cloud chucker it's the QP Kali. I personally consider both of them to be mid range. They were expensive for me.

For everyday use I prefer a mix of flavor and clouds.

My only high end rda I have is an Apollo byLeo. It came with a bf pin and is absolutely gorgeous!
