Looking to see what peoples top 3 RDAs are, since picking one can be tough. What makes it your favorite? What makes it different from others? What would you recommend for someone who was looking to try something new?

So far mine are:

Veritos for single coils because the flavor and leak resistance.
CLT2 for dual coils because it is huge, easy, tons of airflow, has heat sinks, and has the air holes in the negative posts.
Poseidon for quad coil because it is designed for quad coil and easy to build quads on.

Smok mini bell rda the veritas and magma
The smok is a steal at $6 and gives better flavor then the magma IMO

Magma , Veritas and Origen. All three rule for flavor and hold a ton of juice.

Top three 22mm RDAs I currently love:
3) the doge with wide bore delrin tip
2) the mutation x with a glass wide bore tip
1) the dark horse with the included HUGE drip tip. OH MY!

There are best with dual coil nichrome zipper or dual fused nichrome clapton running .15 on my ipv3.

When it comes to 28.5mm I would say Plume Veil or Tobh

1) Stillare V3
2) Zenith V2
3) 28.5 mm Stillare V2
I run these three the most on my mechs..The Stillare V3 blows good clouds, great flavor using 3 (24g) coils with all three air slots wide open..its my favorite to date...

The best rda I have is the cigreen holmes. It is by far the best built/ fit finish rda I have ever used. 30$ well spent. Anyone who would get one would not be disappointed. The well is huge and it's leak proof. Also the deck comes out and it's easy to build. Love the 2 post design.

I keep changing mine, but at this moment, the top three are

Magma, Doge with the air control top, wide mouth and the Tugboat v2, with wide mouth top.

now tomorrow one of my others may take top three spots. Depends alot on the build, the juice and of course, my mood....

Love my Kayfuns and I am still getting use to The Big Dripper.

I've been looking at the Holmes. Looks like a sweetheart of a RDA. May go ahead and pull the trigger on one.

Yeah, i'm 10 months away from the same age , biggest negative for me was not realizing my eyesight went to shit so fast lol. I couldn't figure out why i was having so much trouble building coils until i put on a pair of readers .

That was a big reality check realizing i needed readers when i don't feel a day over 35 .

53 next month and already using a bright light with readers to wrap coils.
Next will be a magnifying glass on a stand. Shopping for them already.....

I like those but find as I got older, I looked for a good pair of readers with the swing out magnifying glass. It really helps to see them in person before you buy there or online. Some are cheap and others are really nice and sturdy.

No doubt. They're so good I really don't need or desire anymore RDAS. They're perfect, especially the Veritas. So easy to drip, adjust air and no spillage. The magma flavor is slightly better, given that I've only tried a few builds on it and one build with the veritas. But the Magma leaks a lot and have to be mindful when filling as stated 100 times online.

Orchid v4 on the way for my sole tank atomizer. Can't wait to have one and fill it 24/7 with my diy cheesecake =). I need two more mods now to house all 4 of my atomizers. Lol

I would love to see a Veritas in the larger sizes but it has to be a 1:1 design (they are offered in larger sizes already but they have a shallower well and a shorter back wall ) which prevents me from going for it.

You can see the placement of the O rings on the base of the 1:1 and the larger non 1:1 sizes , the 1:1 are spread further apart and has a considerably deeper well.

The Magma i have not had leak yet on me , always fill with the top off and stuff a lot of wick down deep and it's amazing.

Can you post a pic? I'd let to see that 2 post design..

Just started dripping for flavor and convenience a couple weeks ago. I only have 2 so far with an A-Mod King Sword mech.

Love my Magma by Infinite. Don't have much trouble with leaks unless I over fill it. Also trying the A-Mod Freak Show. Pretty nice with good flavor and better airflow than the Magma.
