    I use 14500 mods almost exclusively so I stick with RDAs that are 17mm and under. My two favorites are the eBaron Dripper by Leo and the Kayfun Mini v2.1 ES.

    The eBaron Dripper by Leo comes in two versions: the Dripper Spiral and the Dripper Pro. The former has a spiral design on the drip shield and the latter has a plain drip shield; the Dripper Pro has a wider base that matches the tapering and finish of the Provari. Internally they are identical, so any review you see for one will apply to the other, performance-wise. They use ceramic cups and are meant to be set up with R/NR wire, though it seems a lot of people are unaware of this or choose to ignore it and set them up without joining the NR wire. They hold a lot of juice for a dripper that size and I like them enough that I have three of them, two Spirals and a Pro, in my regular rotation. The only thing I don't like about them is that they do not have an adjustable center post.

    The Kayfun Mini v2.1 ES is sealed at the bottom so it can't be used as a bottom-feeder. It's also quite expensive, especially when compared to single-function drippers. If neither of those things are deal-breakers for you, it deserves a look because it's superbly crafted, extremely versatile, and a great vape. If you want all the details, see the user manual. You can use it in drip mode, tank mode, or long tank mode depending on how much capacity you want. Everything's adjustable. Super easy to set up; plain old Kanthal & silica will do ya. Svoe Mesto also makes a cool thing called the Sticker that lets you mount your Kayfun Mini side-by-side with a small mod if you want a different form factor. The larger Kayfun v3.1 ES has no drip mode, in case you were wondering.

    I'd like to try the Cyclone sometime. It has a nice look to it (IMO) and appears to be high quality. I think a couple of my local brick & mortars carry it, which is always nice.

    yea the baron rocks but $60+.
    but for cheap throw down 30 bucks and get a handful at fasttech to play with, or an igo-l and maybe an octopus, i have most and several are actually built well. tossing the china wick thing and rewicking with 3 mm and they all kick it hard

    then if you feel inclined buy a nice one.

    i been on a dripper kick for about 2 months now and a little tuning and the right materials you can pretty much match a geni taste wise with the right dripper.

    hey guys i appreciate all the info. my plans are to buy a rebuildable dripper and make a few builds to compare the flavor to my current genny w/ ceramic. if the flavor is better i might then try the bottom fed devices. i love the genesis attys and especially the porous ceramic wick, the only issue is that it seems that the last 1/4 of the juice degrades slightly because the wick is in constant contact with the juice, the flavor is still good but just not as good as a fresh tank. with drippers you get a fresher supply of juice, its just that i don't like dripping, this is where the bottom feeder might come into play. thanks

    looks nice buddy, especially on my vela. but i don't think i could just drip. if i like the flavor of these drippers i would definatly need a bottom feeder for it. so i will buy a decent rba and if i like it i will buy a reo and an rba that works on it. thanks

    Have you used Ekowool on rebuilding RBA? I'm thinking of 2mm since it's hollow...

    + 1 on the RM2, with Cooling fins like an *old school* two stroke (well all two strokes have been old school in MX/SX bikes for about 10 years) but the newer, old school 2 strokes, like my 01 CR here, are liquid cooled. Only fins are on the Radiator guards

    I know, it needs a little wash down.
