    Default Ithaka vs Kayfun

    For those who own both, which do you like better and why? I'm torn between the two. They both look great but I don't know which I'll like more. Or when there will be another run of Kayfuns.

    Both are excellent. Each have their pros & cons. The Kayfun I like mainly as my daily carry because its quick & easy.

    I have both and they're both wonderful atomizers. Can't go wrong with either. Kayfun is easier to set up (no NR wire required), Ithaka takes a bit more setup time, but allows more tinkering. Both of them, set up properly, vape wonderfully. Build quality on both is flawless. Flip a coin! You'll win whether it's heads or tails.

    Thanks for the input! I own the Ithaka clone which I like a lot and I'd assume is very similar to the real thing, but I don't use a dual coil setup in it. I was ready to buy the Ithaka tomorrow but COV just went out of stock. I think I'll buy whatever is available first. I'm leaning more towards the Kayfun because the color matches my Roller. By the way, does anyone have experience with the Taifun GT and is it related to the Kayfun?

    I think the roller's ss-m finish is closest to the kayfun. I don't have a roller, but going from pics I've seen, it seems close to what I'm using the Kayfun on, which is a 69 mod eric's edition. Should be a nice match on the roller too.



    Ithaka is much more polished...



    Again, both are beautifully made and vape wonderfully.

    I was going for the matte finish. My Roller has the ice matte finish and from one picture I've seen with the two, the color matches nicely.

    I like the Ithaka more. To me the setup works where I always get great flavor and clouds every time compared to my Kayfun which sometimes just produces clouds but not as much flavor.

    How is the draw on the Ithaka? I like the light and smooth draw of the Kayfun.

    Any chance of the Kayfun(any of them) being in stock today? COV just got Ithakas back and I want to get one of these while I have the chance.
