New Reo Grand
So i just got my Reo grand in the mail yesterday. Its my first mod and only my second pv(first is eGo with dual coil cartos) and am really overwhelmed with all the info in the which atomizer to use for the reo thread (alot of info and so many different opinions). So am wondering for someone who vapes mostly 18mg sweeter juices (BWB vanilla bean, malty toffee) i am wondering which atomizer would be best to grab for my Reo grand.
From what ive gathered thus far 1.8 to 2.0 ohm LR atomizers are recommended but i don't know much about differences in brands and threads(?) ex:306,801,510 and such. Can anyone help me out and maybe a couple links to some good sites for finding such atomizers.
More info: I am using some Bauway 510 Atomizer, 2.5 ohms atm from madvapes since those are the only ones i had laying around but am not getting good flavor from my Vanilla bean and am getting some gurgling and burnt taste, dont know if that is normal or not since i do not know how to use it very well yet.
Am complete noob at this and would appreciate any help or suggestions at what i could be doing wrong as well. Thanks so much in advance.
2.5 ohms will probably be pretty cool and flavorless. Throw the dual coil cartos on while you get the hang of using your REO. They are probably 1.5 ohm. That will tell you a lot about where your juice tastes good with a true 3.7v battery. For the time being, just think about it like it is your eGo, except you can add juice to your carto by squonking.
Just as mlinky said, throw one of your cartos on your Grand, you'll get the flavor that you want for now. Also, you are familiar with those and know when it's time to push the bottle for more juice so you won't get that burnt taste either.
If you'd like to go with LR306 attys (they have the same threading as the 510), I get mine at Liberty Flights. On their site, there is a 20% off tag and if you click that, all the prices change. A pack of 5 306's run about $28.00 and they last, they are joyes.
Congrats on your new Grand, and welcome to the REO family!
Sorry i shoulda been more specific with the type of dual coils i have eGo Mega Dual Coil Cartomizer. They do not fit the Reo at all so not an option
I would suggest you try two or three of these attys. Prime them with 7 to 10 drops of juice from the top, let them sit like that for about 10 minutes, give your bottle a gentle squeeze and gently draw on the atty (don't hit the fire button yet) via your drip tip till you hear/feel a soft gurgle. Stop squeezing your bottle at that point. Your atty should be properly juiced. It might be a tad flooded, but that's better than it being too dry. That leads to burnt wicks and yucky tasting attys. Hit your fire button and gently inhale for a few seconds. Enjoy. Rejuice the atty when you detect flavor and/or vapor dropping off. Every few drags, depending on how you vape.
They work well, are priced well, and will give you good flavor and vapor. After using them for a while, you can decide if you want a warmer or cooler vape and then we can direct you to some of the higher priced premium attys that have tighter specifications. You might decide they work perfectly for you and you don't need to try higher or lower resistances or different style attys. All the better, if so.
Edit: I forgot to add, blow out any primer (machine oil tasting yuckiness) before you prime them with juice.

I use boge LR carto's on my reo and I vape BWB malty toffee exclusively. I love that juice so much I would marry it if I could. I haven't tried using an atty with my reo's because ever since I got my first reo I only had carto's on me and its actually my preference to use them. They work great with that juice in my opinion
Thanks alot for that great advice mudflap.
I got a boge 2.0 ohm cartomizer when i bought the Reo but i am having no luck with it. I keep getting juice sucked threw the end whenever i take a drag. I do not understand what to do because i filled the carto and then attached it to my reo and fed just enough juice to where i saw a little through the reservoir. Am i doing something wrong?
Vapor Kings has a better deal on bulk genuine Joye 306 LR 1.5, but you have to buy 10 for $42.95. Thats $14 cheaper per 10. I got 20 and none of them were DOA and all register 1.5-1.7. They do slightly mute the flavor compared to my Boge 510 LR carto 2.0, but not by much, and I mainly vape the sweeter stuff.

Cartomizers squonk differently from atomizers. There is already so much juice in them, you don't have to add very much or very often. Read BH's tips The REO Grand and Mini can run cartomizers too !!
You have juice in the center hole of the carto. Blow it out and then try
