    Angry Cyclone AFC top cap won't fit………another RM2?

    I have had a Reo Grande & RM2 for………idk about a month. I'm selling off some other gear and back shopping for my second.

    In the mean time, I've continued buying tubes (blasphemy) and other stuff…and I really like my Cyclone + AFC top cap. I sold off some of the other stuff and was all set to order a BF Cyclone, another AFC cap, and a second Reo when I realized the AFC cap won't fit.

    I know the Cyclone is a good RBA without it, but damn……it's a really nice top cap. Makes the Trident seem like a POS.

    So, any ideas? Do I just get another Reomizer 2.0 with the second Reo? Do I go with the Cyclone and drill it out? Or is there something out there as good as the Cyclone+AFC that I don't know about yet?

    You might talk to Rob, he could mill the dripwell down until its flush with the threads of the connector. It would fit then as long as its not wider than the dripwell. It could be a crapshoot on where the coil lines up when it's flush though. Would you mind taking a pic of the adjustable cap sitting on the dripwell? I've been thinking of the same thing myself.

    UGH. Do you think Rob would do that to a REO? That seems like it would completely mar the shape of the whole REO. To me it's like cutting your baby's toes off to fit a pair of shoes. I'd get another RM2 and never look back.
    Using various REOs with various RM2s and LOVIN' it!

    It wouldn't take much and if he did it before painting you probably wouldn't notice.

    The AFC is too wide for the drip well.

    I like my RM2 a lot. But, I feel like there might be something better out there. The air hole doesn't quite line up as well as I'd like (and no, it's not a matter of stacking o-rings 'till I get lucky...that's a bad solution) and the posts are so damn far apart for the coils I build that I end up ignoring the holes and using the screws as clamps anyway.

    I'll probably just get another RM2, I was just completely enamored with my Cyclone+AFC dripper, and I was wishing it'd work.

    Any other good options, or is the RM2 really the best there is for it?

    There's one ^

    But it'll run ya a left nut if you can find one. That one is not currently and never will be for sale .

    Go to markbugs.com and check it out - chalice II. I suspect that there will be another run in the future, but for now, you just have to be happy looking at that picture ^

    I actually prefer the RM2. I bought 4 with the proceeds from one of the chalices I sold

    Hell no, I would never machine/modify one of my Reos & I'm perfectly capable of doing it but that's just me. That's a sin! I wouldn't be surprised if Robert said no.

    If you really love that RBA you could use an unsealed shorty 510 extension. Not sure how it would look though.

    It'd also possibly lose even more voltage, which doesn't seem like a great idea...the Reo doesn't feel like that great of a mod in terms of voltage drop anyway. I mean...it doesn't matter, I'd just adapt my coils. But it'd mean less battery life.

    I think I'm just going to get a RM2 and not worry about it. If something better comes up, either I'll sell it or I'll have a spare...or a reason to get a 3rd Reo.

    I'm thinking mini 2.1 this time. I wonder what's in stock.

    Is that through experience or have you been watching that "guy's" video/reading his posts?

    The BF Cyclone works great, you don't need the AFC cap to get a good vape. It could just be me, but if I've got anything variable I can't leave it alone. Always trying to tweak the voltage, wattage or airflow. Never have that satisfied feeling because maybe I can get it just a little bit better. I'm loving my setups now because my only options are Squonk and Fire.
