    My husband still loves his VW and mini protanks. He's tried my Reo/RM2 and likes it, but for him his method is hassle free and he likes switching between 3 tanks all day long. Vaping has many nuances and not everyone will be satisfied by the same things. However, I don't ever think it hurts to try!

With a Reo and RM2 you're looking at $187 add a hundred feet of kanthal and a box of cotton total cost around 15 bux. Grand total $202 for Reo setup and carefree vaping for a couple of years less the juice cost but you'd have that anyway. I'd just make the suggestion and let the chips fall where they may ...... They'll find their way here anyway if they are looking for the best.
    Compared to an ego setup it's bit more, since you have to also buy batteries and a charger, then if you take the advice here you'll get a few springs and a ohm meter. so add another $100.

    For me that was not the issue. I've seen posts and read about Reos for a long time. At one time it was a choice between Reo, Provari and Darwin, Darwin won.

    I had a problem with the hole and the bottle behind it, just seemed strange to me. I also had to get over my love of VW devices. Two things convinced me.:

    I found I always stayed in the same wattage range, by investigating rebuildables I came the conclusion that I could match anything. thus an RM2

    I'm hard on devices an evic lasted me 3 mths before I had craked the screen and killed it. Thus a REO Grand.

    In conclusion they might not take your advice right away, but if they keep reading about Reo's they might eventually give it shot like I did.

    Making gear recommendations without coming off as a fanboy can be a little tricky. If some antagonism starts, I avoid it anymore.

    Most people will argue in support of whatever they own in an attempt to justify the purchase in their own mind. Look at any poll on ECF and you'll see a lot of "I've only tried......but it's great!" Then they keep on buying more junk.

    I try to make informed opinion statements and stay out of the nonsense. Some will listen, most won't. So be it.

    There are so many choices and that is great ......

    I tend to never suggest the REO to folks online (or any other device for that matter).

    But in person if I have the chance to show one to someone and explain the benefits and let them try I always do.
    I've said it before and maybe I'm selfish but I really don't believe that everyone deserves to find the REO.
    Now days there are dozens of set-ups that can keep people off of stinky cigs.

    Most REOnauts are a special with a real appreciation for simple stuff that just works every time.
    Not everyone is like that.

    There will always be the "Walmart" crowd that will buy 6 coffee makers in their lifetime - that in the end will cost them more than my one good one that I paid a lot for. I don't know if they don't get it (the math) or what but when they are in line at wallmart getting #6 they are still smiling and happy that they found a coffee maker for 20.58

    Most of the time they are the same folks saying "I'm not paying 140.00 for that, its just an aluminum box"
    (Ya I've heard that at least a dozen time in just the last year) Its almost word for word each time I read it.

    No its not just and aluminum box (as we all know) its way more than the sum of its parts.
    And they are way more parts than you think just looking at it. And each part has to be made separately and then assembled by hand with care. Rob can correct me but I think if you count each screw, plastic part, tube, bottle, and o-ring there are 21 parts and they didn't just fall together (that is why they don't fall apart).

    So in the end me myself ... I don't try to lead most folks anywhere, and don't really care if they drink or dehydrate into dust. Yea - ouch - right ? I'm getting old and grumpy.

    I rarely suggest Reos. I only mention the qualities & benefits why I use Reos & let them decide on their own should they choose to listen. Unfortunately many people will never even consider a Reo. Tube style mods are the "norm". Many people think bottom feeders are plain outright ugly & too different from the rest. Some who think that actually do put that behind them & in most cases "listen" & then realize. Not everyone is willing to try sushi.

    If I could go back in time and tell myself about Reos, I would have saved a lot of money. I have a gazillion BCCs and TCCs.

    "If you get yourself a REO it could end for you.
    Bought my first REO Grand almost 3 years ago .... Still have it plus 6 more REOs
    The REO is totally pocket friendly and leak proof. Its like dripping without having to drip, 6ml of juice on board that will never leak on ya."

    this is all it took for me to jump in. at this point i was ready to transition, i was becoming frustrated with my (at the time) current set up. if i weren't, i never would of looked twice.

    thanks BIG HITTER.

    You've all hit the nail on the head from what I can tell. I have been bugging a friend of mine who I got started vaping to get a REO so he can stop complaining about his mods. He won't do it. He's determined to make the others work. Which is fine but meanwhile I just got two random people who I wasn't trying to peddle a REO to, to go out and buy one this weekend. lol

    I've taken on board what you all have to say. I'll change my tactics on my recruitment strategy.
