    Default You can lead a horse to water

    Thoughts,

    I've seen over my time here on ecf the recommendations given to people on the various devices. I was a victim for months until I found my reos. Does anyone see this as well or is it just me?

    I understand there are thousands of devices out there. But the latest craze seems to be those crappy pro tanks. Oh and a ego spinner. They aren't much better then the stuff that broke not long after me buying them back in '12.

    Would it it be better to save my own sanity and just let these people find a decent vape, or peruse giving recommendations on something that actually works?

    It's one of those things, where if I had that advice early, I would of saved a nice amount of coin.

    Well it depends on what a person wants. Also of course the money they are willing to spend. If a person were to pay $85 to a B&M for an ego kit to start out with. Then buy clearo's at 3 to 5 bux a pop over a year you're looking at $136 to $215 over a year. That is not including if you get another mod. 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.

    People will always have to find what they like that works for them in terms of liquid, device and budget.

    You can offer advice is all but for every person that says "buy a Reo", there's another saying "get a Provari". Choice is good.

    My opinion is the beginning vaper tries to capture that fantastic vape for the least money possible.

    Like most things in life vaping is a lesson learned in steps. Will it work first of all. Then how to vape with the least amount of hassle with vape gear. Throw in the always present concern of money spent to achieve your goal.

    I think suggesting the REO is always proper to a vaper that is making their way through devices. Some will pass and keep trying the latest PV and accessories. Some will decide to give the REO a try.

    I hate to think that to consider a REO one must be frustrated at their vape gear. But I know that is the case for a lot of buyers.

    I basically state my reasons for owning/using REO's and let them decide if they want further information.

    Stand up and be counted:
    REO ROLL CALL

    You can't save 'em all, but I try. At the least I can show as many new vapers as I can one of Super-X's inspiring videos.

    I could happily advise for either based on hardware merits. But, the reo has the untouchable advantage of juice delivery. Between bottom feed and the rm2, it is a perfect match. My provari had too many tank types on it to even remember. I never found a tank that worked perfectly for me, and was fiddle free.

    I got close with a few things. The evod was pretty hassle free....but like 1.5ml and not the best vape, etc.

    I totally agree, I would have saved at least the cost of three reo's with all the clearos and carto's and mods I bought.

    I have a couple friends who vape, one with a sid/vivi nova and one with a spinner/ce4. Showed them the Reo and how to build coils, they enjoy the vape but just don't want to get that "into" vaping. I look at them .

    The Reo seems to have an image of being a more advanced user device, especially with the RM2. I know for myself, that I wasn't comfortable wrapping coils until I got a bunch of protank rebuilds under me. So, I can see how it can feel overwhelming for newbies to get into bottom feeding RDA's.
