    I decided it was finally time to purchase my first Reo about a week and a half ago after looking and looking for two months now. I am still somewhat new to vaping, I started on May 1st and put down cigs for good on June 1st. I have progressed fairly quickly in this hobby, I was rebuilding my protanks after about 3 weeks, bought a Russian 91% after a month, a Magma and HCigar Brass Stingray a week later, and haven't looked back....I now own a few GREAT rdas(Magama,Plumeveil v1.5 on preorder and IGO-M v2) and mech mod clones(HCigar Stingray and Vapetech Pegasus), and a dual 18650 DNA30 box from Magnum Modz. I found out quickly that I LOVE box mods(though still love the look of a nice mech) and dripping, and was dripping 75-80% of the time, despite the minor hassle of it(though the Magma only leaks if you over drip) I obviously have read a ton about Reos, as you must live in a bubble if you vape and haven't. I have wanted to try one for awhile, but was skeptical of the performance vs rda+mech(Magma has UNREAL flavor). So I finally jumped on the bandwagon after having a major oil spill using my IGO-M v2 in the car. I got a LP Grand with a RM2. When I first received I was surprised at how small the Reo was, tough to tell size from pics. I LOVED the form of it. I tried my first build on it with 28g Kanthal, accidentally used a 5/64 instead of a 1/16 drill bit, and it came out to 1.6ohm(that's when I realized the diameter flub). I threw it in anyway as I was excited to try it out. Good vapor, not so great flavor and way too tight of a draw for me. So I drilled the RM2 out with a 1/16 bit, threw a new coil, 28g on 1/16 bit, came to 1.1ohm. Better vapor production, flavor again not so good. I played with coil height and nothing improved flavor. I was getting frustrated. So I tried a new coil, 26g Kanthal on 1/16 bit, came to .9 ohm. Centered the coil directly in front of air hole as close to edge as I could get without shorting and, BINGO!!!! Amazing flavor, great vapor production, still not quite on par with the Magma, but that thing sets the standard for flavor. Im vaping Nicoticket GCD in it and it tastes just awesome. I am so glad I got it right somewhat quickly because I have read the horror story threads on here of people not getting it right, and I wanted to love my Reo sooo bad. Sorry for the long winded post, Im a bit of a story teller. Im pretty sure Im done buying equipment for a long time other than a couple new rdas for the Reo. Also cant wait until the next batch of Woodvilles, they are so gorgeous. A big thanks to Rob of course and contributors to this forum, especially Super X Drifter, whose posts and info helped me get my setup right. 10615498_693516010722533_8989236119257234143_n.jpg

    Welcome to the 'ville! Very nice looking Reo there. And since you have an LP, you can mod all of your favorite RDAs for bottom feeding (or send them to Chowderhead @ Catfish Atty & he'll do it for you)

    Welcome to the Ville!

    BTW, Chowderhead can convert your drippers to bottom feed when you decide to sell off your tubes
