    I just got into the RBA scene last friday and i dont see why i have never bothered trying it. Smoothis hits, biggest clouds, and best taste i have ever had from an ecig. Im currently running an RSST on a Smoktech Natural Mod mechanical. I also have an iGo-l but i find the drip is so obnoxious. I run on just a basic coil setup with my RSST with a 400 ss mesh wick. In your opinion whats uour favorite coil setup and favorite RBA/RDA? Pics welcome of your setups ImageUploadedByTapatalk1372883561.927182.jpg

    RSST.... on the Natural (or any mechanical mod), I perfer 28 awg 2/3 wrap. this gives about 0.7 to 0.8 ohm. On a regulated device, I prefer 30 awg 2/3 wrap. This gives about 1.1 to 1.2 ohm. #400 or #500 mesh both is good.

    I've only got "low end" gear to play with but I'm loving this setup. A natural and an Igo L. 1/16th micro coil at 1.6 ohm with 30 ga and cotton wick. IMG_20130703_173907_725.jpg IMG_20130703_173950_100.jpg

    I like. I had that exact setup minus the micro two weeks ago. The igo isnt bad i just dont like drips. I only use my drip to sample flavors now and days.

    Ihybrid synthesis with dual or "U" wick and dual 4/5 wrap 30ga coils. On my GP Paps Lux this setup hits like a freight train and vapes like a steam engine.

    I didn't think I would be a fan of dripping either. I used to carry something with a tank for work but I gave this a chance a couple weeks ago and I'm glad I did. I can't say I use it exclusively but it's what I'm constantly reaching for.

    I'm a big fan of the Vision Eternity. It's one of the cheaper RDAs out there at about $30, but it's of good quality. Holds an insane amount of liquid for an RDA. It doesn't require any tools to assemble. But it has a long way to travel so the vape is pretty cool, which is the entire reason I got it. I'm a freak and I like a cooler vape. So if you're a weirdo like me and like a cooler vape, then 1.7Ω at around 4.8v - 5v is a perfect vape on this thing.

    If I had a working camera, I'd post a pic of my setup but I sort of dropped my camera in the sink :oops:

    This is my favorite:
    30 ga Kanthal A1 wrapped around a 16ga blunt tip luer lock needle then attached to the atomizer, slide out the needle, slide in a wick of rolled cotton and squeeze the onboard bottle to drip from the bottom (thru that little hole). The excess drains back into the onboard 6ml bottle.

    Fresh squozen juice on demand.

    The atomizer is a REO RM2 (yep, that's a ceramic floor :) ) and the squeezebox is REO grand. Really no other way to go if you like leak free, hassle free vaping, dripping, RBA's and pocketability :)

    Right now, my favorite setup is nearly solid 500 mesh wick with a 4/5 wrap of 28g in my RSST. I have the air-hole bored to 1/16", but that maybe too large.

    It currently lives on my nemesis mechanical, but reads 1 ohm flat on my provari.

    cool to warm vape, good flavor. i can hold the button down as long as i like and it never burns the juice; good setup for me as i chain vape when i get the chance.

    the 3/4 wrap was warmer, with a slightly stronger flavor profile, but it tended to burn the juice after 10s or so.

    i have spools of 30g and 32g, so i may spend some time this weekend playing with fewer a 3/4 or even 2/3 wrap, but i'm really liking the sturdiness of the 28g.

    honestly still experimenting and i haven't even changed the mesh grain yet. only variance so far is the tightness of the roll.

    That is nice setup :) Are there any cheaper RBAs that can be used on the REO? Not that I can afford to get one now but REO would cost me al ot as it is and that RBA is another $50 on top so wondering if I can try and save a little if I ever get a REO

    Oh, by the way, my favorite . . . . .

    RM2 on REO w/ 26g wire and sterile cotton ball (well, balls; but really "ball-fraction")

    How did you make the coil like that? And what the purpose of doing so?

    You mean with the loopie in the middle? Fold wire in half around a toothpick or drill bit, then wrap from center out. I saw a coil like that in some instructions for a cheapo atty, once. I used to use it when it was important for a build to have the legs come out of the same side of the coil. Here, I used it to allow for space/wick in the middle, as I thought maybe a 0.5Ω Micro-coil could use a little more wick to keep it wet.

    Anyone here have a A7 ?
    Im curious if I build a vertical SS mesh wick on it do I just have wick sitting on air hole in center of the posts or insert it into the airhole ? I saw pic of it set up like this but no info on it.
