    RTA: OBS Engine. Top air-flow design that's virtually leak free. Easy to build on deck and a decent, but not massive juice capacity. No cons I've found yet, it's just awesome.

    RDA: Digiflavor Pharoah. Spring loaded clamps, large build area with center airflow for single and dual coil builds, and a juice well that you can partially close. Only con is the screw down cap, and some peeople experience seepage from the bottom of the RDA.

    I know there are others out there, these are just my humble opinions.

    Best is a Hard thing to Say.

    I'm into Flavor Chasing. And like to run Simple Single Coils verses Dual Coils. Size is Also important. And would rather Refill more often than have a Jumbo atomizer.

    So Best for me isn't going to be Best for a Lot of People.

    What are you into BrokenLung? And what are things that would be Best for you?

    vaperesso transformer RDA(22mm) is nice and small fitting most single battery mods, can be a single coil to a quad coil build, postless or velocity styled posts, can be a bottom feeder(has the hollow pin) if you get into squonking at some point, and it has two caps with interchangeable tops for clouds and flavour with top airflow(no leaking).

    coilart azeroth RDTA(24.5mm) is a genny styled tank/RDA combo that is easy to build on, with a goon styled deck, a nice tank underneath, gold plated and side filling with several different chuff caps with top airflow(again no leaking).

    kangertech pro tank 4(22mm) solid tank with a dual coil RBA, 5 ml, and top side fill, doesn't leak, plus factory coils can be bought when feeling lazy, and airflow in both base and driptip.

    i have all 3 an absolutely love them

    There's always the RDTA Limitless Classic, depending how you configure it you'll have an RDA or an R(D)TA from one tank, and some interchangeable parts.

    Straight RTA, as mongo pointed out, the OBS Engine is outstanding. RDA I'd defer to those with more experience with different ones.

    Highly recommend limitless rdta, or limitless xl as it comes with 2 rebuildable decks that are big and spacious. Tfv8 is another insanely popular tank

    I really like my Sense RTA-2..
    big velocity style deck, huge juice channels, adj juice ports, 6ml tank,25mm and adj airflow..seen here with a .14 ohm Clapton build..[​IMG]
    Old school but still one of my favorite RDA's is my Dark Horse with the Chuff Cap...I use it for serious cloud chasing and to try out new flavors..
    And I like the smok beast tanks..
    just my 2¢, lol

    Kayfun Mini v3, Kayfun 5 and Hurricane v1.3 are the only RTAs I've tried and are great

    Looking forward to buy a Hadaly RDA

    I'm all about flavor

    You need to say what you want from your vape, direct lung inhales and big clouds or mouth to lung and much less vapor for instance. There are a lot of choices. It can get confusing.

    These things. I chase flavor not clouds (but don't like restrictive airflow). I almost always run a single coil setup. 25mm is my preferred size (or larger) to give me a big deck to build on. Ease of build is like just under flavor for me.

    For an RTA, whatever really. Something easy to build and fill that won't leak. I have a 25 plus on the way and I am hoping that is the ticket but am a bit afraid it might be a cloud chasers atty.

    For a Single Coil Flavor RDA, you might check out the NarDa.

    $9.35 NarDA Styled RDA Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer - 316 stainless steel / 22mm diameter at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    Not sure about a good Flavor based Single Coil 25mm RTA? I don't have any.

    The griffin 25 plus is supposed to be able to do single coil I think (although I doubt its designed for it). Single coil 25mm RTA's and easy to build high flavor RDA's are what im after. I saw the griffin 25 plus has a 3ml, clone? I guess and I know from every RDA I have had in the past, shorter tank = shorter chimney = more flavor. Thinking about picking one up if my griffin is any good.

    Oh, right now I am still stuck on the magma. Nothing beats it flavor wise I have found yet (including those tiny little RDAs that were popular for a while)

    The Narda looks not super easy to build. I build my stuff pretty often, I can always tell a decrease in clean flavor within a few days (temp control helps).

    It's kinda like a Lot of RDA's. Once you find the Right Tech, it is relatively Simple.

    I have used Others that are Easier to build on. But they Don't have the Dense Flavor that the NarDa has.

    I have that narda, and LOVE it. but like you say, it'd a pain to build sometimes.

    I have 2 of these and can't say enough good things about them. great flavor, easy to build, and enough airflow for restricted lung hits.

    $26.00 Free Shipping SXK Corolla V1.5 RTA Rebuildable Tank Atomizer (Corolla V1.5, 22mm, 316 SS + PC, Silver + Green) at m.FastTech.com

    I don't do temp control, so I don't know how it behaves with that.

    I finally quit spending money on rdas, haven't found anything I like more than my Odin. Unless someone invents something earth shaking, I'll stick with it
