    This became my mantra a long while back and pretty much stagnated me doing anything else. I'm pretty much never in here any more but the Recoil and Narda brought me sniffing around the past couple days. Crazy how much things keep moving. I went through I don't even know how many attys 2 and 3 years ago and just kept coming back to my Veritas and clone and it's (for the most part) all I've ever built since. Just plain-jane single round wire vert in a Veritas. Since I stopped monkeying around I've never wanted for more. It's kinda boring. :)

    Knowing what you like and sticking to it is a good thing. It keeps you from the mad chase for new RDAs that a lot of us here are on.

    This was posted in the Psyclone Mods group earlier. These are all the attys that Mac has produced and will eventually be released. The Kryten, 5th from the left, is next to be released. The Hadaly is on the far right and the Citadel is to its left. From the outside, the Citadel looks like it could be a 24 or 25mm version of the Hadaly. That would interest me quite a bit. I really wish we could've gotten some pics of the decks.

    Goon LP release on Friday at 2PM EST. I think it will only be available on their site. Full release will be first week of January. 500 available in each finish. They didn't specify what those finishes are but based on the OG Goon I think it's a safe bet that it will be SS, Brass, Copper and possibly Black. Each atty comes with an Ultem DT, a full Ultem top cap and a BF pin. Price is $75 which I don't think is that bad considering it comes with the extra full Ultem cap and a BF pin.

    ETA: I see that the finishes are listed. My bad. They are Matte Black, Matte Gold and SS.

    Received my CSMNT today and first build is good. With the AFC wide open it is very airy, 1/2 closed is right up my alley.

    Flavor = very good
    Build quality= good, above average. No oil taste after a quick sonic bath.
    Easy of build = easy

    Gonna try some clapton coils to see how it does - I have a feeling it wants lots of coil and wattage.

    As expected, rocking this now and HOLY COW. 3mg NIC is almost too much ;)

    Dual 26 with a 36g wrap @ 3.5mm (all 316L SS)

    Best of all even with a 100watt pre-heat I get ZERO spit back. Amazing!

    Using regular coils in both, I would say the Narda is better for single coils, but reg duals (imo) the O is a superior vape with no juice gleet.

    My preferred builds are, and will always be, regular dual coils. Single coils, not so much. But to your point, NarDA is better for a single coil. But killing the O? Not in my experience!

    Too add... I agree here, the O w/ dual coils is very good and a place the NarDA really can't go.

    I wish more RDAs performed as well as both of those with reg coils.

    I don't think it is at all, only thing is you can't do large diameter crazy multi-core type coils. Dual 24g at 2.5mm work great IMHO. Intense vape.

    I was gonna ask for a pic, too - that's about what I imagined.
    I will have to try this.

    I find I'm usually happiest with an "ordinary" dual, and just didn't think the O was really accommodating - I built it like a Narda...

    Dotmod has a 24 Hour sale on the Petri V2 and is 50% off. That brings a new V2 to your doorstep for $50.00 bucks!

    Use discount code: #dotmas16 to receive the discount.

    Sadly this was too tempting so got one in Slate (love that color).

    I have the lp on the way only because I agreed to do a review (it will be an honest one although I was not a fan of the long drawn out goon lp rollout and I am trying to remain open minded about the deck) on it and got it for next to nothing. It looks like it will be decent on a squonker but we will see.

    The cosmonaut looks super cloudy which usually isn't my cup of tea but I am excited about it. Mine isn't being shipped to the fifth but I made some nice aliens for it and can't wait. From what I can see my only issue with it is the screws are on the wrong side of the deck block which crushes the coil leg from the side which I absolutely hate.
