    Finally got my hands on a Reload RDA and I can't wait to throw a giant 4.5mm 316l alien in it 3x28gx38g in it I just made specifically for this RDA. I'm super freaking excited for this and can't remember the last time I was this excited for an atty

    Anyone here have the In'Sane 22 RTA? Just curious. The price is absurd, but still curious about it.

    Too bad diagrams don't vape. Jury-rigging is not the same thing as building. If the coil works better one way, that is the heart of building, not following computer graphics. LOL.

    But, whatever works optimally for any particular user is the "right way".

    Hated it at first. Was really let down. The position of the air slots vs how far down you have to bend the coil to not hit the top cap made it so the air skipped off the top of your coil, making for terrible flavor. My o-rings were so loose I could sneeze while holding my mod and the caps would come right off. Having said all that.... I used the dental floss trick for the o-rings, they are sufficiently tight now, and I built some really small fused claptons with a 2mm ID so I could have them bent as much up as I could get so the air was coming up from underneath, and switched to the ultem cap as a safeguard in case my coils touched the top. Now it is performing well and giving great flavor. Now, it's an expensive RDA. more so for me living in Canada, with intl shipping and dollar conversion it was about $150. Between that and the fact that it's 528 and they made one of my absolute favorite RDA's made me really excited for the LP. I'm not sure if all the hoops I jumped to make it a useable atty (minus the o-rings... Shame on 528) were intentional or not, just seems like a lot of work. My 2 cents anyway. I'm vaping it as I type this, so it hasn't been relegated to a back shelf yet.

    Simple trick: pop the o-ring off and wrap a piece of dental floss in the groove. Cut it so both ends line up, then pop the o-ring back on over top. It pushes the o-ring out about 1mm in radius so your top caps will snug on nicely.

    I just got mine and used a 2.5mm coil as suggested and I still find it very close to the ultem cap.

    After bending the coil down to make sure the airflow hits the coil. It's still very close and the coil just clear the post by about 1 mm or so. Which means I'm maximising the space I have.

    Might try 2mm simple round wire build next. Perhaps this will work better.

    Quite afraid to melt something if chain vaping and the Therion gets warm after a few drags at 60watts.

    SS cap gets really hot and I prefer the ultem.

    In short. I had higher expectations and should have waited for reviews before purchasing it. It's not the worse RDA but just falls short of perfect which the Goon 24 definitely is to me.

    I expected a much better RDA, perhaps a much much simpler build might work better.

    Got mine last month, and agree with everything said here. Loving this RDA for particular "cloudy" flavors. Only con I'll add is that you are going to want to clean it thoroughly when you get it. Alcohol soak, scrub, rinse with boiling water, etc. Will be using a FDV bottom feed pin to run on a parallel squonk mod ... should be a fun experiment.

    A parallel squonker? I didn't realize there was such a beast. Nice.

    The vape block app... It's a weird app/store combo and I had to jump through hoops to age verify but I really wanted that RDA also a store called innovape should be restocking soon. The Reload has actually quite good for flavor for an atty it's size.

    Has anyone tried this 24mm RDA clone?

    Royal Hunter X Styled RDA.

    I ordered one today to fit my IPV4S, wondering how it might perform?

    I have not but eager to hear your thoughts on it. Looks like I might like it if it has wide open airflow.
