    Just got a smoktech RSST and for the money, this thing is awesome. Looking for a new mechanical mod to add to the arsenal. Any thoughts?

    The RSST is a dead on 22mm Genny. Most all high end mech. mods have settled on 22mm diameter. Hence the 18650 batteries are 18mm and the mod exterior is 22mm. It depends on how much you want to spend on the mod. The Smoktek Natural is 22mm and so are many other cheaper China mods and many high end also. You'll need to decide between a mechanical mod, no wires and can use very low 0hm wraps or a regulated mod with a dna20 fir instance. Good luck, daze

    I gotta say it looks good on the natural but you gotta sand down the top cap to make it sit flush. That way itll all be made in china lol. I have that as a daily use and a all philippino mod for the cloud blowing.

    If i was to use an RSST on a Provari what gauge Kanthral would be required and how many coils needed for about 2ohms ?

    I am concidering the leap into RBA's and the local b&m sell the RSST.

    Please accept my appologies if i have hijacked the thread,

    I thought it pointless to start a new one seeing as you are on the subject of RSST's.

    No hijack, it's all good - I tried different wraps on the povari and other regulated devices - I'm at the point where I'm convinced to not even mess and just get a mechanical. The higher the gauge and wraps the more resistance. You will get an error on the provari below 1.5 ohms. There are people that know a lot more about this than me on Ecf.

    To use with my RBAs and RDAs, I preordered this, which will be my first mech.

    Sometimes it sits on my Paps but also a fair amount of time on the above.

    I put my RSST on top a Puresmoker Legacy mod with the flat top adapter. I don't have a pic but if you search flat top Legacy you will find a thread with pics from other who also use that combo. The Legacy kit at puresmoker.com ran me $89.00.

    Certainly.

    Vari's are actually far more forgiving on LR stuff than most people give them credit for. I have regularly gotten away with .8 ohm set at 3.0 volts but even then to be honest it is down to the wick and how oxydised it is. Most of my wicks are light fired or oxydised with a mech, mostly a mech.

    The set up pictured above is well actually not a mesh set up but a silica one. Doubled 3mm silica, pin then 4 wraps of 32 AWG giving me 1.6 ohms. Attach kanthal with the pin in place then remove the pin before firing and away you go.

    My coils can be anywhere from .7 to 2 ohms depending on the liquid I am or want to vape.

    The RSST on a Drawtube is a nice looking combo.

    I run 28ga @1.3ohms
    Works nicely on my Sigelei #20 and kicks Butt on the Vamo at 9-10 watts.
