    Trying to decide between these two for my 14500. Both seem sweet

    The arrow is a genesis. It also is leakproof. I really like the idea of that because I love gennies but I hate that they leak

    The spheroid is a silica (I think?) Atty. I also love these.

    What I want is people who have owned both or at least one of them to give me their opinion.

    Matters if you like gennies or silica.... I really like my Sheriod and have yet to find a genny I like.

    I like both too. They each have their pros and cons. I'd choose the arrow and put a micro coil and cotton in it.

    Personally, my Spheroid is my favorite atty. Built with 4/5 wrap of flatwire and ekowool its a beast. I havent found a genny yet I prefer over it.

    one thing to keep in mind is the spheroid is truly spill proof, will not no way spill or leak and taste like a dripper on steroids.

    the arrow is a leakproof design wich prevents the atty from spilling juice by closing off the driptip and airhole, but it will still fill up the cap if left sideways long enough, I have not seen how or if the fluid drains back into the tank when held upright again.

    so far my assumption is you may have seeping when you decide to go use it and reopen the holes again if too much fluid is in the top. I keep having this vision of it laying on its side all day, open it up to take a hit and a big mouthful of juice like when you overfill a dripper or the wick is too flooded to fire first few times. just guessing here but something to mull over.

    The arrow is great - one of my favorite gennies. Some caveats: it's a little tricky to build the dual coils because it's rather small. Best to roll the coils on the wicks outside of the atty, then install and trap the leads; it's a fairly tight draw, even in the "wide open" setting.

    The procedure for "unlocking" it after carrying it around sealed is: first open the drip tip by aligning the notches; stand it up for a bit and allow any juice to drain down; then align the breather holes. If you do the breather holes first there can be some seepage from them.

    Can you drill out the air holes without removing the leak proof design

    I think you could, but you'd want to drill both holes on the cap and the atty well rim. One of them is oblong. Not sure if I'd want to mess with that one. Maybe just drilling the round ones would be enough

    If youre willing to experiment, the spheroid really is a versatile little atomizer. Far and away my favorite and without a doubt one of the best I have ever tried. I preference it over a kayfun simply due to the size. As for a comparison with the arrow, gennys in my experience tend to be higher maintenance but the tradeoff is obvious. The Spheroid is the closest thing I have found to the superior taste/vapor of a genny (or SS Mesh wicked device) without extra time/care required for a genny style device. That being said, I still prefer the spheroid over the arrow but like most things with vaping that is my personal preference and you may find the opposite for yourself is true.
