    I vape strictly MTL which doesn't consume that much juice. The Berserker has a really tight draw and 2ml and if I fill it up I can leave the house without worrying about carrying a bottle with me. :D :D :D

    On my 2nd SXK Skyline I had to wrap both ends with duct tape to get the deck off, this was after initial use so juice was present.
    I removed the o-ring on the deck that seals against the glass and checked fitment without it and it was fine. I changed that o-ring to a 12.5 x 1.5 mm one as I didn't readily have a 14 (orig. is 16 x 1.5) and now it's fine.
    So I measured the ID of the 2 SXK glass pieces and there was a .2 mm variance.
    I also bought two spare Coppervape glass pieces, I measured the ID of these and they match the SXK versions, one is .2 mm smaller than the other.
    Just thought I'd mention this in case someone else is having the same problem getting their deck to unscrew

    Yep, there is a slight variance in both the SXK and the Coppervape (I have both). I put one of these on my version of the Skyline (the SXK one) $7.31 Iwodevape Replacement Glass Tank for Aspire Cleito Clearomizer (5-Pack) 5-pack - authentic / 5ml at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping and it fits pretty good, no leaks and goes on & off easily. I'll have to go downstairs and remeasure that deck o-ring (I forgot what one I put on), I'll get back to you on that measurement.

    Edit: 5 hours later; Looks like I used a 14x1mm o-ring for the inner deck (juice flow control). I hope that that was the one you were referencing DW. That's the one that my SXK DID NOT come with, and the Coppervape DOES come with installed.

    It's actually mainly reconstituted wood pulp ;)

    As the McNugget is to Chicken, so Rayon is to Trees :p

    Actually Kusie, the Rayon will shrink just a wee bit when wet and Cotton will slightly expand, just for the record, as has been noted in numerous posts over the last couple of years, and this is why Rayon will not work so well in some atomizers (Digiflavor's Siren to name just one) and Cotton is the better choice because it seals the juice pathway better to prevent leaks into the coil chamber.

    Haven't had a problem with Rayon other than when first getting it. Learned that for me the best was to twist it to make it smaller and then stuff the coil with it. And definitely thin out the tails a little

    Yes, it's easy when you learn how to do it, as most things are. But, it is a different animal to use, and some have not figured that out yet. If I can get an atty to run good on KGD, then, and only then, will I attempt Rayon. I guess that I'm a slow learner when it comes to Rayon myself.:(

    Very small learning curve,but the difference in flavor and longevity is worth it.
    Just pulled the deck after 15 fills to show you a picture. I put a thumbnail so you can blow the picture up.

    I tried pulling up the Coppervape website but received a warning about it being a web attack site.

    I have the Coppervape version of this Skyline clone for a bit more than a month. I have tried many different builds in mine and used several of the plastic inserts to attempt different airflow results. I have never had any leaking problems. I have seen most of the 25 pages of positive comments here and viewed some of the very positive YouTube videos. I own a lot of rta's. Many single coil rta's. For the life of me I cannot get the Skyline clone to even come close to the flavor that I get from many of my other rta's. I confess I am more of a restricted lung vapor than a true mtl guy. Maybe that in itself is the reason. I see constant reference to the great flavor produced from this tank. In my experience the Kayfun V5, Rose 3, Hussar, Taifun , Ammit, Hurricane or a host of others I own produce better flavor than the Skyline. Maybe if I was a serious mtl vapor this would be heaven but for restricted lung vaping as a single coil rta I find this just average and prefer most of my others.

    I only shared all this for those that are thinking about buying this based on rave reviews. If you are into single coil rta's for restricted lung vaping there are better choices. If you are a serious mtl person this may be exactly what you are looking for.

    It's very leak-proof, provided you wick it well. I fill mine up with the JFC fully open and don't get any sign of flooding.

    I agree with you Chodi, I also have the Coppervape Hussar, the Digiflavor Siren 22mm & 25mm, and Taifun GT-2/Fev 3 & 4/Hurricane clones, along with the New Berserker, and I think that any of those have better taste using the exact same juice and builds, but, it is a good atomizer, just not Great IMHO, and I am a dedicated Tight MTL vaper, for the record. I think that the V-1 Siren's (I don't have the V-2's) and the New VandyVape Berserker are the best that I have for flavor, with the older Fev 3 & 4 in second place. I have to say that the SkyLine clone and the Berserker are the driest RTA's that I have, as in no leaking/seeping or wetness around the air flow ring or 510 area.

    It´s really funny, because my experiences are completely opposite. Since I started to buy RTAs I really tried a LOT of different single coil tanks and to be honest I always return to the Skyline because it´s the only tank (besides Doggy 2K16) that can produce the flavour I want from my juice. I have two Kayfuns (V5 and prime) and they both don´t even come CLOSE flavour wise. Same applied to the Berserker, which was a massive dissapointment and gave me constant dry hits. I use a liquid that has some sweetness added and both kayfuns and the Berserker where NOT able to reproduce any sweetness - put the same juice into the Skyline and BOOM - a rich massive vape with lots of sweetness and flavour.

    I ran with the Skylines for a good while but am back to Taifun GT3's (styled). I really like the Skyline though, top notch.
