    At some vape shops near me the only way they allow you to sample the juice is to actually taste a drop on your fingertip.

    I've been mixing different flavored retail juices in my tank since before it even was a tank, it was a carto. If you're actually trying to develop an ejuice that tastes good completely by itself then trying it that way may not be good enough, but myself I find using only one eliquid to rarely be a fair comparison. A RDA and a mixture of simple and complex juices to rotate between, constantly adjusting and varying flavor, complement each other perfectly.

    Another version of that is to mix single flavors with a little water (or PG/VG) before 'taste testing' them with your tongue (keeping in mind where the different taste 'buds' are on your tongue... sweet, salt, sour and bitter), then adjust the flavor percentage in the water to your personal taste for an idea of what percentage of that flavor you personally like. This is just a starting guide though as your gear/build will have influence on the flavor as well when the joose is vaporized.

    IMO there is a slight flaw in using these "depending on your vaping style". Typically they had high ohm coils by today's standards. When I first started vaping with KR808 gear carto's were 2.5, 2.2 or 1.8 ohm. No idea if their builds have came down/way down since though. Those high builds were fine for the tootle-puffers maybe (MTL), but not for DLH's. Very soon after I started vaping I switched to 18XXX gear and my builds dropped below 1.0 Ω. For the gear I use and my style now days a 0.2Ω is a high build.

    The skies the limit with RDA's. They come in many configurations with different types of fluid dynamics and in many sizes... some are generic, some are made for specific uses. Many of them are very easy to build and install coils for and wick (or you can even just buy pre made coils and wicking to use in them if you don't want to make your own). Most so called 'good' authentic flavor RDA's are cloned now days, so it doesn't have to be a big cash outlay to get into an RDA if you are willing to buy clones.

    You didn't offer enough information on your vaping style to narrow down the field though.
    Do you MTL or DLH?
    What gear would you run the RDA on?
    Do you use single of dual coil gear now?
    Do you know what ohm coil(s) or power range (wattage) you now vape at?

    Mentioned so far...
    ...The Hadaly is a 22mm single coil flavor atty that can do MTL fine, but has quite restricted air for DLH's. By design it can be an easy leaker if you over do it with the joose. I have 2 authentic Hadaly's.
    ...The Origen Little 16 is a 16mm single or dual coil flavor atty, does MTL, has restricted air for DLH's. Not hard to do even a dual build on if you understand the right way to thread the coil legs through the posts. I have 4 authentic O-16's.

    As a wide open DLH vaper none of these check my boxes, but they are ample for MTL.
