    All my atties are LR, around 1.5-1.6 range. I use these on my Provari because I drip.
    IMO, these are just too hot to run at 3.7v mods. I run these at 3.4 to 3.5 on my Provari
    and they get really hot. Some even E2 on me at 3.5V!
    I tried these on the Reo and, sure enough, too little liquid, the juice burns and I taste a
    metallic something from the atties. Too much and it floods.
    I need to get some 1.9-2ohm atties and try them on the Reo.

    Tried RY4 Dekang and that's a pretty clear juice. Also nothing.
    I think you and Tybin hit it on the nail with the atties.
    What are the premium atties out there? Any suggestions?

    I am new to the Reo also, but would a reducer tube be needed? Perhaps the juice flows a bit too freely and needs to be slowed a bit. I think that is what the reducer tube is for-not sure though.

    All my juices are 50/50 and when I saw the 70/30 it was the first thing that came to my mind.

    Well, the difference between dripping and using a bottom feeder. Is that you can see how much you drip in the atomizer. Please take a look at post# 3 and #8 again. It gives you the instructions you need to blind squonk and atomizer suggestions. You just need a bit more time to get it down.

    DEFINITELY get some Cartomizers before you get anymore atomizers. It'll make it easier for you to learn. Some people just don't like using atomizers in there REO's since they simply can't grasp how to feed it correctly.

    you could try a 306 atomizer with a clear drip tip
    with that setup you can see the amount of juice you get with each squonk

    Good point. Totally forgot about that one and also, the reducer tube might help with high PG juices. This will slow down the amount of juice that feeds to the atomizer.

    Again, my thanks to you all for the wonderful insights. :toast::toast:
    I've put down the Reo for awhile until the cartomizers
    that I ordered arrive.
    I think this will solve the problem as it is a user problem more than anything.
    In the meantime, the Darwin and provaris are getting a workout. :)

    I don't think anyone has asked- what batteries are you using? It may be a long shot but depending- this could be one of the issues.

    The AW IMR 18650 is the recommended battery for the Reo Grand. 1600 or 2000 mAh versions will both work fine.

    Your atomizers are probably your weak link, so I'll make some humble suggestions. Try 1.8 and 2.0 ohm atomizers. Both Avid Vaper and Ikenvape sell 510 atomizers that will be within these specs and ship without primer. Before you use an atomizer, slip a carto condom over the threaded end, drip 10 drops or more of juice into it and give it 10 minutes to soak in so that your wick is fully saturated. Stand them upright on a flat surface. Upright = driptip end UP. Before screwing it onto your Reo, remove the carto condom, wipe the threads with a paper towel, gently blow out the excess juice by placing your lips around the threaded end, and then it's ready.

    When you vape, try a more gentle draw.

    Thanks mudflap :toast:
    Does your soaking method apply to all atties?
    And, yes, I agree that 1.8-2.0ohms is the way to go as
    I never go above 8-8.2 watts on my other mods.
    Just too hot for me and I find it a hassle releasing the fire
    button a couple of times a toke.

    Yes, all atties, but some ship with primer in them. If I think an atty has primer in it, I have a Shark steam cleaner I use to blow them out, then I'll prime them with juice. You could also soak it in vodka or pure grain alcohol.

    and followed it up with a squonk(?) and, presto! A great vape!!!!
    Thank you all for your help!!!:toast::toast::toast:
