    What surprised me was that my fav juice is one that is fairly cheap (Berry Creamy by MBV). I keep trying the expensive stuff because of great reviews, but the Berry Creamy has a better flavor than any of the other berry juices that I have tried. Guess that's a good thing, since I don't have to spend a lot of $$

    I really thought that the rba for the subtank mini would be a pain to build and wick and not have good flavor, but it's really is a good little flavor chaser if you get a good build and wick.

    It really surprised me how good it can be compared to a dripper, I do a lot of driving and u usually take both of mine with me when I'm driving with different flavors and the same build 26/32 Micro clapton

    What surprised me is that I actually like menthol juices. Especially when paired with fruit flavors.

    Thanks for the contest Crowdude and Madvapes!! This looks really interesting!! Good luck everyone!!

    This goes back aways, but one that surprised the stuffin outta me was the VV gripper

    It was made very cheaply which I didn't like......but this thing hit like linebacker!! [​IMG] (don't have a linebacker gif). lol

    It was PWM which most folks didn't like.......but this simple cheapo mod had some power to it. Bought a second one when I tried to fix my first one and ruined it. Used the second one even when I had to use tape to keep the batt door closed and the batt contact had come loose, and I had to line it up just perfect and close the door quick! hehehe

    I think my biggest vape related surprise was tobacco ejuices. I tried a few to mimic cigarettes when I first started vaping and all were gag nasty and when I would be on ECF and see people saying they vaped a tobac ejuice... I thought they had rocks in their head, hubby only wanted to vape an apple tobacco at the time and I got into DIY because the one he liked was very high PG and caused him problems. I got into DIY because of that and ended up tasting A LOT of different tobaccos... everyone raved about RY4... I thought it was gross... but came across some tobac flavors I really started to like and found I could vape many of them all day if I needed where I couldn't most of the sweet or fruity flavors. Iced tea... no lemon became a favorite and it is really close to a tobacco. Today, most of the ejuice I vape is either a tobacco or a coffee of some sort but if you had told me this when I started vaping or even the first year, I would have thought you were totally nuts.

    The Melo II tank has out performed what I expected from it - might have to get another one (or three).

    Thanks for the contest!

    The Nautilus X surprised me. I'm not a tootle puffer at all, but I actually was able to get a satisfying vape using it. Flavor is really good for such a tank. Not an everyday tank, but good for stealth vaping in places I shouldn't ;)

    It's an Ejuice produced here in Canada called Double Double, it's a coffee vape name after a Two Cream Two Sugar coffee from Tim Hortons, it simply amazing!! It's become so popular the company can't even keep up with demand lol...

    I was surprised when I tried my first LR atomizer (yeah I'm a dinosaur) and dripping. I couldn't believe the difference in taste and vapor. Now I'm surprised everyday at the advances in the technology. Heck I remember when everyone was anticipating this new product coming out called an ego that meant no more carrying 5-6 510 cig alike batteries to get through the day at work lol. Now I have stuff that only needs charged once a week. Looking back over the past 6 years - we've come a really long way.
    Thanks for the contest - I too remember the 14500 box mod kits you guys used to sell - I still have a few I never got around to putting together.

    I recently got a subtank mini and had never dealt with coils and wicks. I installed the rba section and after some trial and error it is now my favorite tank. I was surprised how easy it became because at first it greatly intimidated me.

    Thanks for the contest and a chance at possibly winning an awesome prize.

    I was surprised at how my taste in juice has changed over the years. Started with tobacco flavors = gotta simulate that cigarette as close as possible. Then discovered fruits - oh yes, citrus, berry, creamy and still discovering the incredible combinations available.

    I have been highly impressed and surprised by these (not necessarily in this order)...

    1. The Eleaf iStick TC60W Kit. It's a great TC Device that is very rugged and can take fall from a good height onto a hard surface. The included Lemo RTA is very nice as well. Overall, a great Kit.

    2. Vaporesso cCells in the Target 75VTC Starter Kit. These Ceramic Coil Heads give amazingly great flavor. The Target Mod is quite efficient with a single 18650. Overall, another great Kit.

    3. The Reuleaux DNA200 with three 18650s. I think it's the best TC/Standard Device out there, but charging via USB is what surprises me. It has been said repeatedly that charging via USB would take a very long time, but it really doesn't take longer than other devices with one and two 18650s. Since all three batteries are in Series with a great Balancer, they all basically get the same current and seem to charge just as fast as a single 18650 device. However, when I charge my 18650s externally, I charge at 0.5 Amps to extend battery life, so anyone who charges at 1 and 2 Amps may not be impressed.

    4. The SubTank Mini (the STM). I love the RBA. It is very easy to build and works great with both Kanthal and TC Wires. It is my All-Day Go-To Tank (on the Eleaf iStick TC60W). I wish I could find another STM in Stainless today!!!

    Thanks for the contest, Mike and MadVapes.

    The thing that really surprised me is the fruit flavored e-juices.I didn't think I would
    like them but it turns out that is my go to preference.

    First off, thanks for the contest!

    I've had a couple of surprises in my 2+ years as a vaper. The first one was the Subtank Mini. After getting started with Kanger T3Ss and the old iClear 30 tanks, my first vape with a Subtank gave me a glimpse of what sub-ohm vaping brings to the table. Now (with the exception of my Aromamizer RDTA), Subtanks are the only tanks I use.

    Then, there's the Subox kit. I got mine last year, not knowing what to expect from a Kanger mod. Since then, it's been the mod I take to work with me. I have to say that it's been rock solid and fuss-free. Good battery life and a small form factor make for a great mod!

    I agree Mandikay - Cuboid Mini is a surprise. I've not experimented with other tanks yet. The good bat life and a variety of coils does help.
