    I've been looking around for my first RBA and I did a little research here on ECF to figure out which one I wanted to buy. Well it never occurred to me that my RBA might not even fit/work on my mod. I have a flat top sigelei zmax v3 and I was in between getting an AGA T2, an AGI, or an RSST. Will any of these not fit/work on my mod?

    they should all work fine. out of the three, i'd recommend the rsst to start with. the pyrex tank on the aga-t2 is nice, but it's a pain to set up correctly. i haven't personally used the agi.

    I heard that I have to do something different with my RBA coils when I use a regulated mod. What exactly do I have to do differently?

    well, i guess it depends...

    if you're going to use a ss mesh wick, you have to make sure you oxidize it very well (or at least the part the coil will touch). i believe most people try to do this anyways, so not really a huge difference, but with a mech it is possible to pulse oxidize the wick and coil (this is generally what i do).

    you also have to ensure that your coil is at or above something like 1.5 ohms. again, there are a lot of people who will wrap their coils around 1.5 regardless of what they're using it on, but you don't have the option of going lower on a regulated mod.

    all that being said, you can still get great performance out of a regulated mod and an rba. i started with an aga-t2 on a vamo (the aga-t2 is still a pita for me to set up...), and once i got it working properly, the flavor blew my mind.
