    I have been meaning to post this thread for awhile. I am an RTA guy. I have drippers and enjoy them, but an RTA fits my lifestyle.

    [​IMG]

    I also have genesis atomizers. Though they do have a tank reservoir, I have chosen not to include them in this thread.

    I also love my squonkers.

    I have kept this thread focused on atomizers with a bottom coil, rebuildable deck, that have a juice reservoir above or surrounding the coil. I guess the Heron and Prometey, as well as the FlashEVapor, might be in their own class, but for my purposes, they fit here.

    Though I have owned most all of them, I currently do not have any that require non-resistence wire legs, i.e. Penelope, Odysseus, Ithaka. Nor have I incuded carto-tanks.

    Finally, all these are authentic OEM. And though I have used most non-clone China originals, i.e. Fogger and Lemo, I am not including them as well.

    I currently have arriving this week a Svoesmesto Kayfun 4, a Taifun GT 2, and a GP Spheroid v3.

    I think I own, or have owned just about every RTA ever made. I know of a few, such as the Ruzgar by Highwind Innovations , and the Gamma by Art of Exhale. If you know of any others, please let me know.

    Anyway, I often here folks looking for recommendations or asking for comparisons between RTAs. I hope to add to this thread detailed pictures of each tank, including internals, build pics, and my take on each. I also invite any and all to contribute.

    Finally, I will say that I LOVE each and every one of them. I have had great success with each one. They are all in rotation. Now, of course, there are some that I like better than others, but each has some very innovative aspect, and I commend each designer for their contribution to our community and industry. I do respectfully request that there be no reference or mention of clones or counterfeits in this particular thread out of respect to the creators of these wonderful devices.

    So, for now, I have 17 different RTAs to present. I do have multiples of many and other iterations of most. Previous versions, optional OEM tanks and configurations, and aftermarket add-ons. But this is the state they currently reside. So...on with the show.

    Gus Phenomenon Lite

    I received the first iteration of the Phenomenon. The flavor was fantastic but the draw was too tight. Gus then came out with the Zest version. It had more airflow. Then he came out with the Lite version which added even more airflow and a poly tank and top fill capable.

    I like the Lite the best. Plenty of airflow and it is adjustable so you can tighten it up if desired. The top fill is easy. And still has PHENOMENAL flavor.

    I hope you all find this thread interesting and helpful, but most of all I hope that we all can contribute to help both the new members and veterans alike stay off the cigarettes and get the most out of vaping.

    Impressive collection you have there Sedge, interested to know what the favourite is (if you had to pick only one). I can see this thread becoming a useful reference point.

    I find myself using the Tilemahos a hell of a lot, it gives an extremely good vape, easy to refill and rewick and its bulletproof.

    I love the Tilemahos and it is in my hand as I type coincidentally.

    My #1 pick that wins in Best in Show or in the All-around competition is the FlashEVapor v3. I recommend it over any other for a noob to rebuilables. The only downside is its size and weight. But it is the easiest to build and rewick, easiest to fill, won't leak even on a plane, nary a dry hit, can take high watts and the flavor and vapor are superior.

    I think Ruzgar is one of the best RTA of kayfun style. it's very good fav and able to refill without any tools too. you should try it sometime if you really like RTA.:)

    Nice thread and rta`s. Ive been wondering for awhile now how much airflow the tilmanhos has, in particular in comparison to the orchid. The orchid has been my go to tank for sometime now. Currently trying out the lemo though. It vapes well

    Noticed your Eviva-T! A real sleeper IMO. Great flavor and an easy build. That's a terrific collection.

    Thank you Doc.

    Firstly, it is gorgeous, especially in hybrid on the WE2. The afc is one of the best I've used. It is an outstanding atomizer, only to get better after MB tweeks it from the feedback of us beta testers.
    Hi jp.

    My second has been lost over the Atlantic for 3 weeks. Really lost or stuck in customs. But my In'ax MK2R and my TGT2 have been taking longer than usual as well. TGT2 just showed stateside tracking this morning finally.
    Thank you willzleg.

    I just tried them together. Orchid definitely has more airflow. But as a dual, it needs it. The Tilemahos w/afc wide open is still a loose draw. Better flavor by far and super easy to set up and refill. Orchids are finicky for most. We'll see what v1.5 has in store.



    YOU ARE SOO RIGHT. It is my wife's favorite. One of mine too. I have two of them. Great dripper too with the drip kit option. A flavor monster, easy fill. No leaking, flooding or dry hits. Super reliable. Mounting a micro coil is a pita. If ordering, don't forget to get the wide ceramics.

    Another sleeper and the one I take when I need something lightweight, really reliable and easy to fill and maintain is the Ataman. It is my Disneyland atty. Outstanding vapor and flavor.

    This is the plan as time allow (while running a solo law practice and having two small children).

    I'll try to do a couple a week. Probably start with the lesser known ones.

    Exxxcellent thread! That's an outstanding collection and a great history of the RTA. No doubt this will evolve into a significant reference point for many others. Great job! Subscribed for more goodness.
