    I just received the Smok RPM80 kit today. Perfect Vape screwed up the order because I ordered the RPM80 Pro kit, but that's not my gripe at the moment. I was super hyped to try this new pod system out. It comes with 2 pods. One for RPM coils at .4 ohms and one for the RGC coils at .17 ohms. (I also bought a 5 pack of RGC coils to boot) I decided to try out the larger RGC coil first, it's the low ohm massive cloud coil that I originally bought the the mod for. I primed the coil and let it sit for about 15 minutes. The first hit was great at 50w nice clouds nice flavor. Second hit was starting to give a burnt taste. The third hit had me coughing up a lung. I went through 4 of the RGC coils today. Vaping low watts like 20-30 works fine with this .17 coil.... Really? as soon as I crank it up the burnt taste happens. I went from 70/30 juice to 50/50 juice not much difference in the performance.
    For yucks and giggles I decided to try out the smaller RPM .4 coil. Didn't expect much being that the purpose of me buying the RPM80 was for the highly hyped RGC coilheads. I started at 25w. Nice flavor minimal clouds. As I raised the wattage on this coil I never got a burnt hit. Now I'm at 50w with the RPM .4 coil. It's performing like a champ. The RGC coils performed like a chump....
    Maybe it was a bad run of RGC coils, I don't know. I'm looking to get a pack of the RPM coils now. I'm curious if anybody else has had issues with the RGC coils......

    I have the RPM and RGC RBA kits coming with two Fetch Pro 80 devices. I sure hope this was not a waisted pre-order??

    It sounds like your coil is not keeping up. Is your pod full of juice? Try to fill your pod full. Open the sealing silicone gasket on the pod sometime to release air pressure. Try to tilt your pod when you vape. Try to prime your coil first with couple drops of juice before insert it into your pod.

    I also have the same issues with 3 mg free base juice fire at 45 watt. I think i will test with salt nic juice next time after 2 times change the RGC coil because of the burn cotton taste.

    Kinda have the same issue w/ the RGC conicals in my fetch pro.
    The conicals just get too damn hot.
    Waiting 5-10 secs between hits seems to help, tho.
    Im def looking forward to the straight RGC meshes.

    Also, noticed it wicks a lil’ better when I hit the Fetch pro w/ fire button up.
    Prob was obvious, but figured it was worth mentioning.

    Same issue here. I find that you have to hold the mod a certain way and tilted just right. It sucks. Anyone wanna buy mine? Lol

    I still have not received items. My 2 fetch pro's and the 2 coil heads are still awaiting third pushed back delivery at FT. I will review when ever I receive them though. I also have my ratel XS with dual coil RBA head that is awaiting packaging but with no workers it won't get packaged yet.

    Well I got a shipped notice over night for the Ratel XS and dual coil RBA. It's not showing up as in system so still don't know if any workers are back? They could have met printed ship label and waiting??

    I am in the UK and ordered my RPM80 from the SMOK website (BIG MISTAKE) they are just about the worst company I have ever dealt with (blaming the Coronavirus for not refunding me for the coils does Paypal have the virus?)the only way to get an order shipped is to bombard them with emails until you finally get a reply.
    Anyways back to the subject.
    I also ordered a set of RGC coils but they got "lost in shipping" and finding them in this country is very difficult but saying that the one that came with the devce is still running smooth for about 3 weeks at around 40watts but tbh I prefer the RPM coils I just wanted the device for the larger battery all I use is salt nics as I have been a heavy smoker for 36yrs up until I got an RPM40 8 weeks ago.

    I ordered mine on 11th Feb and got it shipped on the 18th Feb by simply bothering them till they shipped it. It sounds excessive but its the only way you will get anything from them. Keep sending emails to order@smoktech title the email with the order number and just hit them with "Please ship my order or a refund will be requested" they hate the word "refund"...Good luck too you.

    i've used 2 of the 0.17Ω RGC coils and both have given me dry hits after a while. typical SMOK poor QC. the RPM 0.4Ω coil has been great so far.
    I've got some 0.3Ω RGC coils coming so hopefully they work better. would give better battery life as well

    I own a Smok Nord 2 and rpm80 pro,the Nord 2 0.4 mesh coil is so much better flavour then the rpm80 0.17 conical mesh.I was vaping the conical mesh at 60 watts,the flavour is not tasteful.One thing is that I haven’t tried the .4 mesh coil on the rpm80 though
