    So you ordered last month, the 22nd or something like that?

    Actually, I ordered a little bit after that. I was on the site, ordering some spares for my other one, and noticed that the month's list was still open, so I ordered another one. I should get it this week. My first one took about a month. Ordered on 8/24, and received around 9/23 or 24.

    I see. Good to read its worth having two GTs. I'm hoping it performs well; on par with my KFs.

    I've had my Gt for over three weeks. I use it everyday right along side my KFL & my Russian. All work so well, I have not used any other device in all that time. They are all sitting in drawers... (I do keep a Pro Tank Mini & a Fatty V2 with me) can't let go of my back ups. :)

    This thread doesn't receive a lot of action. I grabbed spares with my purchase, and the solid tank section.

    Could someone post some pics up of the internals/build next time you tear down?

    Or perhaps there is another thread moving along for the GT discussion?

    Darn, I just rewicked yesterday, and forgot to take pictures. Anyway, I use the same coil build I use in the Kayfuns. Cotton ball wick. I trim the cotton just a little beyond the slots. Maybe 1-2mm. Make sure to put a couple drops of juice around the o ring on the cap that goes over the wick/coil before screwing it down, so that the o ring doesn't pinch.

    Got my GT and set it up with cotton. Gotta say it's performing like a champ. I have a couple of KF 3.1s and an Ithaka and the GT is on par if not better than those. It's surprising this RBA doesn't get more love. I just find it odd that people are still using Genesis RBAs when you consider the whole need to tilt, leaking and the issues with chromium on SS mesh. The silica based RBAs like the Kayfun and Taifun are so much easier to setup and produce amazing flavour, throat hit and vapour.

    What ever keeps them off cigs and if Genesis rebuildables are doing it,that is what they will continue to use.

    I agree, the Taifun is a great atty. It probably doesn't get a lot of talk because they're not as readily available as Kayfuns.
    I do still love my mesh gennys though. I don't see myself completely retiring them. I use them in rotation along with my kayfun, Taifun, and Squape.

    well the tilt issue is something I have only run into on a mechanicals, on my vv the genis run fine and can run dry when held vertically.
    The chromium "issue" is still up for debate and many people like me have gone to unoxidized wick setups to help lessen or avoid this problem (if it is a problem)

    and so far as well as my other attys work they still do not beat the mesh flavor for me, for many this is a fact, so much so that even Pbusardo has set up his taifun with SS mesh and said it is the best vape he has ever had, even better then the soft wick he started with. when my taifun actually does decide to show up I will be going to the same setup.

    Fair enough. I was a fan of SS Mesh but the oxide discussion just scared me off and setting it up without oxidizing was a bit of a pain. Either way, I would also give cotton (from organic cotton balls) a shot in the Taifun. Flavour and wicking wise it beats silica and ekowool. Can't give a good comparison to SS Mesh in terms of flavour because I abondoned mesh some time ago.

    This is 5 wraps of 28g kanthal on doubled organic cotton wick; it registers just above 0.8 ohms. I don't run a draw tube on mine so I set the coil as low to the base as possible. The top strand of cotton runs through the wick hole, but I tuck the bottom strand down to the base in order to pick up any juice that might inadvertently find its way down there. Because I don't use a draw tube, not having any wick at the base could cause juice (e.g. from condensation) to find its way down the air hole. This setup has given me the best results thus far, and I've been setting up the Taifun like this for the past few months.

    I got my TGT from ecis-shop (ordered on a Friday and arrived to me in Utah 2 Mondays later...So 10 days including two weekends)

    I can't say enough good things about the owner of the store!!! Really nice guy and great to work with!!!

    He and I are both into ceramic wicks, and is even sending me a prototype Taifun ceramic wick accessory kit to try on the TGT. (Should be to me the first part of next week)


    My first setup was a 1.3ohm cotton micro build. For me at least, this is my first build and better than any cotton build I have done on my Russian (Kayfun 3.1 clone).
