    I vape MTL exclusively and I'm tired of being somewhere where I don't have immediate access to a vape store and running out of coils. So I'm thinking of buying an RTA.
    This will be my first experience with RTAs and building coils.
    From what I could gather, except for the flavor, Siren 2 seems like the best and easiest option.
    I would like to hear some opinions on this matter and if my choice and reasoning makes sense. Do you think there's a better option for someone in my situation?

    I like the Siren V2 flavor, but that's kind of a love it or hate it situation frankly so I can't exactly advise you one way or another and I will note I use strong flavors in it, and I think it tastes fine.

    I will say the Ares is a similar setup (velocity style deck) and I find it just as easy to use as the Siren and set up, and it's overall just a nice, solid easy to use RTA. I find the flavor slightly better in the Ares with SOME juices and I also run the Siren wide open, it just does better for me that way.

    I will say, I find them pretty comparable for setup (I use rayon though) and neither is exactly difficult. I do LOVE my Sirens (I have 4) but I will also note that I like my two ares a lot to and you'd likely find more people to tell you that they like the flavor. I like both, and have no flavor complaints about the Siren V2, although I know complaints are out there (as well as other satisfied users.)

    Best of luck,

    Anna

    This is why I buy multiple packs of coils. If I'm going to be away I just carry everything I need so I do not have to depend on a local store where I am at. My experience with RDA and RTA tanks is limited to older models other than the asMODus Zesthia that I purchased not long ago. Most of my older RDA's are MTL but I hate dripping so I never cared for them much.

    That could be a solution for some. I don't like to spend money on multiple packs because sometimes I go days or weeks preferring to use just 1 of my tanks. Buying multiple packs for each tank I could use and all the other expenses would make a hole in my wallet. :unsure:

    Thanks, I was considering Ares earlier but being 24mm I don't have a mod big enough for that. Plus that I like a tighter MTL draw.
    Ultimately it looks like Siren2 is what I need. Now all I need to do is researching what type of wire and ohm resistance is the best.

    Well I actually vastly prefer my 22 mm Sirens to my 24 mm ones, so if that's what you are looking for, well the good news is, flavorwise, they are also better. Etc.

    Good luck, I'm sure it will go just fine.

    I've recently switched over to sub-ohm MTL vaping (~2 months). So far I've got: Cthulhu Hastur (24 & 22), Siren II 24, SXK & SJMY Doggy, SXK Pocket and as of today, the VV Berserker (24 2ml).

    What I value most on my tanks are
    1. flavor/vape quality - so far, all I've listed are on par;
    2. ease of rebuilding: not having too many parts (juice controls) or floating decks (a minus for the Pocket);
    3. ease of refilling: usually top fill (a minus for the Doggy)
    4. looks/a fitting drip tip (SS tips on the Doggy/Pocket get way too hot for my vaping)
    5. well machined/sealed airflow control (I hate hate hate rings that are hard to adjust)
    I'd say that considering these qualities, I'd order mine (order of preference) as such:
    Hastur Mini > Berserker > Big Hastur > Doggy > Siren II > Pocket

    So far, the Siren is the only one that has flooded/leaked on me on several rebuilds. The top refill also gets somewhat hard to open with the huge o-ring/pressure lock.

    PS: All my considerations are using TC (DNA75) at around 210-230 Celsius, 0.45-0.65 Ohms at 15-22.5W
