I'm getting ready to purchase an RBA or 12(lol) and with all the threads and opinions floating aroung i'm curious as to the reasons for it. Is it a personal preferance?> Is it a matter of what Reo your using? Is it a matter of cost? Is it a matter of what juice you use? How is there no standard for what a wick is made from? Why can there not be a chart for the length of wire along with gauge for making coils? Standards for what to wrap your wire around?(does it really matter?) I'm sure i'll figure it out as i progress into RBA's but i'd like to start with the right equipment. Also, does a Kick for the Grand elevate me into some kind off nirvanna? I enjoy what i'm currently doing, although there are some inconsitantsies(sp) Thanks for taking the time to respond Dano.
