Are ya looking for a dripper, or a tank, or one of each?

As far as drippers go Pirate VapeStore has some good stuff. Recently purchased the IGO-W it can be built as a single or dual coil. Plenty of room for all sorts of odd coiling. Also he should be getting the IGO-L back in stock soon. Single coil version of the W, lil more room due to lack of third post. Both have a nice "juice pool" so you're not redrippin every 5 minutes... brb

Sorry, life interuption lol.

Well I have the DID clones for tanks. Think they are called "Genny" style. Toasted SS mesh rolled up ect. I'm not a huge fan of those. Got one working good though.

Now if I did go to buy another I'd go for the RSST, insulated whick hole, tank bottom also insulated from body, except for a buggered coil virtually a "short free" device.

But so far I'm an IGO fan, wire, string, good ohms, and ZING!

Yup, that one looked cool. If the IGOs had holes in the terminals like the Phoenix theyd be perfect.

Now as far as the Ribbon wire is concerned I'm thinking a finishing nail, or brad could make a hole in the ribbon for the screw terminal on a RDA (dripper RBA).

Ok just noticed in this pic...



The base is threaded as well. Makes me want it even more!

Though I am impressed about how well the IGO-W holds togeather.

Yea, but how easy is the draw??

I am a bit anxious to get a RBA, (no dripper for me either) but I want one that's got a nice easy, perhaps even effortless draw to it with tons of vapor.

Think the RSST has a medium to light draw.

But the good thing is. If the airpath is in the cap, its easily reamed out for a looser draw.

The RSST is a good starter RBA.

DragOn, Stormy sells an RBA for $10 called the "Scar RBA". Stainless, dual coil. It is a dripper, but it comes with 2-octopus(8 wicks; yes that makes 16) coil set-ups so it holds about the same as a regular Boge carto,almost a ml of juice. Moderate draw,not airey. It uses O-rings not threads to hold the cover on and any Drip tip will work. none come with the RBA.

Not a knock at you Bikes, but again we see a blurring of terms. That Smok Scar should be labelled an RDA-> D for dripper.

No problem, JJ. I have a lower threshold on labeling. My first one was very satisfactory and proved the accuracy of the description that Stormy gave. I ordered a couple more because they work for me.
BTW, Johnny the FastTech wicks I ordered appear to be silica, mine act like silica under the torch.
I have decided to not waste anymore resources on SS wicks.

I always have trouble getting the cap off my IGO-L. I want one of these, but I can't find anywhere that has them yet.

Ok, at this point I am using 3 strands for the top wick and these are working better than the original coils. Still just 4 wraps of wire and getting 1.7 to 2.1 ohms each time. I will get adventurous at some point and try more and fewer wraps just to see what I get, but the main goal was to get a good vape with no leakage and that I have now.

That looks like it takes a regular atty.

My own little experiment.



It's a 306 (and cheap, clear 306 drip tip) sitting on an open 510-> 510 adapter. The adapter's/atty's notches/junction are in the liquid. I also opened up the side air inlet (in the threads of the 306) a bit. As long as you hear a slight fluttering while vaping it works well. A couple of dry pulls are needed now and then.

I naturally vape at ~ 4 oclock.

If you look closely you can see the bridge of the 306. I had also tried drilling a couple holes in the clear section, then running a couple strands of 1mm wick through/across and letting the tails drop down into the liquid, like a CE2 (a guy named Bino had a vid). That was without the bottom adapter added. I believe the pic you posted works in a similar manner.
