    The Shado OMNI has to be my favourite RTA i've ever had the joy to use so far. (except the Dwarv which i've never had the pleasure to test drive)

    I'm a flavour junkie and this OMNI has it in bucket loads.

    The Reload RTA for me has just been win. After buying a new RTA every month, I found the holy grail and have had it for almost 2 years(I did buy 3 atomisers after it).

    Saying this I have not tried any of QP Designs, Taifun or Skyline offerings, keen to buy the new upcoming QP bottom air flow RTA.

    I guess I can only post from Rta's and Rda's which I've used personally.

    My all time favourite RTA has to be the reload rta and my all time favourite RDA has got to be the OG Goon thus far.

    I simply cannot do without either of them.

    I remember a few reports of guys having this issue when I had mine, it was only a handful though. For most who had them they were super-easy to get the wicking right and one of he most flavourful RTAs I've used to date. I've not had a single issue with mine. I think you may have just been unlucky there.

    And NOTHING leaks more oil than a FORD. :-D

    I also have a Gear rta and it sucks. Definitely doesn't have the flavor that the reviews said it has and it spits like a Egyptian Cobra doesn't matter how I wick it, even got VK to wick it. Soooo will be selling it.

    this is my opinion opinions change from person to person

    RDA duel coil : drop (i own 2 of them they sit upon my mechs)

    RDA single coil : enthion (this sits upon my squanker)

    RTA duel coil : the kylin v2 would win here


    RTA single coil : the zuse (og)

    how ever it is all affected by your coils and cotton you use ;p

    I have 2.5mm alien (3x26/36) . I got the coil dropped down as low as possible and wicking needs to be tight( not too tight that it deforms the coil when pulling it through)

    The best one is neither rda or rta. Its a squonkable rdta.

    Top flow rta's will never have the best flavour and the airflow is not always the best.
    Bottom airflow rta's will sometimes get close to rda's in flavour but they tend to leak and is finicky.

    Then you get the great flavour and easy build of an rda. But you must either drip or squonk. Dripping is out, to much hassle. Squonk on rda is can also be anoying, either squonk the whole time or over squonk etc. Then your flavour change the whole time depending on how wet your wick is..

    In comes the saviour from the vape gods, the bf rdta. You get the flavour and easy build of the rda Squonking is only once in a while to fill the tank, no leaking no over squonking. You let your wicks go down to bottom of tank, so constant same flavour, wick is always saturated the same.

    @Juan_G 2.5mm Coil is what the Gear RTA needs, I have tried both sizes and prefer the 2.5mm over the 3mm.

    But I will say that I have never had any spitback or wicking issues with the Gear RTA, it even works well with regular Ni80 26g round wire.

    Thank you Paul I would never have thought of that!!!
    Should I add wraps? I'd like to get to about .4 or .5 on a dual coil but only getting .2 on the claptons? Chasing flavour, or trying to but im still a bit lost with this.

    Reload RTA...end thread. Many Youtube reviewer's personal choice. Joking, I hear the QP Fatality is great too.

    Honestly, what I have learned about vape gear in 2.5 years is you get what you pay for. Cheap gear shit vape etc.

    Reload RTA with 3mm coils. There will be no buyers remorse.
