    @CJB85 here is another DL Combo that you could consider. All the RTAs listed below are easy to build and wick and have very good flavour.

    Vaporesso Armor Pro Mod w/ 21700 Battery

    QP Designs Juggerknot Mini RTA
    Or
    OFRF Gear RTA
    Or
    Wasp Nano RTA (New Product)

    Check a Vape Hyper, they can hook you up with the Mod and Gear RTA at a good price.

    Juggerknot Mini is available from a few Vape stores, so shop around and you will find one (check classifieds a few have gone up for sale)

    Just my 2c but you can't go wrong with a Pico 21700. Am running mine with Zeus single coil (25mm atty). Also has a little more oomph than original pico @100w.

    Im still of the opnion that anybody thats starting with building, should start with a rda and squonk mod. Rda's are easy to build and wick and you are almost guaranteed to have good flavour.

    Rta's are more difficult to build and then the wicking starts, if not wicked right you have leaks or no flavour. Just check the forum. Everytime a new hype rta comes out we see the threads. The exitement, this is so great, the flavour is the best ever. Then after a week or two, we see the my tank is leaking, I get dry hits, I get no flavour comments. Then after a month we see these rta's floading the classifieds. Go look, it happens everytime.

    Okay @CaliGuy , before I read this comment of yours, I had watched and read another ton of rieviews and had all but settled on the following idea:
    1) Pico S 100W kit, using the supplied tank and battery to get me started. I liked the idea that the mod lasts and that it takes the larger battery and tanks.
    2) Getting an Ammit MTL RTA to start practicing builds on, to eventually use as an MTL and restricted DL setup.
    3) Was going to use my twisp as my backup and eventually acquire a second mod with something like a Gear RTA, after which the MTL would become my “stealth setup”, big clouds are not popular at the office.

    Then you come along with the Armour Pro and capsized my well organized little boat ...
    The Armour is a little more expensive than the Pico, but is smaller and seems to have a better chip op board... Is it worth getting the Armour instead of the Pico??

    @CJB85 I think you are on the right and very logical track with the setup you are looking at to have a Sub Ohm Combo, add the MTL Rebuildable RTA and use your Twisp as the backup.

    You can’t go wrong with the Pico Combo as they are dependable Mods. I’ve never tried their larger Sub Ohm RTAs to comment on coil longevity or flavor.

    In that the price range of the Pico S 21700 or Pick 21700 both of which come supplied with the 21700 battery you get the Vaporesso Armor Pro Mod with the Cascade Baby RTA. Yes it’s also a very good 21700 battery option, Vaporesso have the Ceramic and Mesh Coils options which are very good from the reviews I’ve seen.

    Vaporesso’s mod is smaller, has a few more features but who uses all the features anyway. Yes it is a very good mood, you will see several forum Memeber have them and from the pics I shared you can see what it looks like with other 24mm RTAs (Max 26mm) onboard.

    Let me not detract you totally, you have some great choices from all of these Direct Lung setup and as I mention your strategy of DL Sub Ohm, with rebuildable MTL RTA and Twisp Cue as backup sounds like a good plan.

    As long as all of this is within your budget and you get something that works for you and it allows you to add future tanks and still look good then I say go for it. I feel everyone here that has been helping you just wants to make sure that you end up number 1 stopping the ciggies and number 2 don’t go down a spending spree road chasing the next best thing when you can get by and be satisfied with having a versatile setup from day one.

    I for one spent a lot of money before doing almost a full 360 degrees to finally settle on what works for me, wish I had some more guidenace from the start but I didn’t really ask so it’s my fault. Honestly just following posts on this forum and seeing post from other members finally got me to my happy place through trail and error.

    Has anyone had any experience with the Geekvape Aegis 100W? I like the idea that it can take a bit of punishment, but now looks like it uses an "odd" battery size?
    Is this one I can take a look at as well, or should it be avoided?
