    So was getting everything ready for my weekend away in the bush and started pit stopping my line of RTAs....

    1st up my FP wicked it up like I'm used to lekker first fill pissed out. Ok must have been something I did wrong check the Wicks check everything booooing coil pops out OK calm down woosa get that leg up (of the coil you dirty minded Bastard) rewick bam dry hits ok die moer hiermee lets try old trusty Reload clean and lean wicked right what happens pisses out on me.....OK lemme get the Dvarw out its never let me down rewick all good and dandy....wtf flavor is muted huh is my coil too low too high open it up all good close it up. Boom pisses out on me.....

    Screw this check the Recurve I've been neglecting quick dry burn wick in bam sorted no leaking no nothing just flavor

    Sorry to all the RTA fans but I'm done with RTAs maybe it's me but FFS IT'S A MISSON....

    Ok rant over let the flaming begin but truly I'm over it....back to my roots...

    Iv been down this road many times, i have a specific wall(smash wall)in the house allocated to rtas that just get on my nerves.

    I think my main setups are all rdas now with an occasional “hype” rta that i try

    I used to feel this way, until I got my Zeus single coils. I have 4, no issues in over 6 months. Not one leak, no dry hits and flavor for days. I'm a bit over squonking, lol

    Been trying to wick a Amitt MTL for 2 weeks now. 3 great pulls and then I drown the deck. Going to give it a go again this weekend.:confused: With a 3mm coil. At least my Siren 2’s have been treating me extremely well, and the Skyclones as well. :D But the rda’s and squonking is growing on me. And my Gasmods Nixon on the Pico Squeeze has made it the cleanest squonk in town and my car is not full of juice marks anymore. I think sometimes the RTA’s just want to give you a chance to enjoy your RDA’s a bit as well. Go figure!

    Yeah if you get it down on a specific RTA it's good but be honest nothing comes close to flavor on a RDA it's just science.....
    Also thought that and well I'm eating humble pie tonight even if you really can't build for shit a mediocre build in a RDA beats a RTA hands down imo

    LOLZ! I know how you feel. My first setup was a Voopoo Drag with Wotofo Bravo (everybody was raving about the flavour of the Bravo and how trusty it is). Weeeelllll... that lasted for about a month! Everytime I filled it (top fill) the thing would leak (yes, I know about the pressure etc, but despite my best efforts and all the aces I had, it still performed like a drama queen). And not just leak a drop or two, die ding huil asof hy 'n tantrum gooi!!!!

    Suffice to say, I decided to go the Squonk & RDA route. Got myself a Pulse 80W with Recurve and have never looked back. The Recurve performs like a charm, EVERY TIME!!!!

    Actually looking at getting another Recurve for my recently acquired Pulse X. Not a fan of the dual coil Pulse X atty. Then again, I might just need some time to get used to it...

    I feel your pain, and it will always happen at the worst times.

    Still waiting for that all rounder RTA. I've tried a few RDA's but prefer the vape on a RTA. Used the Ammit 25mm for around a year and got tired of the leaking, so I replaced it with an Intake, which is a great leak proof, very flavourful vape (Best flavour I ever got out of any atomizer) but for some reason you have to rewick every single day no matter what build, it just gunks up. Was on a conference for 3 days two weeks ago and it was a hassle to rewick as the conference was 08:00 till late everyday.

    Hoping the Wotofo Serpent Elevate will be the answer to all the problems and money wasted on RTA's.

    See! Thas's exactly the problem there is always some kak with a RTA and that's what they want you to believe 'this RTA is the BEST' tail wagging the dog....

    I must say only RTA I have never had issues with was the Aromamizer Plus then again had leaking issues on refilling....

    Lol!

    Man, that's why I stopped using RTA's and got myself 2 RDA's. But then again, with RDA's, if you overdrip it will leak all over the mod. But still better flavour and less hassle to be honest.

    Exactly why I got rid of my Zeus Dual RTA - it was such a bloody mission. I had enough of it and sold it within a month.

    That's the thing and maybe I'm starting drama but everyone and his dog was raving about the Zeus what a ball of kak I literally gave mine away i think....

    Same with the DAWG the Reboot the Dead Rabbit RTA....it's all hype but if you really come down to it RTAs are just trying to be like RDAs which they never will... Nuff said I'm out lekker bois ek gaan nou slaap tomorrow in the bush.....this is where I'm going....

    Zeus single is super easy to re-wick, just as easy as any RDA. Leak proof and awesome flavour.

    OH wow... so much of hate for the RTA... I feel the same way about RDA's... over juice under juice dry burn to much juice spit leak fall over on desk and juice everywhere a general pain in the rear end!

    I can build and rewick a Dvarw in my sleep... and a decent amount of juice so I can go out with it... flavour outstanding... no leaking... and a generally all-around Chicken Dinner!

    But at the end of the day whatever makes you happy and keeps you off the stinkies is the right setup.

    Obly RTA that never gave me shit was my Serpent SMM, but its been lying in its box since its last glass section broke. Have a Bonza, A Drop and a Druga all on mech squonks and a DJV RDTA as my "tank" replacement. I tend to favour my DJV though these days. Dont think I'll purchase any RTA in the near future, but definitelylooking into some more RDTA's
