    We all own a few atties ... collection build up over time or just being a collector.
    Some get sold over the time and some are kept as favourites.
    But then you get those lemons, you love to hate them and hate to love them... they stay part of the family and you just can not get rid of, you even dust them off from time to time to have a go, just to remember why you hate it so much...
    Mine is a Prince V12 with RBA....
    Whats yours ?

    Mine would be the original kylin, sort of original.
    People that followed the kylin versioning in the beginning would agree that the current versioning of them doesn't make sense.
    There was kylin v1, which had a lot of issues, they fixed them and it was dubbed v2

    However this year there is a new v2.

    Anyways, I had the v2 (probably v1.2) and used it for very long, it was my only tank for over a year. Eventually with all the cleaning and vaping it seemed it had warped a bit and whenever I would take off the top cap to refil, it would unscrew at the bottom of the tank. Or even worse if the liquid would get hot (viscosity change) it would leak like a mofo

    Gave me much enjoyment and will probably keep it as a momento of my first tank that got me into vaping.

    Mine is the Manta. Used it for more than a year and loved the flavour it gave but the every now and then leaking due to either wicking being wrong or it just decided that it's time for me to clean my mod again drove me up the wall. Still have it and still use it every now and then but moved on, eventually.

    my avocado 24 is the only RDTA I still have own and just cant seem to let it go.

    Th refill option on it is what got me into RDTA and the flavour is just awesome. Now I know that have been many after and before the Avo but it just has a special place in my heart.

    Only reason I dont like it is that its one of those tanks that must be kept straight up at all times.

    On the leaking issue when you fill and this applies to all top fill RTA's

    Remove your drip tip when you screw the top cap on.
    If you look down the hole where the drip tip fits you will see that as you screw the cap down there is a Gap between the chimney and cap which allows the air to escape as it screws down.
    Literally on the last half turn the gap will close and seal the tank

    With the drip tip in the air has no place to escape so as you screw it down you force this air into the tank and this pressure in return then forces the juice through the wicks unsettling them and causing leaking into the airflow.

    I threw my Coilart mage V1 in the dam near my home after owning it for a few days, and going against general opinion I want to love my Zeus single coil but getting it wicked correctly is an invitation to extremely bad language.

    I know so many tricks of how to stop it from happening but the Manta still has it's days when it just wants you to clean everything and then no matter what you do you'll end off cleaning it, and your mod, and your hands, and your desk and apologise to anyone in listening distance for the new words you taught them.

    The Oumier Wasp for me. Everyone seems to love that RDA but no matter what build, material or placement- I’m just underwhelmed. I take it out of its box every few months hoping that I’ve figured it out.

    Love to Hate It but will keep it. Someday I’ll get you my pretty >:) !!!

    Had the exact same experience. Trust me, when you finally get a build in that works, there's few RDA's the come close. ;)

    Doubt that many would remember these. For me it has to be the Fogger V4 and the Orchid RTA's. They would suffer endless dry hits and just when you want to throw it away, it worked perfectly. Only to start the whole frustrating process over again when you had to rewick.
