    I second you on the Soulmate @Timwis. It slipped off my mind as I didn’t use it for a few weeks.
    I like to give some of my gear a “break” for some time. When I go back to it, it’s like a new encounter!
    I’m sure you know that feeling ;)

    Hi there. I scanned through this thread quickly and I don't see anyone mentioning the Taifun GTR MTL.

    Now obviously you will have to get a clone which I suspect in South Africa is not an easy task. You are welcome to join the Fasttech group buy if you are interested in one of these.

    See this thread: https://www.ecigssa.co.za/post-lockdown-fasttech-gb.t67418/

    It is very very very easy to build on and no leaking since I got it.

    Even if you are not interested in the GTR you might want to consider the Group Buy since your are in the market for clones.

    Hey Dash, New to the forum but been on MTL's for a bit now. In the end its all about what vaping style/preference you have, but I love my MTL's.

    If you looking for an airy MTL/restrictive DL, then I suggest the Geek Vape Ammit MTL RDA, plenty of airflow options, but a good and solid MTL base. Easy to build and wick.

    Vapefly Galaxies RTA is a bit more restrictive, but also plenty of airflow options with inserts and two air holes with changing flow. Gorgeous on flavor.

    OBS Engine MTL RTA is also as easy as it comes, and with Top Airflow you wont have any leaking issues, a bit on the restrictive side, especially if you dial down to the middle or small airflow (like sucking a golf ball through a garden hose).

    The 3CVape and Vaping V1ck, Savour MTL RTA is also a winner, a bit of a bugger to get used too between the MTL and DL inserts, each of them you have to wick completely different as well, but once you get the hang of it, the flavour is spot on. Bit of a leaky bugger too when you dont get it right.

    If you are up for a challenge and a lot of (MTL) airflow, the Advken Manta MTL RTA... but it will leak, and you will have to dial it right down for MTL hit.

    Me I run 6 to 9mg freebase liquid for my MTL tanks, just the way I like it, dont do Nic Salts or High Nic Juice, but all of these tanks are great with 50/50.

    If you really want to try the best of both worlds, the Augvape Intake single coil with the 510 adaptor, 510 driptip, dialed down to a round airhole works as a MTL as well as the tank is restrictive for a DL tank in any case.

    Hope you come right and find what you are looking for, the options don't end here.

    Cheers.

    So I'm definitely keen on the group buy after 5 minutes of browsing fasttech, except I dont even know how to make a selection since there are so many options. This will take some serious research but once I shortlist a few I'll list them here for opinions. Thanks for this link

    Ok here are a few clones that I've shortlisted:
    https://www.fasttech.com/products/3042/10035943/9712824
    https://www.fasttech.com/products/3042/10009199/9650067
    https://www.fasttech.com/products/3042/10051660/9701746
    https://www.fasttech.com/products/3...st-hussar-the-end-styled-rta-rebuildable-tank

    I'm thinking I can buy a couple (maybe all) of these, which should hold me off for a few months, maybe until lockdown restrictions ease up and we get more local authentic options. What do you guys think?

    I ordered some stuff from the Vape Guys today and it seems as though he's got The Rose in stock(2 in stock)... I was actually thinking about getting one for myself... But ja, recon the COG from Wotofo is good enough.

    Sorry, can't post links, my account is not old enough... Just google The Vape Guy

    If someone decides do stock the Ares 2, I would be their 1st customer.

    I love everything about that RTA. Currently I am using the Wotofo COG and am about 70% happy with the performance. It's as if something is missing, but still a satisfying experience....

    But ja, please keep me in the loop when the Ares 2 hits our shores....

    True, but not many of us could afford to shop there. It would be like buying paintings from the Louvre.

    Personally, I would rather support some of the local stockist before supporting an international company...

    Just my personal opinion.
