    The Psyclone Citadel 22mm RDA was sent to me from @Pho3niX90 at The Vape Den for review purposes.

    The RDA has no visible branding, and the Psyclone logo is located right at the bottom of the RDA and for me it gives it that "clean" finish.

    Inside the box:
    - Spare Parts Kit (Spare O-Rings, Spare Set Screws, Squonk Plug Screw Tool)
    - Citadel RDA
    - Accessory Bag

    Pros :
    - Standard positive squonk pin and plug for dripping included
    - Good quality post screws
    - Over squonk protection
    - Juice well is on par with most commercial RDA's
    - Easy to build on build deck
    - Good clean design lines
    - Chamber reducer to enhance flavor and warmth
    - Handles all flavour profiles really well (bakery, fruits, menthols)
    - No extreme whistling noise

    Cons :
    - Airflow control adjustability
    - Top cap gets really hot (chain vaping)
    - Top cap doesn’t lock into place
    - Requires the coil to sit low
    - Once leads are snipped they are very close to the edge
    - Post screw heads are a little bit small

    RDA Specifications:
    - 22mm Stainless Steel RDA
    - Peek Insulators
    - Black Delrin Drip Tip
    - Unique Ultem Chamber Reducer To Enhance Flavor and Warmth
    - Dual Sided Slotted Post with Large Flathead
    - Securing Set Screws
    - Hadaly Styled Airflow Angled Downward for
    - Minimizing Leaks
    - Integrated Squonk 510 pin (Plug Screw is Located in the Bottom of the Deck)
    - Width: 2.50 (in)
    - Height: 2.50 (in)
    - Depth: 1.50 (in)

    Setup used by myself :
    - iJust 2 Mod
    - Coilology Framed Staple Prebuilt Coils
    * Longevity: 3.5 weeks daily usage.
    * Resistance: 2-28/4-.3*.1/36 (0.3ohm)
    - GeekVape - Feather Cotton or
    - Swag Supreme Cotton

    IMG_20190413_131953851.jpg

    Building The Deck :
    Although it is a single coil RDA, there are 4 post holes which are sliced into the ends of each post with an angle up to keep your coils in place while tightening down. Having 4 holes means you can wrap your coils either way and easily install the coils. I found it is best to install the coils belly down.

    In Conclusion:
    Yes the RDA is a little bit on the pricey side and some would consider this as "High-end", but it is a phenomenal piece to add to your vaping equipment.

    If you give this a 5 then i'm sure the Hadaly will be around 5.3-5.5. :) You got to try it if you have not.
    Super 22mm for testing flavors.

    Nice review of the Citadel RDA @Chanelr. More of a spec and show review than a vape review for me, would want to know more about how it vapes, maybe with different juice profiles, what shines and what doesn’t or it really excels with this.a little more info on testing different coil build (Exotic vs Round Wire), which was “best build” or recommended build/wattage in your opinion etc. With hardware I feel it’s important for a reviewer to give me insight into a devices performance that is not easily picked up by reading off the manufactures tech specs.

    This extra info can be bullet points, no need to waffle on as your reviews are written, not spoke. The info is there, just needed a little more. Job well done as always.

    Many thanks for the feedback.
    Will keep it in mind for the next one.

    This RDA performs well on all juices as I use it for most of my juice reviews :)

    Juice Name: Choco-Nut Charm
    Manufactured By: Avacare Vape
    Flavour Profile: Smooth dark chocolate and hazelnut blend.
    Packaging: 120ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0 and 3mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 25PG/75VG

    This juice was sent to me from Avacare Vape for review purposes. This review was done on the 3mg. This juice falls under the Exoctica Range Sequel 2.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The label of the bottle is dark with brown on the sides, with the name big and bold, along with the flavour on the side. It also shows the ingredients and a proper warning sign.

    With the finger tasting test I got a rather odd taste of chocolate mixed with the hazelnut. It's not a sweet tasting chocolate but also not the usual taste of dark chocolate.

    With inhale I did not get any taste of chocolate or hazelhut. It is still a very funny taste I am experiencing and can not really put my finger on it.

    Upon exhale I get a little glipse of the hazelnut and dark chocolate, but is it really not what I was expecting after I saw the name and did the finger tasting test.

    Would I buy a bottle again? Sadly no.

    agree, not their best flavour. This range seems to be a hit and a miss, some flavours are really good and some just miss the mark completely

    Collaboration review time between The Vaping Chanel and Persuade Me Now.

    Juice Name: Kraken (Salts)
    Manufactured By: Nomadic Elixirs
    Flavour Profile: Green Energy Elixer.
    Packaging: 18ml easy dripper bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 20 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 50PG/50VG

    These Salts were sent to me by Nomadic Elixirs for review purposes and to Persuade Me Now for promotional purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The Nautical Series Salts and MTL was launched on the 1st of December 2018.

    Finger Tasting Tests
    TVC :
    I get a very sharp taste of the green energy and it has a slight throat burn.

    P.M.N. : Definitely a sweet energy drink flavour.

    Inhaling
    TVC :
    With inhale I found the taste to be quite similar to the green energy drink and the taste is identical to the vape juice.

    P.M.N. : Tastes just like my favorite energy drink.

    Exhaling
    TVC :
    Upon exhale I find the flavour to be semi-sweet and the same as on inhale. I think the flavour is balanced pretty well. Obviously, as mentioned in previous reviews you can't put exactly all the elements in a vape juice/nic salts, but the flavour comes pretty close.

    P.M.N. : Sweetness and still energy drink flavour and has me wanting more. This is one of my favorite flavours to use as a salt and is my top 5 as a normal juice too!! I was ecstatic to have a salt nic and mtl flavour in my top 5 favourite juice!!

    Would I buy a bottle again?
    TVC :
    I don't think so
    P.M.N. : Take my money.

    Devices/Setup Used :
    Geekvape Fint
    Renova Zero
    P.M.N : Vandy Vake Berserker

    Juice Name: Strawberry Macaroon
    Manufactured By: Vape Dinner Lady
    Flavour Profile: A combination of creamy almond coconut macaroons topped with a delicious serving of fresh strawberries.
    Packaging: 60ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0,3 and 6 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from Vape Dinner Lady for review purposes and this review is done on the 3mg.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience


    This juice falls under the Special Edition range. The design of the label is pink, white and silver. There is also a big warning sign and all other information you might need.

    With the finger tasting test I get a sweet strawberry taste, blended with almond.The flavour is very strong, which results in a throat irritation.

    Upon inhale the creamy almond coconut mimics into a taste similar to a biscuit flavour and it is blended with a taste of fresh strawberries. It finds a good middle ground between over-sweet and not sweet enough.

    With the exhale the flavour stays exactly the same which is really what I am looking for in the perfect juice. I personally think with this type of mix it can get a bit tricky to blend the flavours together perfectly.

    This flavour is stunning on the dual coil RDA and just passes my semi-ADV mark.

    Would I buy a bottle again? What do you guys think?

    information.jpg

    Juice Name: Fresh Bubble Tea
    Manufactured By: Orange by Twisp
    Flavour Profile: Chilled bubble tea with kiwi, peach and mango.
    Packaging: 50ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 3mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 25PG/75VG

    This juice was sent to me from @Twisp for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The juice comes packaged in a nifty box with the name, flavour profile and all othrt necessary details on. The label on the bottle itself just has the name and necessary warning signs on. The colour code for this flavour is turquoise.

    With the finger tasting test I first get the bubble tea taste (though a bit plasticy), followed by the mango, little bit of the peach and a proper amount of ice.

    Upon inhale the fruity flavours dance on your palate. Your first get a taste of the mango, then the peach and them a bit of the kiwi and bubble tea followed by the iciness.

    With exhale I don't get much of the fruit flavours, just a bit of the kiwi, tea and the ice.

    This juice sure does leave you feeling refreshed, and if you have a bit of a cough the ice will help with that a bit.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I believe so.

    Devices/Setup Used :

    The Twisp flavours are recommended to be used with Orange by Twisp devices only.

    Important Infor-1.jpg

    Juice Name: Kiwi Litchi
    Manufactured By: Hyp Eliquids
    Flavour Profile: Kiwi Litchi
    Packaging: 60ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from @Pho3niX90 at The Vape Den for review purposes. This review is done on the 3mg.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The label is quite busy but has an artistic design with the name standing our clearly. We also have visible the ingredients, nicotine level and a warning sign.

    With the finger tasting test I get the sweet taste of both the kiwi and the litchi, but I get a slight throat burn. It reminds me of those small boxes of fruit juices that you usually got in your lunch box for school.

    With inhale I get the juicy taste of the sweet litchi, with a light glipse of the kiwi. The flavour is not oversweet, but I still get a bit of a throat irritation.

    Upon exhale the kiwi comes a bit out more to play on your palate and finishes off the litchi very well. Though it is a simple blend of flavours, they compliment each other well.

    I think the flavour is best on the dual coil, but it's not an ADV for me even if it a fruit flavour, but it's a great fruit flavour with a price to fit any pocket.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I'm not sure.
