Picking new shinies
Hey y'all! 

So since I'll be visiting gentlydoingit* in a few days, I've been browsing his local B&M's site to see what shiny stuff they have that I need. There are a few things that have stuck out as potentially good buys, so I figured I'd see if anyone here has tried them and might have a recommendation.
  • Mutation X v5 RDA
  • Phenotype-LS RDA
  • Mad Hatter v2 RDA
  • Limitless 24 RDA
  • Avocado 24 RDTA
  • Tsunami RDA
  • iJoy Combo RDTA/RDA
So, any thoughts on those? Of course the actual shop might have different inventory than the website, but I figured it's a place to start before I go. I'm leaning toward the Phenotype-LS, it looks like a better (and authentic) version of my Phenotype-L (clone). Also maybe the Mad Hatter v2 or the Mutation X v5 since they're cheaper. 

Usually when I visit new shops I like to get a bottle of house juice since it's something I can't get elsewhere, but I want to get something that will last a while to commemorate the occasion. HiBuba

Michael I have two Avocado 24 RDTA. I love the build deck on the AVOCADO and with very little effort, when you master its wicking, it's awesome. I have one in single coil and one in dual configuration. Smile

I got the Tsunami from Paul on the SMPL2.0 Although I've rewicked it, haven't built on it as Paul had a nice coil on it....not going to pull a guru coil from the master until I need to. Smile

I have eyeballed and even tried the Madhatter v2 - LOVE the idea of the hinged drip tip... but haven't seen it in any of the local shops or surfed upon it online but in my recent quest for a new RDA, may throw that one into contention with the GOON. Smile See, even across the pond, you're a great help! Smile

RE: Picking new shinies
I have a Goon clone from FastTech, honestly I wasn't that impressed but I might change my mind seeing an authentic in person. The thing I didn't like was how short the screws were, since I make big FCs I need a big hole and it took ten minutes of struggling to fit dual 26ga core FCs in there. But if the authentic has longer screws that might be a good option. 

I noticed some gorgeous tube mechs on their site, unfortunately I'm just not in a position to afford an authentic mech when I have a very nice Caravela tube mech clone. I did look through some of the mods though, and I like the look of the Laisimo v1 and Sigelei Fuchai. Hmm. I'll have to talk to the boss (Mrs. Michael) about our budget for this but I suspect it's well under £100, probably more like £50.

I'll have to check out that MadHatter v2. I like the hinged tip idea too, but the original was to shallow and leaked like a woman watching Titanic.

from what i understand the mad hatter V2 has a velocity style deck .
the leaking with th mad hatter was a shame , it's so conductive and durable . if not for the constant mess it would still be a go to rda.

RE: Picking new shinies
I didn't mind the deck as much as the leaking. Plus, since it was my first RDA I was not good at it yet and that only compounded matters. Overfilled, tipped it too far all the time, etc. Not a beginner's RDA.
