RE: What did you get today?
I did finally get the TM RDA2's yesterday. The vape is great, actually a lot better than the 13/9. I'm surprised by that, because everything I've compared the 13/9 to has paled in comparison; I didn't think I could beat it, much less beat it handily.

I'm no paulS level RDA expert, since I have only had a few for comparison, but this is what I have and/or had: 13 Heavens/9 Hells, MadHatter, Haze, Velocity, Twisted Messes RDA2. It is important to note that all of these are clones.

The new two post deck of the TM2 is easier to build on than the 13. The juice well also has a bit higher capacity because of the post design upgrades in the RDA2. But the real difference here is in the airflow. Much more airflow now with the TM2, which is basically an instant upgrade to vapor and flavor. I really didn't think I would beat the 13/9; I am surprised. It is as airy as an unrestricted breath, but without having to open air holes above the coils (which takes away from flavor). All the air goes past the coils themselves, which is great.

There are two drawbacks in my opinion. One is clone related, one is design related. The first one- Allen key grub screws. I hate them! They strip out so easily, not to mention the cheap-ass clones were packed with an allen wrench that doesn't even fit. Stupid. The second drawback is the chuff cap bore. Gone is the super-wide cap option the 13/9 has. I am not a fan of narrow caps and this would probably have been a deal-breaker for me, but luckily the cap from the 13/9 screws right on to the RDA2. In fact, I could take the body of the RDA2 and put it on the 13/9. The measurements are the same. So I will soon try the improved airflow of the RDA2's body on the 13/9 just to compare.

My conclusion on this mini-review: Definitely get the TM RDA2! But do yourself a favor, like I will too... Get the authentic. You're not only helping the designer, but you're helping yourself. I can't wait to vape the authentic when the budget tells me I can.

Thanks for the update TW. I was planning on getting one or the other soon as I can fit it into my budget. Now I know which one I'll get Smile

RE: What did you get today?
Based on the horrendous build quality of this clone, I will not be able to build on it again (built on it just twice). The posts are already loose and the grub screws are already stripped, ha. I strongly urge anyone considering one to get the authentic. I will have to put the body of this thing on the deck of the 13 until I get the real deal. It's just total junk. The pictures of the Twisted Messes authentic version look light years better than this and I can't wait to get it.

RE: What did you get today?
Oh, I knew it going in. I've been really lucky that the Compvapes 13/9 clone has held up. I really pretty much got the clone TM2 just to see if it would be worth dropping the coin to replace the 13/9, and it will be. I expected crap, just not total crap. No worries.

RE: What did you get today?
Built at .12 ohm with the new coils that are built higher (my ass) from Gently. And it is authentic, lol. And way too expensive. But it is pretty.

.12?! I've almost doubled them  Tongue 

OK some will still be low, most of them will hit close to .2 I'd have thought.

That is one sexy mod paul!!
